This strategy is shortsighted and flawed. It is only viable as long as there is conflict and becomes ineffective when it ceases. While overhauling language is difficult it can be done practically and peacefully and plays to China's advantage in size and proximity. Institutional change to language can prevail as long as its workable and can be done in phases. Develop the language, move it to signage and schools, then move it to software and media. This will ensure continued cultural exchange and alignment between these ethnicities and China in spite of change in geopolitical landscape.
I was just thinking the other day.
Only 3 Type 81s were ever approved for import into the USA. They are in 3 different Configurations too: a Full Stock Version, Side Folder, and Underfolder Version. They are known as the Norinco EM355 here and take modified 84s mags. The starting bid for the fixed stock version is $23,500 on GunBroker. Those Canadians got them pretty available in their country and I’m jealous.
