Apologetic Abe Android Appears At Chinese Robot Exhibition

A rather apologetic android made up to look like Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzō Abe was on display at the recent Chinese International Robot Exhibition in Shanghai. The robot, which continuously said “sorry” and bowed gained a mixed reaction from attendees, some becoming excited and posing for photos with it, with others shaking their heads in disapproval. The event was held close to the 70th anniversary of China’s victory over Japan’s WWII occupation, for which Abe has said he won’t apologize for. A Japanese netizen who found it very amusing was met with disapproving questioning from a Chinese commenter.

    “The event was held close to the 70th anniversary of China’s victory over Japan’s WWII occupation” and when did that happen? I don’t remember learning about China being victorious over Japan in WW II. I remember learning how many countries helping China not be totally taken over while the KMT fought them (and mostly lost terribly) and the Communist fighting the KMT and running away when the Japanese did attack them (basically helping the Japanese). I also remembering reading military and diplomatic dispatches as well as newspaper articles and articles in history journals telling how China was freed when the Japanese surrendered due to other countries successfully defeating them in battle and dropping a few big bombs there. I guess in all that research I missed the big victory by China. You would think after that big victory they would have no hard feelings toward the Japanese, having whooped them so well during the war.

      You have to read between the lines of the actual history. There you will also find tales of the great unicorn-riding Sasquatch people of Atlantis. Its a fascinating read.

          I can seen that movie being made too. You left out the part about the Olympic swimming pool sized vat of lube, the huge multi-speed back massager/hammer drill and the 5 live octopi, but other than that you’re speakin’ the gospel.

    pretty hilarious if you ask me! And for something made in China the robot is very well done.

    So Xi asked Abe to come to China for the anniversary of the “victory” over them. I didn’t hear that Abe accepted this invitation, but really why would he? Look at the shit like this that happens all over China every damn day. Would you really come here just to get shit all over by stupid people?
