I am just wondering, I hear that most overseas Chinese love Japan.
I am overseas Chinese, and I SUPPORT JAPAN 99%, because it is democratic ally of USA, which is democratic ally of Singapore, which is democratic ally of Japan.
THREE VS. ONE, WE CAN DO IT, GUYS, TOGETHER, HERE WE GO!
It really depends on why the 2 would go into war. Even within the same country there could be contradictory support. Look at the US, there were widespread protest within against the Vietnam war in the 60’s, the ongoing Iraq war is severely criticized by many American politicians and citizens.
I think it’s incorrect to claim ":most overseas Chinese love Japan.": While many Chinese people, overseas or not, don’t support the CCP, almost none of them would love the country of Japan. The younger generation might like to follow the Japanese culture of anime, music etc. but I don’t believe any of them would feel any love for Japan due to the past recent history between the 2 countries, at most it should be ":not dislike":. Other than pop culture I can’t think of anything that provides a Chinese person a reason to devote his love to Japan.
Everybody here except for two (DL, eihi) have given good answers, I think. I would say all (but I might forget somebody) the Chinese I meet from China do change their opinions about the CCP slowly after they leave China and go to a place where they see the bigger picture. By this I mean they see the way they lived ,what they were told and now see what the world is really like compared to what they were told and thought while at home in China. This does not change their thoughts about family, home in China but it does change their minds about the CCP and what the CCP has told them and done to their home and family. They see first how the CCP has destroyed the home they call China, the air, water and ground. My wife seen this her first 24 hours in the US. She did not want to compare the two nations but she talked of how clear the air was and the trees, it hurt her to see how her life had been. With all this said NO Chinese living in the US (or any other nation) wants to see their home involved in a war but all want their home and families to have the lives they have now outside of the control of the CCP. There is very little good that comes from war and a lot of very bad things come out of war. The Chinese I know would not want war but they want their home to be more like the new homes they have now. They want the CCP control changed, they want the Chinese people to live better, to breath clean air, to have clean water, to be able to say they disagree with the way the government acts without fear of attack during the night, to live in a place where there are no ":black jails":, for the government to support the Constitution of the country, for the same laws that control the people to control the government, the Chinese who have left China want a better China not a destroyed China. I have never talked to any China that left the US went to China and when they returned to the US had anything good to say about the air pollution in any Chinese city. They know now that pollution is not something a country has to have if they are to manufacture, the CCP has lied to them and they know it now. After some time away from China they begin to see the lies they were told by the CCP, nobody has to tell them. A war between China and Japan would be very bad and none of them I know want this but they do want a different China, a China free of the control and destruction brought on by the greed of the CCP. In China the military has sworn to protect the CCP unlike most free nations where the military is sworn to protect the Constitution of the country. They don’t want war but they do want change. A war between China and Japan would have no winner, only losers, death and destruction. The people here who talk about China fighting with other nations have NEVER been in any military conflicts with the deaths of their friends around them. It is not pretty nor glorious.
They tend to be split on the issue, depending on how long they have been a ":refugee": from the PRC. The longer they are away and begin to gain some perspective, then the more they see how evil the CCP-led PRC government really is.
I see DL is spouting lies again about some money she thinks Japan owes China. Here is the truth on that subject… read it and weep, or just stop yapping at your halucinations. OK, Little Doggie?
":Joint Communique of the Government of Japan and the Government of the People’s Republic of China – September 29, 1972":
":5. The Government of the People’s Republic of China declares that in the interest of the friendship between the Chinese and the Japanese peoples, it renounces its demand for war reparation from Japan.":
How do you think the PRC bought its way onto the UN Security Council in 1972, silly one?
I’ll tack this on for good measure:
":Chairman Mao Tse-tung met Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka on September 27. They had an earnest and friendly conversation.":
It was during this conversation that Chariman Mao THANKED the Japanese for the Nanking Massacre, as it 1) destroyed the KMT seat of government, and 2) enabled the CCP forces to enlist a greater number of Chinese who felt it was better to side with the (then) pro-Japanese CCP and wait out the war than to suffer similar consequences.
Hey Dog lover,
Do you know that a lot of the Chinese industrial powerplants were built by Toshiba? Does it mean that you boycott Japanese products by not using electricity in China? Maybe to boycott Japanese products you should turn off your computer and not bother us with your propaganda and drivel…
What about the numerous water treatment plants built by Japanese companies? Do you use water from a well instead? If so, I can safely say that you smell….
they do not think that japan is a democratic nation
being democratic does not make japan become a sane nation willing to face with their past history like the Germany.
japan invasion – happen in whole asean region where million of chinese are brutally killed and raped without any reason.
chinese would support china over japan.
japan still refused to admit their past war crime.
abe denied invasion ,comfort women.
I am not asian, i am half western and half middle eastern, i cannot stand the communist murdering, infidel,and i am christian, but i can tell you this, my jewish and muslim brothers also cannot stand the murderous , greedy, dishonest,thieving infidels communist china, therefore,Japans sins being forgiven, but not forgotten, my vote supports Japan, against its EVIL neighbour, communist China.God will punish them, thats for sure and its already happening, one natural disaster after another,one plague after another, He will pay them back for the murder of the innocents of which they are guilty of, by the millions, and i think it will be the Holy land, where they will get their Judgement.God Bless the poor chinese, who have been presecuted, and murdered, by this murderous government.As i said prior it will be the arabs,of the middle east,that will teach them a lesson they will never forget.
Here are Gods 10 commandments which all 3 of the Abrahamic religions follow and Communist China has broken every one of them
ONE: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’
TWO: ‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image–any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.’
THREE: ‘You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.’
FOUR: ‘Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.’
FIVE: ‘Honor your father and your mother.’
SIX: ‘You shall not murder.’
SEVEN: ‘You shall not commit adultery.’
EIGHT: ‘You shall not steal.’
NINE: ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.’
TEN: ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s house: you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.’
99.99% of Chinese ethnicity raised outside of CCP China hate the corrupted dictatorship, they hope China could soon change to a democratic and responsible country as the behaviors of the current regime bring shame to their ancestry.
That said no one wants to see a war between China and Japan, it’s going to bring complete destruction to the entire East Asia and a collapse of the world’s economy.
Many of my young Chinese friends from outside of Mainland China admire Japanese cultures, however they’re still reserved and skepticism at imperial Japan’s past deeds done on China, Asia and the world. They also feel it’s not worth for the 2 big Asian countries to go to war just because of a few remote bare rocks.
Similar to Tibetans and Xinjiangers, Hongkongers are increasingly fed up of the loads of ruthless and greedy Mainlanders deliberately dumped onto HK by CCP.
