Off to Battle!

Dearest Internetianz:

I dare say I do not know what has come over me!  I have made the most epic decisions, and you will be the first to know about it.  This summer, I will take the battle to the Japs and the Commie Pinkos!  I am no longer content to lay around Taiyuan watching my peasant opera girls perform solos for/on me.  No my friends, it is time to end this invasion from within and without once and for all.

I leave at once for the battlefront.  Wish me luck, before too many months have passed I will regale you all with tales of victory.  I have no doubt that the campaign will come to a successful end and I will finally make our homeland safe for democracy or whatever other kind of government I decide to install.

To Victory!

    Dear General

    Hanging by the neck for the first installment in the Shanxi Daily and wishing you luck. However, I suspect that you have expended all your precious bodily fluids and this summer offensive will come to nought.

    Brother Yan,
    You performance in 太行山上 was almost as sorry as Zhu De not boning that German chick.

  3. I fear that juicy pants will be scattered to the winds.

    General Yan,

    We are most troubled by the recent reports from you, or more accurately the lack of such reports. We have sent to you literally thousands of tons of military equipment as you requested to support your proposed military attacks upon the Japanese. To this date we have recieved none of the reports you promised us detailing exactly what you used these supply shipments for. Indeed, the activities of your entire force and indeed absolutely anything in Shanxi have been grossly underreported. Which is to say not reported at all by you. And what reports we have recieved through reliable (and not so reliable) third party sources are… troubling.

    As a preconiditon for further aid, the Allies have demanded the following:

    1. The reports you have defaulted on published in full.

    2. An analysis of recent combat operations and loss assessments estimating what damage you have inflicted upon the Japanese and vice versa (and by “damage inflicted upon the Japanese” we do not mean the thousands upon thousands of “collaborators” you have claimed were members of the Jingwei puppet regime which were later identified by the CCP as being in fact their own men. I do not care about who started any particular firefight or who did what, but for future reference: if Mao or any of his men identify any of your claims as being not tied to the Japanese (OR VICE VERSA, MAO) it does not count).

    3. A full OOB detailing the current state of all forces under your command and plans to modernize them.

    4. Myself and my staff, who shall be accompanying you for the forseeable future.

    Please keep in mind that given our current military situation, we cannot afford to throw supplies such as this out to anybody who asks- after all, they might wind their way up into the arsenal of a glorified tinpot thug who has no intention of using them save to consolidate his own power at home (yes Emperor Selassie and Chairmen Chiang, that means you)- and if we do not have indications that they are being used well, we can always move the supplies elsewhere to where HQ believes they shall do more good.

    I hope this shall be as short and pleasant for all parties involved as possible.

    Regards,

    Lt. Col. James London,
    Allied Force HQ Mediterranean,
    Seconded to China-Burma-India Theater HQ

    If you’re out there on the front fighting the japs, I expect that before you’re through with them, the Japanese language will be spoken only in Hell (or in the bedroom). Preferably in the bedroom though.

    當我們看中國的外交,卻發現她很多時會在違背自身價值觀和利益的情況下,向各國妥協。可見中國外交的失敗。

    中共所實行的睦鄰政策,可說是徹底的失敗。中共現在的領導人奉行鄧小平那套所謂的「韜光養晦」政策。但其實,這只是一種逃避挑戰的鴕鳥政策。當今中國所面臨的惡劣國際環境,則決定了這種鴕鳥政策必然失敗。

    在這種鴕鳥政策主導下,中國外交不僅畏首畏尾,更胸無大志,既沒有系統的外交戰略,也沒有長遠的外交目標。這種頭痛醫頭、腳痛醫腳式的外交政策,直接導致中國外交在面對各種挑釁時束手無策,盡顯軟弱之態,面對大好機遇時,也因毫無戰略準備而無所作為。

    對朝鮮對印度對日本甚至是越南,中國都是畏首畏尾,一昧退讓,實行韜光養晦。本來,鄧小平的韜光養晦,是指平時積蓄力量,關鍵時刻果斷出手,是一種積極進取的外交思維。但現在,卻成了一種鴕鳥政策,令人無奈。

    其實,按照中國現在的實力,根本不用如此讓步,中共對東南亞國家,對日本,甚至是越南朝鮮,都讓得太多。完全顯示不到大國風範,畏首畏尾的外交政策,只會令中國人蒙羞!

    至於對印度和越南的外交處理手法,中共簡直令人覺得恥辱。情況就好像當年清政府打贏法國,但仍然賠償法國一樣。令人覺得是絕大的恥辱。

    中國在和日本,越南,俄羅斯,印度等周遍強國的政治經濟往來中,沒有佔到多少便宜,也沒有讓這些列強放棄對中國崛起的偏見和敵視,自身利益不斷被侵占,不能不說中國的外交政策有很大缺陷,這是中國國家佈局計劃和外交政策慘敗的最佳體現。

    中國常常想成為一等一的大國,但他的外交卻事事以懦弱的方式勉強了事,實在不能給人任何強國的風範。
