Ever seen this map?
[China’s famous 9 dashed line, I realise only now that this particular one actually has 10. Essentially as you can see its a rather crudely drawn line that once represented the extent of China’s historical fishing explorations and that it’s navy once or twice ventured into]
So what is with China’s need to have the 9 dashed line as part of their territory? （Any casual glance would likely reveal to casual observer that this is ridiculous)
Its all about wanting china to look like the rooster/ chicken.
How can they possibly have a complete chicken if they don’t have the legs?
Plus according to the Chinese, the legs are the most tasty part.
Therefore to complete the chicken China needs the legs.
“why won’t the world let us complete our chicken?”
We are a proud nation for which unity is crucial.
Bullshit. You just want your country to look like a chicken.
To be quite honest, the old map already has the legs, this one just looks like the chicken now has a sleeping bag.
….All we want is for our chicken to have a sleeping bag, why won’t you let us have the sleeping bag?
Soon they’re going to bust out some historical maps from the Yuan dynasty… and say.. hey look we used to own Korea as well, that was traditionally ours so we need it back.
(And technically Yuan dynasty was the remnants when Mongolia conquered China, and even re-wrote themselves into the Chinese history books, but more about that later)
All we want is for our chicken to have a beard, why won’t you let our chicken have a beard?
