    So you want nuclear holocaust? Because that's how you get nuclear holocaust.



    Thank God I live far enough away from any major American city that I wouldn't catch too many after effects. Unless someone felt like nuking Buffalo, but like what's the point?

    Chances are, it will be China that cannot afford a hot war:

    Even if they do, they will be the ones destroyed first:

    If China nukes one of the those places, they get bombed 3 times over. The Joker only laughs so long as Batman shows him mercy. The trick is not to.

    Again, the world has too many Batmen and Doctors Who who expect to guilt-trip their nemeses into changing. China can only be dealt with using Goblin Slayer or Dragonborn tactics.
    The counterpoint is pretty clear, tbh. Sony isn't seeing growth potential outside of China sufficient to merit losing out on the market. Which, honestly, makes sense. Their income is dependent on the masses buying or subscribing. Not on wealthy elites who can afford to buy in bulk but won't, but in the average person who has some regular disposable income. People who have that disposable income are becoming rarer in the West and especially the US due to worsening income inequality, while that block of potential customers is growing in China.

    Put simply, they see a dim future in China.

    And none outside of it.

    The income inequality is much worse in China. They just don't let the foreigners see the disabled orphan children begging on the streets. I can pass for a local, so I saw. And by disabled, I don't just mean not being able to move an arm or a leg. I mean an arm or a leg missing or bent in a direction that it shouldn't. I've essentially killed any Chris Hansen memes by instantly responding with his associations with the Escobar crime family. Now, companies that "support" Black Lives Matter can be countered by saying that, in their eyes, Uyghur lives don't:

    That's not how nukes work, they'd already be in the air by by the time any installation was destroyed. So what if a country gets nuked from four different directions, the place will be rubble after the first wave anyways. It's like you've never heard of the Cold War.

    China's a big country. I was not saying that all 3 would hit the same place. Ah, yes, the Cold War. Where the US executed some Soviet spies. And now there are actual ChiCom spies captured.

    Insert the "yeah, but" about the fact that China's middle class by itself is larger than the entire US population and still growing, while the middle class (and those with the right purchasing power) elsewhere is shrinking in a bad way. With no sign of reversing the trend.

    The lifestyle of those in poverty in the US is much better than the lifestyle of those in poverty elsewhere, in China, at least. Of course, the foreigners are only allowed to see the good toilet paper, just as the foreigners are only allowed to see falsified data. Trust me. My ass has experienced the true terror of Chinese toilet paper:

    Also, given China's population, they have raw numbers for anything. That swarm follows the government's beck and call to buy and not buy things, like the crest worms serving Zouken. When you do business with the American people, you do business with the American people. When you do business with the Chinese people, you are merely doing business with the Chinese government's sensories (Dies Irae definition).

    I think it's a universal rule that GD needs at least one over the top reactionary to remind everyone that we're not that crazy.

    It's literally the exact same thing that triggered the impeachment hearings.

    hell the actual story was so implausible that Fox fucking news refused to release it, which is why Rudy had to take it to a tabloid.

    Even then, it's a Tabloid known for catch and kill on behalf of Trump. He's long been friends with the ownership.

    McCarthyism will be a new trend, that's for sure.

    Where have you been living in all these years? Communism in China is long dead and all of us living there knows.

    I know, but this is straight-up hard to justify even from the "Socialism with Chinese characteristic" lens.

    We can't, which is why people will choose to rile up the matter to bring it the the central's attention. Province vs Central is also a thing in China.
