My my, sooo off-base you are. By the Unfair Treaties, some Chinese territories were stolen by her stronger neighbors back then. Is it sooo wrong to eventually get them back?! This has nothing to do with ethics in society.
you have to be careful with this kind of statement cause Russia is your neighbour too and few times you people talked about Siberia as one of those lands that you have to get back.
such things started in Europe ww2 , Hitler said i just want back Sudetan "German land" aka half of Czechoslovakia ...........but he didn't stop there he wanted "back" 'german' Danzig aka Gdansk and half of Poland ............than he wanted back "German city" of London and Moscow..................i hope you don't take this personally but there is underlying danger in Revanchism ...........two world wars are born out of Revanchism
Revanchism (from French: revanche, "revenge") is a term used since the 1870s to describe a political manifestation of the will to reverse territorial losses incurred by a country, often following a war or social movement. Revanchism draws its strength from patriotic and retributionist thought and is often motivated by economic or geo-political factors. Extreme revanchist ideologues often represent a hawkish stance, suggesting that desired objectives can be achieved through the positive outcome of another war.
Revanchism is linked with irredentism, the conception that a part of the cultural and ethnic nation remains "unredeemed" outside the borders of its appropriate nation-state. Revanchist politics often rely on the identification of a nation with a nation-state, often mobilizing deep-rooted sentiments of ethnic nationalism, claiming territories outside of the state where members of the ethnic group live, while using heavy-handed nationalism to mobilize support for these aims. Revanchist justifications are often presented as based on ancient or even autochthonous occupation of a territory since "time immemorial", an assertion that is usually inextricably involved in revanchism and irredentism, justifying them in the eyes of their proponents.
