70% of US: “Dump Japan in Favor of China!”


The US seems ready to dump its useless Japanese lackeys in favour of its much more affordable and numerous new Chinese friends, if polls of the American public are anything to go by.

According to a public opinion survey of American adults undertaken by the Council on Foreign Relations and being gleefully reported by the Chinese press,  70% think that “for American interests relations with China are more important than with Japan.”

Only some 28% thought that America ought to do anything to impede China’s rise, leading many in China to think their rise is so inevitable that even foolhardy Americans dare not oppose them.

Surprisingly, many Japanese seem sympathetic:

“We knew.”

“An unexpectedly sensible set of opinions from them there.”

“Don’t worry, we’ll put up with anything demanded of us!”

“Japan is going to get stuck looking after its old farts now, it’s nothing but a drop-out nation.”

“And how many of those involved with this were Chinese Americans?”

“This is why being the pets of the whites sucks, they have no sense of gratitude.”

“Don’t bash the yanks for this, it’s our fault for being so useless! To them we are like those dirty Koreans are to us. They can’t even tell the difference anyway.”

“Because China is financing all their debt… unlike their loyal Japanese dogs, China has an ace up its sleeve.”

“We have a peaceful society yet over 30,000 of us kill ourselves every year, it’s not surprising nobody likes us.”

“The DPJ government has basically torn up every diplomatic agreement they made with the US, it’s not surprising they think we’re a basket case.”

“America needs China to buy its junk and Chinese slave factories to make its products. However, they’ll never accept China as a communist dictatorship. The worst case is that they’ll try to force a more pliable government into place in China.”

“America has already declined anyway!”

    The Council on Foreign Relations is obviously skewing this to start the placation of the Chinese government. They are going to be mad when they find out we have no intention of paying them back for our debts. We have basically told China; "So long and thanks for all the stuff."

    they don't want those debts paid back. Paying debts on the national level causes monetary contraction, which slows down the economy worldwide, and therefore will hurt china's exports.

    Of course, we can always print more money and let those exporting nations have a taste of their own medicine with 7% + inflation in their average goods.

    Laughable people keep bringing up debt when less than 10% of total US debt is owed to china and more than 50% is owned by American public.

    You need to get a clue. You've no idea how this works.

    Whether that or dollar holding, it's held by a single entity. If released overnight, there'll be a runaway effect. The dollar won't be worth its weight in toilet paper by morning. The dollar is back by "In God We Trust," and trust is a fragile thing.

    China won't ever do such a thing, as it would ruin the world economy in addition to turning US into a third world country.

    And US won't ever default on its debts, as it would have the same effect as what China won't do - breach of trust in the dollar.

    They don't care about the money. They want influence in the international arena. That's done by providing cheap debt to the US, and then threatening to cut it off any time America steps on their toes.

    To be honest, the survey simply said that relations with China were more important, but not exactly what kind of relations or why.

    Let's be honest. The whole world knows China is a threat. I bet the US is just waiting for the chance to "facilitate communications" and "improve relations" by "spreading freedom" to China.

    Japan simply isn't worth invad-errr I mean liberating, so relations with Japan aren't as important.

    Actually, China as an enemy would be rather fortunate and beneficial for the United States. If/when America were to wage such a war and if/when the US won such a war they could ask for reparations that would waver debts, setting balance to zero and fragmenting China into three, possibly five different nations.

    The US can't afford to wage war with China even if they'll win, because China doesn't give a shit about its own people. Even in, say a 1:10 ratio of casualties... kill 30,000 Chinese it'll be quickly forgotten, but if 3,000 Americans are killed they'll cry about it for the next 11 years.

    @16:52 sigh. Don't you know anything? China as an active enemy would be horrible for the US. No more cheap food, including rice and hmm about everything else in an American home besides the house it self, has a made in china label on it. I wouldn't be surprised if the US's war materials come from china.

    Also china as an enemy would mean Russia as an enemy, and everyone knows all these big powers would never directly come into conflict, because everyone has nukes. They would have to let the small countries fight for them, which would be the cold war all over. In the end lives would be lost, money spent, and no everyone comes out of the ordeal with the same borders that they had when it started.

    Well, they have us by the throat, but we have them by the balls while we control the Opium supply.

    Japan has to let a generation or two die before it will find its place in the new millennium. Once their younger generation reaches its inevitable 'do-or-die' moment that many of them are emotionally unprepared for, I anticipate they'll have many protests in the not-so-distant future. I look forward to it.

    I've stated that they're having their sexual revolution before, and I do believe it, and once you claim your sexuality, you can discover who you are. Their revolution is in a false reality though, with the idea of '2D better than 3D' being more than just a fad, so I'm curious how it will grow from there.

    If "by the throat" you happen to be speaking of the American debt they hold, China holds 9.6% of U.S. treasury bills. That's it.

    People and organizations (like banks and the fed) in America hold 69%, and the remaining ~21% is in countries that are allies or non-threatening trade partners.

    So I don't quite see China as the menace some others do. For godsake their first aircraft carrier is a rusted out retired ship from Ukraine.

    Have any of you ever been invited into one of those polls?
    I have. About 20 years ago I got a bunch of questions by mail. Questions about my yearly income, social status, kids, who I voted for last time, and so on. It said in the letter with it, that it was anonymous. But on top of each page was a small 10 digit number.
    What I think went on, is that it was not a poll, but a profiling. And it would be used to feed a database with my profile, so later, when they want to make a poll, they can ask the database for ”random” people who is likely to give the desired answer.
    Paranoid as I am, I made the 10 digits numbers not readable, and send it back with a letter telling them if it was anonymous they had no use for that 10 digit number.
    Here 20 years later I have never since been invited to take part in a poll.

    I am not in the US though. But I for one do like Japan alot.
    No one is perfect, but that should not be an excuse for not trying. ;)

    I also pick Japan over China. I'm working with Japaneses companies and they are far more trustworthy than cheap China ones. From them, I know China strategy is using cheap cost to attract American Companies and slowly steal their technologies. Besides the territory dispute, that's also one of the main reason why Japanese companies are leaving China right now.

    Ofttimes there's not much that can be done about it. There's just not enough "comparable products" manufactured elsewhere.

    So much work has been shipped overseas that even the NSA reports that IF America were to get into a war with China, we would enter into in a crippled state, unable to produce enough textiles & quality of life items to last in a long term war. What few goods could be produced would sell for overinflated costs and the time it'd take to retool & retrofit existing buildings would discourage many from doing so.

    Have any of you lived in China? Just curious. China can be a huge pain in the butt. If you were smart you would side with Japan. Chinese have zero sense of honor or respect. Of course they demand you respect them and honor them but they never return it. If they became the next and only superpower it would most certainly be the worst plague cast upon the earth. They want to be Lao Da in Asia and they hate anyone in Asia who stands in their way. Anyway Chinese only protest when they are told to protest.

    BTW, that poll is BS.
