Strong claims, but reportedly weak flavor

If you happen to be walking through a Chinese supermarket looking for beer in the near future, check and see if they have a brew called Diaoyu Islands. While it might not be the tastiest beer ever, Diaoyu Islands brand is propaganda of the very highest quality.

For our part, we’ll be on the lookout for the virtually inevitable Japanese “Senkaku Islands” brand of sake, coming to an Asian market near us soon.

    Might I suggest “Foreign Policy Extra Lite” as a new US brand.

    Japan should start using the islands to store nuclear waste. Then tell the Chinese they can have them.

    Just like the real thing – removes inhibitions, makes you think you are more popular than you really are, and leads you to believe you really can take on the entire world in a fight.
