we should be more like Lithuania

China could be the greatest government and greatest nation on the planet. All they have to do is do the opposite of whatever fuckery they doing now.

God I want to root for China for so bad but in this day in age I wouldn't give a fuck if Brainiac just up and abducted the whole country, minus Hong Kong, Xinjiang, China Mongolia, and Tibet, and put China into a hyperbolic time chamber until they get their fucking shit together. You know, give Chinese freedom of speech, voting rights, gay rights, etc. And stop threatening Taiwan and Japan.

Why does China get to kill 40 million Chinese and the people responsible get to stay in power?

Why does China get to steal every fucking IP and allowed to participate on the world stage?

Why does China get to protect North Korea which is holding millions of Koreans hostage?

'F9' Star John Cena Angers Fans in China for Calling Taiwan a Country, Despite Apology

Source: Variety

“F9” star John Cena apologized to Chinese fans Tuesday after calling Taiwan a country in a promotional interview, but many viewers in the world’s largest film market have deemed his beseeching appeal for forgiveness insufficient.

Speaking with the Taiwanese news channel TVBS earlier this month, the professional wrestler — who has been learning Chinese for over a decade — said in Mandarin that Taiwan would be the “first country” able to watch the latest installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. The release in Taiwan was originally scheduled for May 18, three days before China and more than five weeks ahead of its June 25 U.S. debut, but it has been delayed indefinitely due to a worsening in local COVID-19 conditions.

Geez, Why is John apologizing for speaking the truth? did he suddenly lost his spine like LeBron?

he should ask Chinese people why they have to use 'international' line when flying to taiwan, instead of domestic.

Just be aware and go when there are less people i suppose.
