Ishihara “Will Spark Crisis” With China

ishihara-duck-face.jpg

Tokyo’s notorious governor Shintaro Ishihara has been warned by his own nation’s ambassador to China that his plans to buy some of the Senkaku Islands will cause a diplomatic crisis.

In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Japan’s ambassador to China offered Japan’s only official acknowledgement of Ishihara’s plans to buy the islands so far, and stressed the government would do whatever it takes to avoid standing up to China:

“If Mr Ishihara’s plans are acted upon, then it will result in an extremely grave crisis in relations between Japan and China. We cannot allow decades of past effort to be brought to nothing.”

As Ishihara intends Tokyo to buy three of the islands from their current owner in a private transaction, it is not clear what, if anything, the central government can do to stop him.

The main potential obstacle to the purchase, the fact that it appeared he was going to use public funds, evaporated after his antics went viral amongst the Internet right, and he soon received over a billion yen from some 70,000 donors keen on seeing him further annoy China.

However, as the islands would only be privately owned by Tokyo and remain politically part of Okinawa, Ishihara would still not exert any political authority over them, being limited to opening them for visits (the government rents them so it can ban visitors) and perhaps developing them – although this would probably cause more than enough trouble.

    lol what eatshithara is blind to the obvious fact that Japan will cease to be a nation and come under the total dominion of China within the next 50 years. Handing over Japan what be a perfect bargaining chip for U.S. to pay off it's trillions of debt, after all. Just like niggers trade prison bitches to pay off their tab, US will hand over Japan prison style.

    why 300k dollars?

    also, how close to reality are stories that ex-GRU and ex-KGB agents are moonlighting as mafia hitmen?

    Any hints on how you will go about killing this guy? Don't tell me you have access to polonium-210 xD

    A fair bit of surveilance and a silenced sniper rifle would do the trick. Although my personal favorite is poisonous darts (special bullets with cyanide of potassium, used together with sniper rifle, i make them myself)

    $300k would go to buy equipment and materials, fake documents, traveling fees, and the rest i'm keeping as revenue. In russia we have assasination "assignments" worth as little as $20k, that's not nearly enough for taking human life.

    And yeah, we have our share of ex-military gone mafia, but they usually just sitting their ass of behind the desk and utilize their connections to do shadowy business.

    Silenced sniper rifles are a silly assasination weapon. The supressor greatly reduces accuracy at moderate ranges, and more often than not, you only have one shot.

    Oh and by the way, an experienced marksman doesn't need poision. A direct hit is always lethal.

    I'm not even going to go in the improvised munition thing. Anyone who has had to use one would appreciate the value of factory manifacturing.

    You've never used a real gun, haven't you?

    Protip: Don't say yards when you try to sound professional. All military personal and manifactururers use metric units. By extension, everybody who uses weapons as more than a hobby does.
    Protip2: What 12:36 said. Despite their name, silencers are not a noise supression tool. Go watch a youtube video of a real silencer in action. At that range, the mark will be able to pinpoint your location by noise. And so will his armed bodyguards.
    Protip3: At 100 yards, you don't need a scoped weapon. Short-to-mid range rifles are preferable for a number of reasons like being easier to aim and not requring a fixed firing position.
    Protip4: You don't assassinate with guns at short range in metropolian areas. Not unless you plan on leaving the scene without handcuffs and bullet holes.

    a decent silencer on a weapon made for accuracy wont decrease the range by enough to be a problem.

    japan is a country where they rarely if ever need to think snipers are a true threat, and if its a silenced weapon, a true silenced using sub sonic ammunition, you could be less than 100 yards and probably get away with it.

    and as to poison, i would kike that method do, at least if you want them to suffer. get hit, you feel it, you know its not good, and you have to realize you could be in your final moments.

    and talking about how you would do it isnt surprising unless you have your own unique signurtaure way.

    silenced sniper
    poision through darts

    both common methods.

    Anyway the main function of a silencer is to hide the muzzle flash, the gunshot sound is still very loud.

    The notion is all well and good though, I'll have a drink of vodka for that.

    reminds of of the piranha launcher of "despicable me" :p

    if you use poison ammo, just use a blowgun and that's it

    you can even do it in the toilets while no one is watching, but be a master of cosplay for the next steps,

    go out by the big door, done :p

    but talking about poisons there's a bunch of stuff that can make such an old man appear to die from natural causes, much more stealth than a sniper or poison darts if you ask me.. heck you could even induce radiation poisonning :D

    Actually, a 'direct hit' unless you somehow manage to hit the lower back of the scalp, is usually NOT deadly. If you lodge a bullet in the brain, heart or an important artery the guy will still survive with immediate good medical care, which he WILL get in Japan.

    Hey buddy, if you get the chance, I so urge you to erase this man and his policies off the face of the planet. Both my hentai, anime, and manga have been ruined and are getting closer to the lame American animation I hate.

    Make sure you do a good job, because you would be a HERO for putting this man out of commision.

    Not to sound like an idiot or anything...
    But I don't understand why Tokyo purchasing islands which are politically owned by Okinawa, would have any effect on China?
