It appears that China’s Dictator for Life, Xi Jingpin, doesn’t like strong women, probably because he’s afraid of them.
Witness his unhappiness when Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the strongest and most capable women we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes, visited another strong woman, 蔡英文 (Tsai Ing-wen), the President of Taiwan, an island
that, by all rights, should be an independent nation rather than the Republic of China, its official name since 1949.
According to our Chief International Correspondent, associate solitary reporter Larry Theis, Secretary of State Antony Blinken says that in the unlikely event of a PRC capture of Taiwan, there
would be plenty of room in Japan for the 23.9 million Taiwanese. Taiwan was a Japanese colony from 1895 to1945, which is why Japan has maintained friendly relations with Taiwan for many decades
(funny thing about wars and their aftermaths, yes?). Though Blinken was quick to point out that on Honshu, space would be extraordinarily limited and so he might suggest that Japan initiate talks
with Russia to offer refugee status to the Taiwanese on Sakhalin, an island just north of Hokkaido that Russia grabbed from Japan just as the Second World War was concluding.
Japan’s Prime Minister, 岸田 文雄 (Fumio
Kishida), could not be reached for comment, according to associate solitary reporter Ko Il-sun, who is based in Seoul.
