What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.

war over some rocks?


when Hitler goes to war, it is not about some rocks but about Europe as prize.

DON'T CRY FOR ME, CHINA . . .

In China, there is now a schism in the military and in the civilian government.  One side says giving up Dioayudao in order to continue China's economic growth is the best solution.  The other side says defending Diaoyudao at all cost, even at the cost of the economy retrogressing, is the best policy.  Lately, an admiral and a general have repeatedly found official venue in Chinese media to promote the appeasement agenda, signifying that this is the real intent of the new administration.

The old guard, the traditional Chinese convservatives, are fighting back by taking steps to assert Chinese sovereignty with concrete actions.  They are likely to be sidelined, if not removed from their jobs soon.

China seems on the verge of a repeat of the First Sino-Japanese War, where corruption, not Japanese military power, destroys China in the end.  Thoroughly, and this time, permanently.

"I have a dream . . . " said Martin Luther King.

China too has a dream, a dream of social equality, equal rights, and human rights, all within reach of the present generation.

But Japan also has a dream, a dream of international inequality, where the Chinaman must remain a servant and a coolie, to the superior races of Aryans and Japanese.

China seeks to achieve its dream with hard work, honesty and integrity.

Japan seeks to achieve its dream by stealing the islands and later on, the territories, of its neighbors, first those near, like Korea and Dioayudao, then those slightly farther away, like Taiwan and Pescadores, and finally, even the Korean peninsula and the Chinese mainland.  They too want China to then fulfill its dream, of working hard, being honest to their Japanese masters, and keeping faith with their duties to the Japanese empire.  All the best of the Chinese people in the service of the superior Japanese and Aryan races.

Can China achieve her dream and Japan also achieve her dream at the same time?

Two dreams in two different countries, for their wishes, how they pine.  But only one dream will be fulfilled.  Only one dream for all time.
