I think the Chinese politicians aren't quite aware of the census data for their own population. Last I heard there were 1.3 billion screaming Chinamen...


Overall I'm not sure how practical the Chinese plan is. What they're basically talking about is getting the Japanese to agree to process tens of millions of Chinese citizens, and to accept permanent Chinese military bases in the center of Tokyo to process these colonists, and all the logistical and military supplies needed to immigrate them. At the scale we're talking about here, Japan would essentially be giving up their national sovereignty to China. This is complete political insanity. For another thing, I don't think the United States would accept such a heavy Chinese military presence in Japan even without the gate.

...of course this was written by a right wing Japanese author, so maybe we shouldn't be expecting anyone to be acting normally.

America might accept a Japanese takeover of Taiwan for various reasons, but Japan is far too big of an American priority for anything like this to happen...even if it meant WW3.

...well at least IRL USA wouldn't allow anything like this to happen. The America in the Gate universe somehow is so strapped that it can't send a couple battalions of Marines through the Gate.



...I always do find it interesting how allot of Japanese right wing authors assume modern USA's first reaction to Japan in most political crises to to scheme against them.

I think it's been mentioned before but Gate world isn't exactly like our own. For example the Middle East conflict with the US is actually much more complicated in Gate than it is in real world.

I suppose this could be seen as a reaction to WW 2 and its aftermath:
- it's the US that stopped the japanese expension
- and after the war is the US that turned Japan into a client state.

Aha.

...still. I'm actually kinda surprised that more people aren't concerned about the strategic implications of people in the other world possessing the capacity to open up gates on earth. The Fantasy world inhabitants have fairly limited means to take advantage of the gates, but what if a Modern Earth Nation came to control something like that? Half a dozen of these gates and you'd be able to invade and conquer almost any country on earth.

I'd think it'd be the inclination of every country on earth to find out more of the extent of the gate creation capability was.

Given what we've seen of people on the other side of the gate I wouldn't be surprised if they don't actually have the power to open them and that was something that was left behind by some other race ages ago. The Emperor's wizards just found out a way to activate that one and it led to Japan. I also wouldn't be surprised if they don't have a way of turning it off either.

i don't think the story actually touch on this yet. Did the Empire open the Gate with its own power or did they discover the Gate?

The location of the Gate to me seem as if someone else left it and the Empire stumble on to it and manage to figure out how to open it.

Yes, but every country on Earth has seen FAR less than what we have seen. At this point not even the Japanese know the mechanics behind the gate opening, how controllable it is, or how replica-table the effects are.

Until the mechanics of the gate are understood, this is really somewhat of a global security issue for every nation on earth.





edit: Something else to consider is that right now the JSDF is limited to exploring a what looks to be a single continent. While the JSDF is doing good against the local continents super power, that doesn't mean comparatively that they're the strongest power on the planet.

(I.E. Maybe the Empire doesn't have thousands of warriors as good as Rory, but what about the people living on the other side of the planet?)

Even if they MERELY discovered the gate...they had to know quite a bit about it.

I mean think about it. They sent a prepared army through the gate...with a bloody edict of conquest. That suggests they were very much aware that what they were going through a gate that lead to another world, that they could make their way back through the gate. You wouldn't do any of this without prior knowledge of the gates mechanics.

considering they didn't even bother to scout the place they were going to invade. i don't think the Empire knows anymore about the Gate then turning it on and off.

Thinking about it i am not sure if the Empire knew even how to turn the Gate off. Logically speaking if the enemy defeated your invading army and was counterattacking. You would turn the Gate off instead of letting the enemy size the Gate and its surrounding area.

There is God(s) and their apostles, judging by Rory alone we know that there is a whole plethora of super natural things there that the JSDF hasn't investigated in the least and neither has the Empire.

About the Gates, it's certainly possible that more than anything, creating one could be a major pain in the ass, thus "why" they aren't doing zillions of them in one go. In theory closing one should be as easy as wreck it, but you need to get there to do so Also I bet that they have no way of choosing which world is going to be connected to a Gate. I doubt that making more Gates would end up in also leading to Earth.

Heh, I kind of agree with the theory, as there's just no way that the Empire can still be convinced that keeping open the gate is strategically feasible in the long run if they could just close it... Which makes me think that they can't. Kind of like a Webway Gate, except there's no Eldar to help the bumbling Monkeigh.

Well they couldn't even if they wanted too since it appears the Japanese have built a base around it.
