Which Gaijin country do the Japanese hate the least?
Germany, I guess.
I'd imagine Germany.
Krauts, Definitely Krauts.
One in Europe or Australia
anything from europe
You should probably ask /int/.
In order of love I'd say america, germany, britain. Only reason I put america ahead of germany is because I remember seeing a popularity poll of various countries and their opinion on america, and the country who thought the best of america was japan. They liked america more than it liked itself.
They love Italy. When I visited Italy a lot of signs and stores had Italian, English and Japanese written on them.
France or Germany, probably.
That was probably during the tsunami relief.
It's probably settled back in its average, whatever that may be.
German here. USA. they love USA.
Isn't the relationship with Australia shaky as fuck because of whaling in Australian waters or some shitt?
The US have saved them from 50 years of communism. English is the best spoken foreign language in Japan as well as anywhere else in the world. American culture influenced Japan more than any other since WW2.
Now figure out yourselves who they like most. And by like I mean their girls getting wet for, not some crusty old men being bitter about or not.
Why is Japan the only county that doesn't completely hate our guts?
Are Asian countries included as Gaijin countries?
Well the US did actually help rebuild Japan after ww2 even though the US were the ones who dropped the bombs.
Some Nordic country or Finland i guess.
Nobody hates them.
by bombing them you saved them from russian communism. without your military bases they would have been overrun by chinese.
also your omnipresence has created a stockholm syndrome.
>I don't know about the rape of Nanking, or any of the huge historical baggage between the two countries
Who knows though?
Because you guys actually helped rebuild Japan and not steal all it's natural resources
It's definitely America. Just look at anime. It's more reverse weeaboo than /a/ is weeaboo.
France or Germany. There's actually a term for the disillusionment that the Japanese feel upon coming to France and realizing its not their dreamland, its a really shitty place to live, "Paris Syndrome".
I wouldn't conflate Japan having the highest foreign regard of the United States with Japan loving the United States.
If on average people give you 2 points out of 10, and one dude gives you 3. You don't ask yourself why that dude who gave you 3 points wants to suck your cock.
>Didn't read about the clusterfuck of occupation of japan.
Japs are forced to love murrikan dick.
I'd say the US or the UK. I hear British culture is surprisingly popular there.
Their relationship with America is more of a Stockholm syndrome type.
I really didn't think that the Japanese cared for Americans at all. At the very least, Okinawans hate Americans because our military is obnoxious as fuck, and there are many heavily publicized cases of solders raping Japanese civilians.
This. They freaking love (or think they love) Germany. But I'm surprised no one has mentioned Italy yet, they like Italy too.
By the way how is this anime related?
Only because of Hollywood and famous actors a from there though.
like half of /a/ is not american, though I do agree that it's either Germany or US
>also your omnipresence has created a stockholm syndrome.
Suddenly I see America as a genderswapped Yuno.
Cool anime thread.
well, that is not exclusive for japanese only. a lot of lib-tarded women think of paris as a romantic, socialist paradise and discover upon arrival that having 30 percent black population and an equal muslim one turns every city into a shithole.
1/3 at best. Canadians are just Americans in denial.
They hate everyone besides their allies.
>At the very least, Okinawans hate Americans because our military is obnoxious as fuck, and there are many heavily publicized cases of solders raping Japanese civilians
They're also annoyed because of all the Ospreys and military base stuff, though really it's protecting them from Best Korea and China, should they throw the first stone.
Also the Murricans brought in fast food, it caught on, and now the Okinawans don't live as long as they used to.
Must be New Zealand
nobody hates New Zealand
there was a chart, around 50% was US and the other 50 were all other countries, with I think Mexico in 2nd place.
best gaijins: krauts,frogs and hues
worse gaijins: burgers, shitposters, chinks, gooks
Actually it was from before the tsunami n all that. I think it was from like 2009 or something. It may have changed since then, but shit I don't know.
American living in Japan here. They don't hate America, but they target Americans for racial discrimination the most.
Unless it's a country that plays rugby
Yeah? I think it's a pretty bad place to live, besides the main island of course.
why does japan hate american culture while love america
Thats because you are irrelevant
The US military is so fucktarded. We should just hand those shitheads over to the Jap courts everytime something happens. Hell, Japanese law barely punishes criminals anyways.
Er, actually, that's more caused by the fact people in Paris are complete and utter asshats.
I'm not sure if you've ever been there, but going to Paris was a dawning point of realization that some stereotypes of the French -are- true. I've never been in such a hostile and stuck-up city before in my life. Like imagine going to a restaurant and ordering a meal, and when the waiter returns with your change he literally throws it down on the table.
It's a pretty city but, Christ, the people there awful. By contrast London looks like it was cobbled together by someone whose idea of architecture was formulated by intense study of the Winchester mansion, while the people there are friendly and helpful as fuck.
This thread is pointless as Japanese dont even know a thing about foreign countries, so they hate things made up in their head.
Have you never noticed that they draw Americans as blonde and blue-eyed in their animes? When I was in the US (Seattle) less than 5% of the population had these features.
Just be sure to wrap your arm around your nip girlfriend, and smile at them whenever they get all racey.
>They like Italy
Nobody likes Italy. Not even the Italians like Italy.
U.S stole Japan's independency.
Italy and Germany.
I think it's the other way around.
I've been to several regions of France, and even coming in with low expectations, I still wasn't very pleased. Paris is definitely deserving of special mention though. London is alright, I like rainy weather though.
Japanese still have the WWII mentality that the world was made for Japan, and every other culture is equivalent to dogs.
>their idea of Italy
Italy and German.
For some reason they love us pasta eater, I can't fucking fantom why
well maybe they shouldn't have attacked Pearl Harbor then.
Actually, most people on 4chan hate Sweden and Swedes.
That said, Japs do love Finland for some reason. I suppose they can relate to Finland, lives in the shadow of a large empire, survives on electronics exports and has top tier education.
I don't think that's it. I think it's because Japan kind of lives in this cultural bubble compared to rest of the world. While they do have had a lot of cultural influence from the west (America being the most obvious) they still just kind of shut themselves out from the what the rest of the world thinks. What I'm trying say is before the war on terror the international opinion of the US was pretty damn high. But after shit like Guantanamo Bay, the Invasion of Iraq, and the general foreign policy of fuck everyone who's not us the world has come to despise us. Japan on the other hand holds a relatively Pre-War on Terror view of America because of their isolation.
>Not even the Italians like Italy.
what is this?
i thought they were britfags?
I do, or at least I hate the hunman invaders who occupied New Zealand and slaughtered all the endemic wild life only 700 years ago.
>Hell, Japanese law barely punishes criminals anyways.
I hear their prison food is absolutely god-tier. Really comfortable jail cells too, if the photos I've seen are anything to go by.
>Have you never noticed that they draw Americans as blonde and blue-eyed in their animus?
That's cause they have to make them look different from the Japanese characters. See, everyone having black hair would be boring (though it's accurate), so some people will have different shades of brown (or red, blue, etc). How can they represent a foreigner, then? S/he'll have to be blonde, because THAT can never be explained away as natural Japanese hair color.
They like the food a lot.
How do they feel about Canuckistan? Are we just Americans+?
Japan hates everything america except america itself
I have no idea why though
If you can count Asian countries as Gaijin countries, I think the answer is definitely from Asian countries, not europe or Australia or America.
>mfw I'm German
Buddy, why do you dislike Canadians exactly? Did we do something to you?
>I hear their prison food is absolutely god-tier. Really comfortable jail cells too
That's because unlike in America, countries like Japan and Norway base their prisons on the idea of rehabilitation rather than punishment.
you were just too young to experience cold war and later conflicts in yugoslavia.
there are plenty of people who have always hated the US.
You haven't been paying attention to politics in Italy recently have you? A joke I've heard is that Berlusconi is Italian for 'asshole'.
They've got a serious problem with the mob, and their government is so corrupt and the people are so disillusioned that in recent elections a joke party formed by a comedian got over a third of the votes cast.
Don't call me buddy, guy.
This. I remember Japanese people being everywhere at tourist stops in Italy. I specifically remember being at a store and a japanese woman picking up a bag of heart-shaped pasta and saying "Kawaii". Haha.
yeah but they don't have an abnormal amount of niggers and spics.
They like Colombia too, but no one here gives jackshit about the third world anyway.
Why so tsun, anons
Maybe if Italy wasn't a 3rd world shit hole more people would like it.
they like polish people too
Germany, France, UK, USA
>Nobody likes Italy. Not even the Italians like Italy.
Leave them be, it's an American/Canadian thing.
Finally someone gets it.
>I hear their prison food is absolutely god-tier. Really comfortable jail cells too
I guess if all else fails in life, I can go break a window in Japan and have a nice hot meal three times a day in a padded cell
Don't call me guy, pal.
At least it looks like your Government got a bit of a wakeup call with the number of votes that joke party had received.
Not judgemental here, I'm honestly curious. There seems to be a portion of the US that just hates us- I've only personally heard that sort of thing from America, whereas most other western nations seem to like us or not care.
Everybody loves Italy.
But everybody, Italians included, hates Italians.
And you can't blame anybody for that.
Don't call me pal, friend.
Why do you think so?
>The eyes on that image should be reversed, Germany fucked us countless times
Nice /int/ thread
It's a rather pleasant one, for a change
Don't call me.
Nobody in the US hates Canadians, we'll just make fun of you for being our hat.
America gave Japan it's most popular sport.
Japan also has something stupid like a 99% conviction rate. Even if you didn't do it , you still did it. They also have tactics of leaving you alone in a room for days on end until you confess just so they'll let you out of the room.
Certain companies over there have similar rooms for employees they don't want to fire but want to get rid of, they'll assign them to an empty room for weeks on end until the person gets bored and quits.
You fucked it up.
Maybe it was because on my trip I spent time in Paris first before spending time in London.
But I thought the people in London were really nice and outgoing.
OP, where are you from? English obviously isn't your first language.
I'm not your friend, chum.
I'm not your chum, guy.
>America gave Japan it's most popular sport.
I dunno man, baseball used to be their national sport too but these days it's more about soccer.
>inb4 /sp/ shitting on soccer
As the first post, I hope you were just joking.
>, they'll assign them to an empty room for weeks on end
I like being in a room alone. I grew up in a large family in a tiny house, so any amount of time alone was a luxury.
We like to be tsun with you Canada. Nobody really hates you.
I don't even distinguish Canadians from Americans anyways, whenever you guys drop by.
Generally though, I just don't give a fuck whoever is in America.
Granted, the distinction between country and people is a little hazy for me, so you might be saying something like Italy has some beautiful cities. And they do.
>they'll assign them to an empty room for weeks on end until the person gets bored and quits
That sounds sweet though.
If I got my pay for just sitting in an empty room doing nothing for 8 hours I'd be real happy.
Don't forget the trains.
Godverdomme jullie treinen zijn waardeloos.
But I guess Japan likes clumsy moe.
You probably had something to do.
I'd say it's 6 of one half dozen of the other remember that 50,000 pack into Koshien stadium and 90%~ of all TVs in Japan tune in to watch the HIGH SCHOOL baseball finals. Japan also has a growing American Football league.
You underestimate how quickly youd go nuts of having NOTHING to occupy your time.
Same. Then again, I might get antsy about all the anime I could be watching during that time.
What do Canadians think of the west coast of the US?
Most people where I live adore Canadians. Mostly because the Canadian tourists we tend to get are much more polite than those of other countries.
You can always watch anime in your head.
It's clearly Germany, followed closely by the US, but the US is too directly involved in politics with Japan to ever be first amongst them except after we do something they like.
I just don't understand it. Some Americans are genuinely mean to Canadians for super arbitrary things. We're like the one country who knows that you aren't actually fat and stupid.
Merrikun, stop teasing me.
>I'd say it's 6 of one half dozen of the other remember that 50,000 pack into Koshien stadium
Thay do seem to like or even love us dutch.
Declaring "Orandajin desu." works small wonders.
Well to be fair,
To hate something, first one must realize that it exists
This is a crowd for a High School baseball game.
Im not your guy amigo
>growing American Football league.
This means a growing number of cheerleaders.
Just saying, i'm actually italian.
>Japan barely punishes criminals
Japan is the only civilized country after the US that still has the death-penalty. they even still hang people
>You underestimate how quickly youd go nuts of having NOTHING to occupy your time.
I know for a fact that I can sit still doing nothing but thinking for 4 hours. I think I could manage double that.
A joke I've heard before is that Heaven has the British in charge of conversation, the Germans in charge of the schedule, the Italians in charge of entertainment, and the French in charge of cooking.
Hell has French in charge of conversation, the Italians in charge of the schedule, the Germans in charge of entertainment, and the British in charge of cooking.
>Japan is the only civilized country after the US that still has the death-penalty
But it takes them literally ten years to actually kill the death row faggots. Endless trials and media coverage.
>they even still hang people
Didn't know about this, source?
>Some Americans are genuinely mean to Canadians for super arbitrary things.
Sounds like assholes, I wouldn't like those guy either.
Everyone knows the best place to discuss a topic on 4chan is outside of the board where that topic is supposed to be discussed.
I have never encountered a single person who dislikes canada, let alone hates it. Everyone just regards canada as america's hat, and it's citizens as bassically-americans-so-who-really-cares.
>not leading a cute fit jap on the mountains in Switzerland and take her virginity afterwards.
I bet HS Baseball players get tons of pussy.
For weeks on end?
I mean I guess you could stay up all night and get shit faced come in hung over and just sleep in your isolation room. But they might start doing other things to get you to quit.
Hell some American states still let people choose hanging if they want.
>nobody hates New Zealand
I guess you probably have a better idea on the socio-economic problems going on in Italy then. I'll shut up now.
The sole exceptions being weapons (/k/) and anime.
>When I was in the US (Seattle) less than 5% of the population had these features.
Go to rural Wisconsin or Minnesota and it will be over half. The US is not ethnically homogenous.
The USA and Japan are currently the only countries that hate other countries for no reason.
that's only 50% true..........
That's a funny way to spell "China and Corea"
>just sleep in your isolation room
Oh I took for granted that the room was under surveillance. If it ain't I can browse the web, watch movies and read books on my phone.
I think they have political reasons.
>for no reason
>The hills are alive! With the sound of Ehhhhhh, *pant* EEEEIIIIIIhhh *pant*
That's a funny way to spell Khina
"The only glimmer of his former light comes in the universal language of two admiring teenage girls, their hair and makeup immaculate, trying to get his attention through the fence. They know what he used to be and might still become, but the grim-faced object of their affection never looks their way. Entering the ninth inning, Saibi is losing 5-3. The Kyoto-Gaidai West players are shouting joyously in their dugout, and Anraku looks far from the tallest boy on the field."
"Then his manager, Joko, makes some vague, almost invisible gesture, and Anraku releases his customary acceptance of command -- a chest-thumping shout that starts deep in his gut -- bowing to his manager before he sprints to the mound.
And while this might sound like mythmaking, like some hinterland baseball legend that's told by scouts to their children to explain why they are never home, this is a true account of what happens next:
The entire field goes silent. Not quiet. Quiet is not a strong enough word to describe this instant temple. It goes dead silent. What had been a consistent, heavy chatter just stops. Anraku's teammates, the opposing players in their dugout, the umpires, the mothers and fathers and tea-brewing booster club up on the hill -- nobody says a word. Nobody claps or chants or boos. An opposing player noiselessly pulls out a radar gun, but nobody else moves. Even the two girls, gripped tight against the rightfield fence, stop their lovesick parade."
Probably. But only the stars. That article is a fantastic read, very well written.
America doesn't hate countries for no reason. The only countries we really hate are middle east countries, and let's be honest, who DOESN'T hate those countries?
Italy and Germany because off wwII.
Switzerland because of that heidi anime.
Maybe also possibly Brittain because the jspts thinks it's a cute little paradise filled with teaparties and gentleman and the Netherlands if anybody there remembers the deshima islanc.
>Go to rural Wisconsin or Minnesota
bullshit. the majority of your whites is not from nordic or slavic countries, but western and southern europe
They even hate each other.
If Japan hadn't commenced the War, they would have suffered from poverty and starvation.
Because U.S had stopped petroleum export to Japan.
Personally, I love going to the west coast.
Something about Washington, Nevada and California always has me coming back.
Also, don't know if this applies to all Canadian tourists, but people can tell I'm Canadian cause of my accent.
>and let's be honest, who DOESN'T hate those countries?
Probably most non-Americans.
When Japanese bitch about *gaijin*, they are referring to Chinese and Koreans 90 percent of the time.
Just a tip.
Vancouver here, I take annual trips through Oregon to California. Portland try's too hard, but they're still fun. LA is crazy. The weather is nice, the air is bad, the women aren't great, Mexicans are total bros, you need more trees, you've got amazing shops, good white people food, bad eastern food, bad beer, amazing spirits, amazingly committed populace, horrible- HORRIBLE infrastructure. Holy shit are your roads ever bad, imperial gives me hemmorages, you've got way more churches per capita than us, you know how to party, and your money isn't pretty enough. I like you.
Pretty sure the US has a history of a huge surge of German immigrants in the middle of the country.
Generally don't give a fuck though, it's not my glorious NW.
And sheep. Sheep hate New Zealand.
They're neutral as fuck with everyone.
I dunno, I'd say most countries hate arab countries. I know several europeans and they all despise muslims.
China has some absolutely absurd Nationalism going on within that country, and if we're going to talk about racism and xenophobia China makes the United States look like a country of Civil Right promulgators.
Oh come on, ALL countries hate each other for political reasons. And granted China+Corea have that historical beef with Japan, but what about their attitude towards the other Asian countries? They look down on pretty much everyone. And then China and US are at loggerheads for the stupidest reasons.

The Netherlands, even their depressed imperial princess, who normaly never leaves the palace, came to see the crowning of our king in amsterdam.
It's only after that 9/11 shit.
Before that nobody gave a shit about middle eastern countries.
People hate those countries the most because the media tells them to.
W-what about us Washingtonians?
Also, I have conniptions about the infrastructure in the United States, that shit is embarrassing.
They like the UK and Germany best.
USA is well liked but loses some points because of manners, while UK and Germans are always very very polite.
Hail pasty skin brother!
What country does america hate for no reason? There's always a reason, and generally it's "they're dirty fucking terrorists" but it's still a reason.
Swede here, we hate them despite the media telling us to love them.
I know the Japanese liked the British punk vibe a lot.
Sure, but I'd say their reasons are pretty justified. They were, after all, invaded and victims of pretty gruesome war crimes.
Just think of how butthurt America is about Pearl Harbour even today, but with literally 100 times more casualties.
I am German you faggot. Germans are nowhere near being Hitlers dream aryans and never were. The most blondes with blue eyes you will find here are ethnically from the borders to Denmark and Poland.
I am so sick of you people adopting that Hitler bullshit your own grandfathers died to protect you from.
Wales, nobody even knows about Wales.
reader your post again and you will see why other countries aren't huge fans of america.
For now. But once July 5th rolls around I can change that...
All focus on Sunday right now though...
/a/ - Japan General
Not who you're responding to, I'd say the only thing about the United States is that depending on the state, the views of the populace can change dramatically.
Like the biblical lands in the deepest, darkest, depths of the United States are not the most rational.
>Pretty sure the US has a history of a huge surge of German immigrants in the middle of the country.
There is a huge amount of Norweigian and German cultural influence in the northern midwest in particular. For some reason the nordic immigrants to america thought it was a good idea to leave a frozen wasteland to settle in a different frozen wasteland.
Waahhh, nobody gives a fuck.
Can I get my grandpa's bicycle back?
Yeah but the sentiment is shared by most other first world nations. Maybe not on an official level, but most european countries hate muslims because muslims ruin their countries. Our mutual hatred of muslims isn't why other countries dislike america.
Cuba. Serbia. Venezuela. Iran.
I think you guys underestimate race. When push comes to shove Japan will choose China over Germany or Italy or whatever the fuck, you can bet on it. If you guys think Japan raped Nanjing because Japan hated China or some shit you're an idiot.

you're an idiot if you think japanese treat their prisoners with any sense of justice. jury's in japan are a recent phenominon.
America doesn't hate other countries, they just love to exploit them.
That's one sided, mostly just a bunch of retard Australian hippies with the rest being Australians having the true blue attitude of "Oi fuck off ya cunts, get your own fucking whales."
Most European immigrants to America were Germans, Italians, Irish, or English. Historically the number of Eastern European immigrants were small compared to Western Europeans.
Japan just likes rape.
This is my day time. I got off work at 11pm.
Americans don't hate cuba, serbia, or venezuela. At most they know of those places as shitholes that badass special forces guys go to. There's no reason to hate those countries. And Iran is an arabic country, more than just americans hate muslims.
>Holy shit are your roads ever bad
Bush cut all the taxes on rich people now we can't afford to build roads.
Yeah, but you don't see Japan bringing up Hiroshima every other line when they're talking to Murrica. Or Murrica with Pearl Harbor. Or Germany to the Brits, for Dresden…
And Corea is fucking crazy. Japanese friend of mine was told off by one when he was visiting their country; apparently he passed a monument that marked the place where Hideyoshi landed in the 16th century to invade and enslave Koreans. I mean, come on
You are really wrong here. THe complete opposite is true: other nations love you officially because they depend on your mercy not to invade them, while their citizens despise you like vermin.
I think they only like your language a lot.
I lived in Nevada and it was a libertarian wet dream. They had only just passed laws against smoking in grocery stores and texting while driving a few months after I moved in. Believe me, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. That being said, fuck Nevada. Aside from the meth houses, it's just a whole lot of nothing.
We never win anything big anon, we sometimes get close to it, but it nearly never happens.
Why give into hope?
meth houses, reno, and Vegas ftfy.
What's that got to do with anything? We were talking about america hating countries for no reason, not other countries hating america. Sounds to me like you just want to throw insults at america, since your statement has zero relevance otherwise.
You misunderstood me. Eastern Europeans and Irish are more white than us Germans. Only Nordics are even whiter.
>while UK and Germans are always very very polite
By Japanese standards pretty much any European acting naturally will seem rude.
Because without this all I have to look forward to for the next 7 months is another season of the Mariners.
Don't forget Australia.
I think you underestimate the bile and hatred those Asian countries have for each other.
Tibet wasn't populated by Caucasians, /a/non, and the ongoing feud between China, Korea, and Japan over the East China sea and the Senkaku islands isn't because they're all tsundere for one another.
Goddamnit Japan, you need to start having more sex, or anime & manga might actually disappear, and I need my fix.
The Mojave at night is wonderful, shame I didn't have a telescope.
I wish I had a reasonable excuse, I just have insomnia.
Japanese were also raped by Chinese in the war, though.
anime and manga are partially the reason that they AREN'T having sex.
And do you know where your daughter is?
Yeah, Americans are usually louder than Europeans, they don't like that.
The islands dispute is a fucking joke. You know why it flares up every now and then in the news? Because elections are coming up in Korea or China and/or their people get frustrated with the government over other national issues. Every time, the government brings up the islands to redirect the public's rage to the nips. Every time, it works like a charm. So it goes.
Lel, These were my normal hours before i got a job. Now They're just acceptable hours.
I think it's because many Japanese still deny the atrocities they did during the war. You don't see Americans denying the atomic bombings, or Brits denying the bombing of Dresden.
Reno is big, but unless you're a high-roller or a student, there's no reason to be there unless you're picking someone up from the airport.
Vegas is considered to be part of Arizona by everyone-not-in-Vegas. (It actually used to be Arizona but the gubmint said Arizona couldn't handle their shit, so they gave it to Nevada. The rest of the state was butt-mad about that, but it brings in lots of casino money, so whatever.)
Are you doing this on purpose? Or is this a legitimate alternative spelling in some languages for 'Korea'?
Japan is the only country smart enough to realize that the only way to save the earth is by self-extinction of the human race.
What's the general consensus on French Canadians? Do both Canada and France hate them?
>The islands dispute is a fucking joke
That's true, and yet with Japan being a US military protectorate it could very well spark WWIII.
>You don't see Americans denying the atomic bombings, or Brits denying the bombing of Dresden.
Not sure if serious… Murrica has tried to host presentations or museum exhibits of what happened at the A-bomb ground zeroes in the past, and those got cancelled because the vets protested en masse. As for Dresden, you might get a passing mention in the Brits' textbooks about incendiaries reducing the city to ashes, but you never hear about what it actually did to the people living in it. If it wasn't for Kurt Vonnegut, we probably still wouldn't know.
They don't deney it, they just don't talk about it because of shamefur dispray.
Border disputes are geopolitical posturing. They express "hate" for each other because it's the only politically tenable animosity to express. Their actual hatred, for the foreigners, is hidden because nobody wants to start a race war.
China and Japan and Korea have a lot of beef with each other but it is sibling rivalry. If you take it too seriously then you are hopelessly naive and brainwashed by the conflict loving media.
Remember Japan invaded C/K because it needed their resources to throw off the global western empires, not because it "hates" C/K.
But really, how does Canada look to Japan? I'm the Vanbro and I'm looking to visit while I still look young enough to hit on schoolgirls and only look moderately creepy.
I'm glad Ichiro left us, we didn't deserve him.
Although I hear his wife liked living here, and why not, we got 4 seasons, and a weaboo district in the heart of our city.
Nobody cares about the atrocities of the war, all the people that were involved in said attrocities are now dead. It's time to move on.
French Canadians are pretty bad
Thankfully for them Natives are 5000% worse.
Get over here, my brother of African descent.
Not talking about the gritty details at every opportunity isn't the same as denying it. No one denies these things happened, we just don't like to talk about the gritty reality of what happened because it's uncomfortable. And we know it's uncomfortable, we acknowledge that by not going into detail.
The only people who like muzzies are these kind of people.
A nasty conundrum I admit.
Still, they need to keep making the stuff.
>Remember Japan invaded C/K because it needed their resources to throw off the global western empires, not because it "hates" C/K
Look mate, that may have been true back then. But the hatred now is a hell of a lot more worse than "sibling rivalry". The hate makes absolutely no sense, it's insane and disturbing and isn't going anywhere for a while yet. And it defies logic, it oversteps the usual geopolitical posturing. What you've said may have been the basis, but it has long since evolved from that.
French Canadians are fine (they're more like Americans who speak French than anglophone Canadians), Québécois are cunts. Know the difference.
>The islands dispute is a fucking joke
The Islands were uncontested territory of Japan's until the 1970s, when it was discovered that there's signs of oil there.
I agree in part with what you're saying though, that China is stirring up this shit over expanding its territory in the East China sea and the Senkaku islands probably in part to distract the citizens from the boiling domestic problems they have.
Calling that a 'fucking joke' though when it's literally China expanding its borders through threat of force is bizarre to me.
Korea: Japan repeatedly invaded them, thousands of historical feud, annexed in world war 2 which is relatively recent
China: Repeating fights in past 200 years, got destroyed by Japanese in world war 2
Rest of Asia: same
While China did lead and influence Asia the most in past, you can note that japs were quick to adapt and embrace the gaijin tech and gave them massive advantage early on which like any sensibl country would do, would take advantage of it and get some money out of surrounding countries
You need to applaud their ability to accept as most Asian countries were and are conservative and xenophobic
Also this mentality does not exclude the Japanese. Asians tend to hold on to the past and shit. Doesn't help that they didn't go with German way of apologizing to everything that exist on earth and instead denied it making it worse
You think far too ideally. You don't while out thousands o years of hate and relatively recent conflicts just because it it will benefit their "race". If anything Asians will wide with one that offers more advantage or in case of eastern asia, China and Korea, non-japs
Lol. Fuck Dresden and fuck Hiroshima. This scum tried to wipe out and enslave slavs and chinese. They both had it coming from miles away.
If I had been in Stalins position I would have sterilized all Germans for their atrocities.
He didn't "leave" we traded him so he could be on a contender for the last 2 or 3 years of his career.
It still hurts though.
Just give those islands to the philipines or some other shit country.
Oh boy here we go
Do you know that Japan banned Korean from being spoken in motherfucking Korea? What kind of friendly occupation force is that and why are you so delusional?
Japan wanted Asia for Japan when they claimed "Asia for Asians", much the same way China wants Asia for China.
This. They need it more.
Slavs dont matter though
>yfw Japan gives them to Taiwan for maximum Chinese butthurt
It's fucking embarrassing, the pothole is basically the state animal of california at this point
Japan didn't invade Korea. They were just about to bankrupt, so Japan helped Korea about money issue and absorbed it.
Butthurt korean detected
I thought Asian countries assimilating type conquering was common. China did it all the damned time(and so we can those butthurt tribes on news all the damn time)
I-It's not like we want you to like us or anything.
And raped their woman untill they became infertile.
Autocorrect at work
My /hist/ is a bit rusty, but didn't Japan help Korea restructure their society? IIRC Korean government and everything was a mess before Japan came in. Of course, Japan then tried to absorb Korea and make it part of its own, so that may not have been out of kindness...
>Japan: "Fuck you China, you can't have those islands."
>China: "Fuck you Japan, they're ours
>Japan: "No, we just decided to give them to the Philippines, bitch.
It's so insane that it jus- No, no wait. It may just be insane.
They only like amrrica because mcd fries
Now this would be hilarious.
>que immediate invasion of Taiwan
Chinese and Koreans siding with Japanese?
They would side with anyone over japs. Their butthurt is very present and they have been enemies for quiet while
Put it this way - If one day USA fucked itself up and everyone else banded together to conquer it and 'restructure' it, it won't matter whether or not it was an actual improvement. They'd remain butthurt for centuries, because you fucking invaded their country. People like their independence, that's why they founded the country in the first place.
This is what I mean by naive. It's easy to get distracted by faddish political ploys like Senkaku and miss the forest for the trees. China has no interest in fighting Japan and Japan knows it. There was a brief moment in time when small Japan could take all of China but that moment has passed.
China is not interested in Japan nor does it see Japan as an adversary. Its goal is to replace America / Western civilization.
Don't be confused, this is a struggle between civilizations. Orwell knows what's up.
>We have always been at war with Eastasia
All Europeans who ever played multiplayer online games on European servers and are not Nordics despise Nordics.
It seems like anime always portrays America as really cocky, which I don't think is right. Speaking as an outsider, I like the idea of the US as a well meaning kid in the sandbox with glandular problems who forgets that the other kids are smaller than him when they play.
Japan restructured Korea and partly industrialized it to provide farming land so it can supply Japanese troops while doing the usual Asian style conquering practice of whiping out nationality and culture
You know, the Chinese assimilation method that worked so well over course of history
What if they gave it to the Americans, by seducing oil thirsty companies to pressure America to accept them?
I kinda want to see how mad China's face would be then.
There are better ways to invade a country and change it. You just let immigrants in. Look at france.
The point I'm making is that saying all the Asian countries will gang up with China against the west is absurd.
Especially when it's more likely that Korea and Japan will ask the west for help and protection from an increasingly antagonistic China desperately stirs up external conflict to relieve pressure on the rising domestic and internal problems they have. Why do you think they feed their civilians such a steady diet of Nationalism and bullshit anyway?
Whose parents are Jews and corporations and also fat and uninteningly bullying everyone
If they were raped and became fertiled, why did Korea's population increase so highly during Japan's govern?
Also, Americans caused hentai censorship
Better yet, give it to Israel just for shits and giggles. It would be the biggest international trolling act in human history.
There's a difference between changing a country from inside and outside. Letting immigrants in requires the people in the country to allow it.
> I assure it
And banned them from speaking their native language
It's like I'm on /int/ again with Japanese and Korean proxies shitposting all done by a lone bored faggot
I got a picture of the big, chubby kid in the playground, being egged on by the small goblin-like jewish kid to take everyone's lunch money.
>China has no interest in fighting Japan and Japan knows it
>China does not see Japan as an adversary
Sure, and that's why PACs and Ospreys and US bases are hanging out on Japanese Hawaii. China may not consider Japan as a direct opponent, but you can bet your ass it will crush it with great pleasure if given the chance. You said it wants to replace America? Of course it does, and the first step is to downplay its allies. If there's a war, the downplay would be upped to missiles.
So long Sweden and GB you wont be missed kek. That whole queen thing was cool for a little while
Oh god it's perfect
Why can't we have a /hist/ board
>Better yet, give it to Israel just for shits and giggles. It would be the biggest international trolling act in human history.
why? israel would just sell it to the chinese. they already sold defense systems the US gave them for free to china.
And then the Jew takes the money in the end.
Soon to be seen: Muslims are discriminated against since there's no middle eastern English queen/king!
Then Brits will gladly bend over to them and become united emirates kingdom and put in sharia law
All irrelevant countries around the world
>You can't hate it if you don't know about its existence
Because it would degenerate into /int/+/pol/ after 3 days. You can have a hist thread on /int/ already, or maybe even fucking /a/.
Imagine if /pol/ was in charge of Wikipedia and you would get the picture
What's not to get? Japans indecency laws come from us colonists early on
because it would be absolutely identical to /pol/, with disgusting, uneducated, racially mixed stormtards denying holocaust and blaming slavs for WW2.
What if mods banned anything World War II and after? That ought to clear away most of the garbage.
I used to live near the Italian border in the early 90s during the war here, so as a kid I'd watch Italian television and they had anime on it (Lupin III, etc.) all the time. It's how I got into anime. And whenever I visited Italy you had a lot of Japanese tourists, especially in cities like Venice. So I'd say "Japanese-Italian friendship" is a mutual thing.
The Jews have been at it longer than that.
It would also clear away most of the discussion. Imagine /a/ with no anime after 2000.
Now I'm genuinely upset. One thing I seriously dislike about the west is inexplicable puritanism.
That sounds pretty cool
Not all /hist/ is recent. Hide the ww2 threads and only minor things like "Romans were white"(which they were) are left
>implying the holocaust happened
B-but muh Rome
Muh Egypt and Mesopotamia and South America
Japanese feudalism and Westernization
Gauls and Vikings and Visigoths
>Not understanding that Orwell quote
The entire point of that quote was that Engsoc was never at war with Eastasia, until the three super-states decided to mix things up a bit and Engsoc retroactively changed all their history to make that claim.
What you need to understand is that the people in power in China aren't going to skip over Japan and Korea because hey, they look like us. Because historically that's just not true, it's like you're ignoring WWII entirely.
China -is- however interested in stirring up external conflict because they're domestic problems are going to tear the country apart from within. If you're going to quote Orwell you should appreciate that the -entire- fucking point of the huge ongoing war was to distract the population from the grievous problems they had at home.
>Asians tend to hold on to the past
Nationalists issues bring up past historical drudges are always funny for me. I don't normally blog because it's irrelevant, but these sanctimonious nationalists... I'll be brief.
See my country is a pretty shitty one that few care for. France and Japan raped our economy so bad it led to the greatest famine in 1945 with millions dead (think mothers eating their children). The US left us with presents like My Lai and Agent Orange (please DON'T Google Image that). China tried to purge our culture for a thousand years (try topping that) by forcing our women to marry their men (what's Nanking? Pfft) and banning our language, and we fought them off for the next millennia. The Mongol Empire invaded us thrice. Pol Pot massacred our civilians (with the help of the US and China, e.g. Ba Chuc)... Guess how many apologized to us.
At some point we knew we'd have to hate the whole world if we didn't move on. My current teacher is a fat American who loves eating xôi, and we love our fat Americans.
It would be an awful board filled with byzaboos and other filth.
The important countries.
They "helped" Korea in much the same way America "helped" africans by buying them so that their distant descendants might one day be able to live in a country not in africa.
Korea might be better off as a result of the results of the results of what Japan did, but the Japanese annexation of Korea was in no way for Korea's benefit. Koreans certainly don't look kindly upon the forced labor, widespread rape, pillaging cultural whitewashing and ethnic cleansing that happened during the occupation.
Younger generations might not be as angry, but any Koreans over 50 literally grew up in the miserable poverty directly caused by japan and will illuminate their feelings on the matter in great detail if asked.
Lindybeige, King of /hist/
Vietnambro, you are more of a man than I.
But that's from a scene that implies they're a scourge
They have a museum of all the atrocities, go there whenever you visit.
That's just your country being shit and having no historical significance.
oh.. OY VEY!
Seriously should have had your country back after WWII, fuck France for that, and fuck them for footing us the problem because of treaties.
Really now. I'm rather light skinned, blonde, and I have a pretty typical 'American' accent (although much quieter.) How am I received by the Japanese populace?
My reception amongst Taiwanese people is rather positive, for what it's worth. Mandarin ladies used to pat my hair for good luck when I was a child.
I've learned Korean language at college because it looked easy.
They'd better have abandoned that inferior language. It's like child's made up language.
>no historical significance
>Younger generations might not be as angry
Don't kid yourself. They're angry all right, but they're just parroting their elders. Bandwagoners. They don't bother with researching, they just go off of what others say. 'Course, this ain't limited to Koreans either.
Might explain why they're so cocky.
I love how Japan knows. I remember a news article from speigel. Japan went to visit israel and gave them a copy of the protocols of zion. They got really mad and the jap that gave it him said you seem to be follow it by the letter
W-well you are irrelevant
Joking aside, C/K/J drill their kids with their version of history that points fingers to each other. Not saying that no other country does this (all do) but thry seem to be educated that way from young age
You ain't taking that away
Right, the correct word was cultural significance. As in, their culture being of no importance or even amusement.
Quit being so racist and let in some immigrants. You dont belong to that land its everyones
It's fucking weird being in a thread like this with no flags.
Source now, I want a good laugh.
My history is pretty fucking self-deprecating.
Are you perhaps in need of 'remove kebab' images, and attempting to fish for some?
Let me look its been a long time
To be fair, you shouldn't write "we" and "us". that's exactly the problem with nationalism. You suffered through these things as much as a spanish football fan won the 2010 WC.
Dong son culture.
You'd rathe that've proxy wars?
This. I think the only way I could learn as much history as from him would be a proper history board
They're angry, but yeah it's not genuine anger. They still play japanese videogames and watch japanese cartoons, and if they met a japanese person they'd probably treat them like an actual person and be willing to get to know them. They don't have the deep, down in the bones rage that the old Koreans do. the kind where you'd spit on someone rather than look at them.
China and Korea do that. Japan not so much - they don't do so much drilling as implicit/implied racism covered up by politeness, and even that varies among households. I ought to know.
>he hasn't eaten banh minh sandwiches yet
You poor plebeian
If you can't refer to past what do you have? If your nation won't be WC, you should be happy too as they.are picked by nation to represent them.
Should you not feel for group achiement since te not done by you yourself? No.
I read that as "me love you long time"
Stop talking about /pol/ on /a/, it does weird things to me
Hangul was put together in part because a Korean king disliked using the Chinese language.
And personally speaking, I don't think having a highly complex language is a good thing. I mean, English is a fucking horror show with punctuation and grammar. The only thing it has going for it is that it doesn't rely on pictograms like Chinese does.
>spit on someone rather than look at them
Jesus shit some Asians are hard.
Like make you think about why you exist?
Japan commenced the war in 1931 when they invaded Manchuria
I don't think you should. I think taking pride in something just because you share geography is silly.
Its just acknowledging the past and hating them a bit for it. The people who suffered directly and their family affected may have justification or feel genuine anger, but people would treat others like people most of time. It's peer/nationalism thing, not personal
They're angry, but yeah it's not genuine anger. >They still play japanese videogames and watch japanese cartoons,
>and if they met a japanese person they'd probably treat them like an actual person and be willing to get to know them
You're confusing Korean Americans with actual Koreans. The former is pretty chill and a lot more openminded. The latter? They're hate machines, and not just towards the Japanese. They're very angry people, them.
Like sports fans.
Are we discussing all koreans or types of koreans? I've met quite a lot and they seem like nice people.
I have actually. But it's not a cultural significance.
Enjoy your empty life ;-;
I'm trying to say, you have to look at history through more macro lens.
>distract from internal problems with warmongering.
This is a myth popular among armchair strategists about as stupid as fan death. Loudly yelping about foreign affairs are not effective as distractions and very few are stupid enough to use it for that purpose. What is effective is strict media control that authoritarian governments are great at. Getting the plebs riled up is a great way to get casus belli though so if you ever see that happening that's what it's about.
Now clearly Japan and China are not allies, and Japan will not support China in an aggressive war, I don't think anyone has said that. But if there ever comes a time when China finds itself in a defensive war Japan will have its back, you can be sure on that.
All of Japan's actions since the meiji reformation including the invasion of Korea and China can be seen as a long defensive war against western imperialism. Those countries were slow to modernize and it was important for Japan to modernize them quickly in order to prevent them from being gobbled up by the western empires.
yup, exactly. I think that's silly
I wish all history classes would be self-deprecating.
This. Don't forget that the only reasons federal governments are still relevant is because they control armed forces. Otherwise nationalism is a moot point.
Dong Son is.
Enjoy living through others.
Not that I don't have an empty life, but atleast I'm living sincerely
That's like saying Jews won't drive BMWs because of the holocaust.
>YEAH! WE WON!
No, you didn't do shit. Those highly trained athletes won.
And you are looking through weeb/jap lens. You aren't fee of bias either
>They're very angry people
As expected of the Poland of Asia.
Can't seem to realize it's them being shit is why the keep getting conquered.
They didn't hear you yelling in the stadium, they were focusing on playing the game and winning for themselves.
Yes, yes it is.
But it's nothing compared to say German or French culture.
They're probably nice to white people. When it coms to Asians, most get cautious and suspicious. They don't have a very high opinion of people with darker skin either. And we're talking about a nation of people who'd boo their own celebrities if they fucked up in public, people who call their immigrants traitors if they went to work in Japan because they were too poor back home. Korean immigrants have it rough - they're hated by both the Japanese AND the Koreans on the mainland.
The only people who say this are minority immigrants who know they dont belong and try to make the natives forget their heritage cause they feel left out
Looking back at my education I think oddly enough history in primary school (elementary school for americans I think) was more nationalistic than any other time
Because they're the most popular.
To be fair, it's less about feeling shame and more about acknowledging what happened and not making the same mistakes again.
Why would they be emotional about something they know didn't happen?
History doesn't mean much.
Denmark and sweden has had more wars than any other duo of countries in the history of war, and I hardly feel any real hate for sweden, in fact I wish we lived as one nation with norway.
>But it's nothing compared to say German or French culture
Are we discussing pop culture or historical culture?
Kids are easier to brainwash when they're young and fresh.
Australia, sickest fucking country around.
Just stay away from me beach cunt.
In america all high school history for 3 months is the holocaust.
I have deep deep roots in my country, and I'm an aryan in a germanic country. I'm fine.
No, their culture is very important to humanity.
German craftsmanship; French art; British colonialism.
Being a gook myself and born and raised in korea until middle school and shit i can say that growing up in America did open my mind up a lot
Korean Americans and Koreans/fobs a do differ hugely in ideals and beliefs to extent it's almost in different end of spectrum. I hate getting into these debates between the two korean typesas their view differ so widely
Also note that its the individuals who make the personality most of time, not their nationality
Seriously? We learned all of the world.
Not for my high school, we studied Russian Revolution and Middle Eastern conflicts and South American contemporary politics. Oh, and Mao's China. We did a bit of WWII but it's been covered and covered.
Because whitey won the war and invented darpa right?
We know youve been made to hate your fellow germans since your childhood because WW2. People in the world dont want to see you guys turn into somalia like sweden
What about marco polo? Isn't spaghetti supposed to be noodles but
Look mate, I'm SE Asian too, so I'm not doing this out of bias.
It's very fucking apparent that German culture is more significant than Vietnamese.
Im in NM, USA I swear I didnt care to much at the time but looking back...
And I am being really fucking obvious in that post fuck.
Korean primary school and kids history shows really did focus on conflict between Japan now that I thin about it.
Japanese and Koreans did fight a lot
Go to bed
Because of WWII right?
but I'm not german, I'm germanic. And I'm not swedish. I'm danish. we like ourselves quite a lot, and we are VERY racist.
Your assumptious are shite
Huh. In Canada we didn't focus on it, but we did end up reading the Devils arithmetic and whatnot. We focused more on the geopolitical stuff- revolutions, wars, treatises, borders, etc.
And then there's Canadian history. Fuck Canadian history.
Laughing at you, not with you.
Did the mods put this into auto-sage?
What happened in Canadian history?
Okay I should probably just google it but why do Japan and Korea hate each other so much?
>we conquered USA for like 2 days!
>we export a lot of lumber too...
It probably has to do with us giving so much money to Israel and the Christians believing they are the chosen peoples. So we need to have the 66 billion drilled into our brains is my guess
>This is a myth popular among armchair strategists about as stupid as fan death.
Have you ever seen the American approval polls for the president following conflict? After 9/11 the Bush administration got to carry out a war on a country -entirely- unrelated to the incident and with congressional approval. If that's not an example of how easily a stupid nationalistic populace can have their attention redirected in times of conflict I don't know what is.
That you think that Asia will unify because of skin color implies that the entirety of human conflict in a globalized world between two nations with populations that look the same has been a fluke.
Seriously though, what is your basis for the shit you're spouting?
Do you even know that German has the most types of bread; the helicopter was German origin the blimp etc.
Korea taking self claimed japan culture and industries then selling it back to the nips.
There was a case where a korean show made a reference to fatman(the nuke) during prime time tv which got so out of control it lead to street protests.
How many of them were created without external influence.
because korean has always been chinas little buttboi, and no one hates a country more than china hates japan
Dont forget the syrup
Looks like yes
In NZ we did about 6 months of it over the 5 years of high school if you did it all the way to level 3. We sent more time doing Tudor/Stuart England which was a full year. Our history curriculum took stuff from all over the world. Fannily enough, I think we sent more time watching Blackadder while studying England for that one year than we did learning about NZ history over the five.
Thanks Drake for introducing yolo to everyone.
You do know Italy's in the G7 right?
I have no idea how, but they must have done something right to end up there.
This is stupid, we're going to go far off the original topic if you keep doing this shit.
And fuck it, I don't give a fuck. At the end of the day, Germany is more important than Vietnam.
>There was a case where a korean show made a reference to fatman(the nuke) during prime time tv which got so out of control it lead to street protests.
Got any videos or articles about it?
The whole hate - hate relationship between Korea and Japan is always fascinating to watch.
Because holy fuck, it's nearly a century, stop hating each other.
Korean politicians keeps moaning about it when things go bad and Japanese hate immigrants that flooded into Japan during and post war
Thousands of years of invasions, older generations still alive enough to remember the occupation and get pissed about denials while the politicians use this as a massive tool.. And it works a bit.
Similiar cultures..?( fuck it every Asian culture are based off Chinese culture anyway)
>Germany is more important
Asian culture is more popular than European culture.
Canadians are fucking bros to all of Europe, the world owes Canada
>there at the battle of Britain
>there at battle of Normandy
>there at D-Day
>liberated Italy (with help from Americans)
Thanks Phil Fish for making Fez!
Dude, Korea hates Japan for stuff that happened 500 years ago. Like >>100347740.
My friend said "hey, look, this was like 500+ years ago".
The women's answer: "ONLY 500 years".
Stop trolling and sperging.
Nah we just live in the west so we dont notice we are surrounded by European culture. Having a few chinese restaurants doesnt count
There are many examples in history where long standing rivalries, border disputes, and humiliations suddenly become irrelevant once the clash of civilizations begins.
See Greece vs Persia, Vercingetorix, China during Mongol invasions, Shaka the Zulu, etc.
The political issues of the day may change quickly. But trade issues and resource issues quickly become moot once race comes into play.
Not saying I'm free of bias.
Thanks Justin Bieber for being incredibly entertaining!
4chan was made because of how weab moot was.
phil fish is american? come on /a/, don't make me hate canada
Thanks for Nickelback, his songs are super intersting
I wasn't talking continents, you stupid fuck.
There is no way to truly discern which continent is more superior, that's why you do it by country.
This is some generic shit.
More or less this. Who sane of mind would give up the italian lifestyle?
phil fish is canadian
Look at this photograph.
>Clash of civilization
>Implying that China, Korea, and Japan haven't adopted so many western ideals that they're practically more "Western" then half the countries in the West.
I don't understand.
Nyancat is from a popular chinese anime right?
And you know what 4chan calls moot? A faggot.
moot use to come here but everyone called him a faggot and ran him off
Couldn't find the part about the shirt, i can remember seeing the tweets though, that was the spark to the protest againest fuji tv(long story short they spam korean shows)
Truly, it is uncanny.
>long standing rivalries, border disputes, and humiliations suddenly become irrelevant once the clash of civilizations begins
What the fuck am I reading
>Japanese hated countries ranking 2013
>Japanese loved countries ranking 2013
sauce: Niconico vote
Because Japan is a superior culture right?
You underestimate the Brit's ability to be self deprecating
The post of someone educated.
British people beat up some French people, British people beat up some Irish people, everyone beat up the natives, we almost got in an argument then became a country. Canadian history is pretty boring up until the Great War, where we were essentially used like shock troops by British officers to maliciously attack German forces with no intent of holding ground. We essentially earned enough respect there based on pure kill count and ferocity that the English simply stopped fucking with us, and we've been trying to calm down ever since. Really heavy emphasis on WWI- it was sort of our proxy war for independence, except it was fought by crazed bastards high on mustard gas throwing busted rifles like spears. Canuck infantry took on machine guns with pointed sticks and brass knuckles because the Brits told our boys the Germans has crucified a Canadian on the battlefield.
Yeah, that looks about right.
>clash of civilizations
>What is global expansion/westernization?
We aren't living in isolated 1200s mate.

Japan loves Italy, how many japanese tourists have you seen in Germany?
Are you guys fucking stupid? Italy is litterally filled with Japs.
>Turkey at 3
>Britain even in top 10
Seems about right, surprised Taiwan is so high up, considering they're basically Chinese in a way.
Huh, parts of that actually sound interesting.
turkey and japan have a good relationship.
What does that have to do with their messed up sentences? And jesus christ, go back to grammar school.
You know the saying..enemy of my enemy is my ally
I don't get chink/gook/nip hate triangle that much. It seems to point it's illogical.
I-is it love?
Make a movie about it.
They like britain because they are both tiny island nations.
That was a mandatory reading in a political science class I took, I wouldn't disagree except for this:
What exactly do you think is the greatest clash of culture between the United States and Japan or South Korea? I see China as being a problem only because of their rampant as fuck nationalism.
Technology that's good
Anime and manga
The world's first novel
There are probably others that I'm forgetting
Taiwan tries to make their distinction by being not-China, they were the nationalists (Ironically) that fled Mao.
>I dont know what they have even done besides the samurai sword
Technology that's good
Hundreds of different foods besides fish
The asians eat it up
>Muh psy the korean yells
>clash of civilization
Japan more or less reluctantly accepted western civilization ad korea stubbornly tried to resist it to point of being called hermit kingdom until they got busted by superior gaijin weapons that were resistant to shitty bows
Now they are both westernized to point they wouldn't look out of place in Europe bar their race
>muh gangnam style
Based Matthew Perry
His brother Oliver wasn't so bad either
>the worlds first novel.
No, that's pretty fucking disputed m8
Seeing how china invented gun powder does that make them badass?
Vaguely. Canadian history is sad anecdotes, essentially.
"Look how badass these troops were!"
"Too bad they all died because British officers are stupid"
"We took the most ground on D-day!"
"America doesn't care"
"Hey we fucked up a bunch of natives"
"Don't ask us about Rwanda"
"Hey we sort of started the red scare"
"Our hero raised millions for cancer"
"He died before he could complete his journey"
At least the Netherlands thinks we're cool.
>Walking around in sydney at night
>There's a club that has to do everything with gangnam style
I hope norms wake up one day and hate korea for starting this cancer.
Because culture is a PC way of saying race. Fundamentally it's all about race.
Japan doesn't actually hate chinese people Anon. I hope you understand. Geopolitical rivalries != hate. Geopolitical rivalries only last so long as there are geopolitical reasons to be rivals. If there is a greater threat then they will ally together.
>Have you ever seen the American approval polls for the president following conflict? After 9/11 the Bush administration got to carry out a war on a country -entirely- unrelated to the incident and with congressional approval.

That's when times are good Anon. It's not a distraction from anything when times are good. When times are bad, eg when you need a "distraction" warmongering only adds more instability.
Read up on any history and you'll see. War + internal problems = instant collapse instead of "distraction".
Its a hardcore weeb mate. He also listed physicists. Pretends like anyone knows any Japanese physicists. Everyone knows at least one western one.
Chinese invented it (made shitty fireworks), the euros perfected it and revolutionized warfare
But history is anecdotes
What did he do?
He did the voice for pico in the dubbed version of bocu no piccolo
And explain how this squares with your ideas that Japan actually wants to suck China's and Korea's dick.
I think race is a tool used by the rich and powerful to divide the masses and maintain and gain power. Both domestically and abroad. Ultimately, people are more divided by socioeconomic status than not.
And guess what socioeconomic tier both South Korea and Japan belong to?
Passchendaele, if you're interested.
commiefag pls go. It will never work and you would realise this if you left your moms basement
Wow! What a national treasure and I didn't even know there was a dubbed version of Pico to Chico!
>N-no, you're wrong about using war and external threats to maintain control over a population internally.
>I'm not aware of any examples and so I'm not going to list any, but I'll claim they're there!
What an extremely lazy way to argue,
What do you think North Korea is trying to do by beating their war drum so heavily anyway?
>Ultimately, people are more divided by socioeconomic status than not.
>And guess what socioeconomic tier both South Korea and Japan belong to?
I don't even understand what you're trying to say. You just contradicted yourself. If SK and JP are the same then how come they hate each other? Obviously the answer is that they don't. And they don't hate China either.
Also you're somehow implying that Japan hates poor people or something, utter nonsense again.
It captures the current political climate when JP and CN are engaged in their sibling rivalry. Meaningless in the long term, just like the rivalry between sparta and athens is meaningless when persia came knocking.
I'm confused, what will never work? Communism? I don't support communism, but that's because I think it's a naive form of government, much like unadulterated capitalism is.
Are you saying my claims are somehow indicative of communism? Have you ever read about Davos Man? Why do you think people are more heavily divided based off of something as perceptual as skin color then they are of their actual, day to day, living conditions?
I don't know who communism bro is and I don't know what that has to do with anything. But he's not me.
I don't know if you're trolling or not anymore.
I'm saying Japan and South Korea's populations and methods of government have far more in common with the west then they do with China.
They hate each other for all the historical baggage between the two countries, which is immense. That isn't to say that people hate other people because they're poor or something, typically it's the poor that hate the rich for being taken advantage of, legitimately or not.
You mean you're not >>100350369
Because I'm both
Depends on the Canadian really. There is some that won't shut up about how much better they are at X because they are from Canada. Which is a really fast way to piss some people off. Sort of like someone who is trying to show off to others due to a inferiority complex or something making them want to show off constantly.
If a Canadian doesn't do that then most of the guys around here are pretty chill with them in my region at least.
Yes that's exactly what I mean. I've been the one posting about "macro history" for the past hour, dunno what communism bro is about.
So you subscribe to the "democracy" theory. I'm saying that has only been tested among white countries. Let see a real fight and we will see. Democracies are responsible for some of the worst race based savagery in the modern world. See democratically elected hitler, america up until emancipation, america after emancipation vs native americans, jim crow, south africa. Race is not yet resolved and it will be the basis of conflict if there is to be one.
But I'm not saying there will be a east vs west conflict, just that if there is one in a hypothetical japan would be on the side of the east.
>historical baggage between the two countries
Which 2 countries are you even talking about? JP/CN or JP/KR?
If you think the historical baggage between JP/CN is "immense" then you are simply misinformed. JP/KR is only a little bit more bad.
I understand this is a big topic but I'm not sure if this is the place to get into it. You can read more about it but you need a holistic view of history to really get what I'm saying.
The Democratic Peace Theory? To an extent, yes.
I was talking about JP/KR, but I'm not sure how much greater the baggage between two countries can get honestly.
I'm also confused as to why you think I'm observing history as discrete parts instead of a greater whole.
Rather than democracy at fault national interest have more to do with it. Otherwise America would not go to great lengths overturning govt across the world,Françafrique,Soviet funding rebels etc.
The weak will always be toys for the strong,people are selfish like that and acts of kindness is only a tool to win publicity and moral justification.
