U: hi there
M: how r u?
U: I’m doing OK
M: Now is Moon Festival in China
U: Yes…i know that
M: you always surprise me
U: why do I surprise you…you should know I am the smartest person on your contact list
U: I saw the news about that Chinese captain getting a 10-day vacation in Japan…He is so lucky
M: 10 days more.
M: He had been detained for 13 days before it
M: what do you think that Japanese want by pissing off Chinese government?
U: he is probably getting to eat so much sushi
U: why was this captain arrested?
M: why does Japan want to piss off China?
U: I don’t think they want to…This captain must have broken some law to get arrested
M: Chinese fishermen alway have been fishing there.
U: Fishing where?
M: why did they do such thing this time?
M: near Diaoyu islands
U: but that is Japanese territory
M: not the reason
M: there may have something with USA
U: so the fishing boat was in USA water?
M: Fishermen from Taiwan, the mainland of China have always been fishing there.
M: Japan generally avoided to offend those fishermen.
M: but this time, it’s so different.
U: so this is unusual?
M: there may be something behind it.
M: I don’t know.
U: There must have been a serious violation for the Japanese to react in such a way
M: I don’t know. Japan and China will have a war one day.
U: If I had to choose which side to believe…a democracy or a dictatorship…i would choose to believe the democracy
U: China is not ready for a war
M: maybe not this time.
U: They don’t want a war
M: sure *** ***
U: why such a big deal about a fishing boat captian getting arrested….seems like the Chinese government is just trying to distract the Chinese people from other issues
M: The communist party got power because Japan invaded China and KMT fought with Japan and lost its force.
M: maybe, but it’s a good choice for the government to do so. No country can be a better target
U: I mean China arrests people everyday for nothing more than free speech…and so why is this such a big deal…see…You are distracted
M: If some leader wins a war between China and Japan, it would be a hero of the nation.
M: just as I said, it’s a good choice for this government to collect people’s support.
U: China will never win a war against a first rate military power in our lifetime
M: maybe not now, but you can’t say “never”
U: Chinese made weapons??? Are you serious
U: the chinese made shoes I bought are crap!
M: China isn’t strong now, but you can’t say “never”
M: it’s now.
U: so…why all the war talk
M: America was under the ruling of Britain before.
U: so…and thats a good thing
M: things can change.
M: Before Japan learned everything from China. Then it got stronger than China and invaded China.
M: One day, China can get stronger too.
M: Things wouldn’t stay still.
U: As long as there is a “people’s army” China’s military is hopeless
M: The hatred between Japanese and Chinese can be more serous between Nazi and Jews.
U: Japan has a top notch professional military…China would be no match
U: It would be like a soccer match between boys and men
M: China can wait, but China won’t forget the history.
U: Jeez…If we all dug up something about past history..then there will never be peace
U: Just relax…its just the communist government trying to get more support…its all fake
M: Germany think Nazi as a shame but Japan still worships their “Nazi”. That’s why China can’t forget the history.
U: The captian was probably ordered to get arrested on purpose for this reason alone
M: I don’t know.
U: sometimes…there is a time when you have to sit down and just think…why?
M: We are waiting to see how our government goes to respond. That’s its duty.
U: all I know is…if I go to Japan today and take pictures of a policeman….the policeman would smile. If I went to China and took pictures of a policeman in central Beijing…my camera would be smashed and I would be arrested
M: I don’t like what China looks like now, but not that serious like you say.
M: can you guess what Han han’s opinions are?
U: I’m sure he has a level headed opinion
M: what do you mean by “level headed” , anyway?
U: with an open mind and reasonable thought
M: He said, we don’t own a bit of land under our feet. Even when we buy a house, we only get a lease of land for 70 years.
M: All the land belongs to the government.
M: Those islands belong to the government. too, so let the government. to deal with it.
M: do you think it’s smart?
U: No government has the right to own land…its against nature and God’s will
M: Our government. owns all the land by the name of “country”.
U: The earth wasn’t created so some government can own it
M: that’s why we don’t * this government.
M: It owns everything.
M: by the name of “country”
M: in the name of “country”
M: by the way, “in the name of ” or “by the name of” ? which one is correct?
U: thats why this Island should not be in China’s hands
U: in the name of….but it depends on context
M: those are sarcastic speeches. you should understand it.
U: i always understand sarcasism
M: It shows that some Chinese people don’t want to follow this government’s lead and want to see this government to show its real face.
M: This government tries to make Chinese people furious so it can pretend a “nice” face to Japan. Now, some Chinese people just sit down saying that it’s the government and the military’s duty to deal with it. And the government and the millitary should get it back.
U: that would be very difficult for China to do at this point…Japan’s navy would easily block such action
U: A superb navy Japan has
M: This government always bullshits Chinese people at home. Now it will show what it really is.
U: Only the USA or Britian could match such a navy
M: then we can have a good government and then China will get strong and win the war one day.
M: Japan may attack pearl harbour again with that super navy one day.
U: a war over a small island makes no sense in the 21st century or beyond
M: then USA will need China to help again
U: why would japan want to that?
U: They are a democracy now…and not ruled by a military government like before
M: why did Japan attack Pearl Harbour?
M: It’s because of the military government?
M: no, always because of people
M: why could a military government rule a country?
U: to destroy the American pacific fleet…so there would be no opposition in the Pacific Ocean
M: It’s because of people’s character and other factors.
M: History will repeat if people forget history, which seems a well-known saying
U: But…The aircraft carriers and most battleship were not at pearl harbor at the time of the attack…so America still had a strong navy in the pacific ocean
M: that’s luck for USA. but can’t say “never”
U: and that’s why it is not wise to start a war over some tiny useless island
U: because of the lessons of history
M: why didn’t USA think so when Japan wanted Pearl Harbour?
U: Japan didn’t want pearl harbor
U: they just wanted to destroy the USA navy there
M: Yeah, they didn’t want that harbour but USA still declared that war with Japan.
U: USA had no choice
U: USA was attacked
M: that’s it.
M: now think about Diaoyu islands with the same logic.
U: but there is nothing there that is important
U: Pearl Harbor was a huge navy base
M: As long as Japanese keep those criminals in Yasukuni Shrine and worship them, the peace is temperary. Diaoyu Islands mean something to China.
U: think!!! a war over a fishing boat captian…that’s insane
M: It’s a National humiliation.
M: not now.
U: and a war that China can’t win.
M: one day , not now, and we will win!!
U: you need to turn attention back to freedom of speech on the internet in China and forget about those tiny little islands
U: what will you win?
U: freedom of speech
M: I always put freedom first, but we are talking about Diaoyu Islands now.
U: no…you will have less freedom because the government will be stronger
M: we will have a new government.
M: a good one
M: the one with which China can get strong and win the war.
U: a government that starts a war over a tiny island is not a good government
U: so…possibly a million Chinese will die in a war over a tiny island…and that is good?
M: at that time, we won’t need a war and Japan will kick those criminals out that disgusting Shrine.
U: are you going to fight in the war?
U: it is not much fun
M: I will be too old to be a soldier at that time.
U: no excuses
M: China should get strong first.
M: so not the right time for a war now.
U: let others fight and die
U: never is the right time for war
M: When China get strong enough, the war won’t be needed and Japan will get rid of those criminals from that Shrine.
M: The war is the last choice. Now Chinese government can cut off the relation with Japan.
U: bad economic choice
M: Some Japanese factories etc. poison Chinese workers.
M: We don’t need those factories. kick them out!!
M: Some electronics Japanese factories or companies make Chinese workers get lung cancers.
M: even died of it
M: Our government just like to be blind to it.
M: because they got money from those companies
U: but no Chinese companies have ever done that I’m sure
M: Some Chinese companise are not good either. The working environment for some campanies is toxic.
M: including American companies in China
M: But our government likes to force our people to shut up.
M: because the government can get tax and the officers can get bribes.
M: WE NEED A GOOD GOVERMENT!!
M: that’s all.
U: ok…how much will that cost?
M: We will pay much more to clean our environment if we keep them.
M: where r u? you are lost.let us have another topic.
U: i’m here
U: hi there
