Japanese Ambassador Attacked in China

Japanese have been shocked to learn that even their own ambassador to China is no longer safe, after his car was attacked in broad daylight and had its flag stolen.

According to the Japanese embassy in Beijing, a Chinese man “attacked” the ambassador’s official car as he travelled in it one afternoon, tearing off its flag and making off with it, leaving the poor car with a bent flagpole.

The attack may have been carefully planned – the man leapt from a car and grabbed the flag when the ambassador’s car was stopped at an intersection with its only avenue of escape obstructed by two other vehicles.

The ambassador and his staff were unharmed, although it transpired he normally travels without any escort and so could presumably have been at some risk.

Japan has lodged a protest with the Chinese government about the matter, and said it will try to avoid having it happen again.

China’s foreign ministry has called the attack “regrettable” and emphasised that it will investigate the incident and guarantees the safety of Japanese residents and enterprises in China (although last time there was any suggestion the islands belonged to Japan it did arrest a few random Japanese for “spying” and threaten to execute them).

Meanwhile, Japan is still insisting it is illegal for its own citizens to set foot on the islands, having just sent Tokyo governor and China hater Shintaro Ishihara notice that it will not allow landings as they “would disturb the tranquillity of the islands,” although it seems unlikely this will stop him.

The aftermath of a group of Chinese nationalists making an illegal landing on the Senkaku islands which neither Hong Kong nor Japanese authorities bothered to stop has seen anti-Japanese mobs riot across a number of Chinese cities, in which “Japanese” property was destroyed and police were attacked:

    Actually, true Chinese culture was already destroyed long before the Culture Revolution.

    -Qing dynasty was actually Mongolian invasion.
    -The colonial era after that brought local warlords each backed by a western nation.
    -Then there's the Japanese invasion, where they actively tried to replace Chinese culture with Japanese by mandating teaching of Japanese instead of Chinese in schools.
    -Following that, there's the bloody civil war, where literacy of any culture declined.

    Cultural revolution was just the last nail in the coffin that wiped out the remaining 1% of what's Chinese.

    Qing Dynasty is from Manchuria. Yuan Dynasty before it is the Mongol one. Qing Dynasty destroyed much of what is original Chinese culture. The Qipao (Cheongsam) is actually a modified Manchurian dress. Original Chinese traditional attire is already lost. Traces of it can be found in ancient paintings, and overseas Chinese community that might still keep it (some chinese community are descendant of escapee from the downfall of Ming Dynasty). Taiwan was colonized by Japan for hundred years so it is not surprising that Japanese culture spread there more than any part of China. Some school in Taiwan even made Japanese lesson compulsory. I think the only thing that is original is the festivals, lunar calendar and Confucian teaching. The rest are copied here and there. The writings is not fully original (Taiwan is still original hard to read Han Dynasty mess) because China adopted Japanese simplification.

    Culture does not know borders. There is no such thing as a national culture. As long as peoples interact, the societies will incorporate each other's traits.

    Nobody is "stealing" anyone's culture. The correct wording is "partial incorporation".

    To bad they can't steal the expertise to manufacture it properly without poisoning someone or having it explode!

    I take it you haven't seen all those "Made in..." labels inside your computer.
    They don't need to steal anything as long as Apple and friends are happy to build their manufacturing plants in the middle of China.
