The answer to the conflict between China and the Philippines lies in soccer

If there will ever be a war between China and the Philippines over the disputed Huangyan Island, aka, Scarborough Shoal, in South China sea, the outcome is a no-brainer, in the minds of Chinese netizens at least. The calculated is pretty straightforward: “You [the Philippines] were defeated by the Chinese male soccer team and you dare to challenge the PLA?”

To those of you who don’t quite get the joke. Though soccer is the love of Chinese sports fans above all, the Chinese male football team is generally seen as a national shame and a group of “forever losers” due to… their forever bad performances, and is often the subject of scorn and jokes.

Here is the calculation in an inforgraphic, if you will. [Picture from @猫扑]

    If this shit would be submitted to 9GAG, be prepared to wear a medal saying that you are a “dumbass and failed in life”. In history, all empires never last, and naturally China will be next. The Philippines and all the other “little people” countries China bullied (Tibet, Uyghur to name two), will still be around. Bet on that!
