Trump picks half-breed Harris to stir shit in South China Sea - from Australia with love!
KUALA LUMPUR (February 2018): US President Donald Trump has picked Admiral Harry Harris as ambassador to Australia.
And what had this half Japanese half American breed had to say?
He immediately and shamelessly reveals his anti-Chinese stance by accusing China of seeking to "undermine" the international order in the Asia Pacific.
We in I Love Malaysia-China Silk Road are not surprised of the Japanese-American breed that Harris is.
After all, Harris is the blood combination of the war-waging American and that of the uncivilised and barbaric World War ll (WWll) Japanese.
We guess we can’t change the spots of the leopard or the stripes of the tiger.
Harris probably got appointed by Trump not for his intelligence but for his boot licking expertise.
Oh! We see. Trump loves Harris because the latter has poor or short memory. He has forgotten that his barbaric full breed Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbour. Also forgetting the millions the Japanese had murdered in WWll.
Also forgetting the cruelty and torture inflicted on children, men and women, not only in China but the rest of the world.
Harris is also unaware of the war-waging ways of the US post WWll.
|These are what half breeds like Harris love to wage globally according to US global interests and agenda|
China has, to date, only been expanding its global economic agenda - not killing innocent lives by the millions like what the US had been doing until today, and ongoing.
So, Mr half-breed Harris, we know you are itching to go to war with China in the South China Sea - but the rest of the world does not share your evil intentions and military agenda.
As for the Aussies, remember your roots and don’t let your not-so-respectful past rise again for the rest of the world to see, just because of the half-breed Harris.

"Harry Harris, Trump's pick for Australia envoy, slams Beijing's Asia ambitionsBy聽Ben Westcott, CNN

CNN - China is seeking to "undermine" the international order聽in the Asia Pacific, Adm. Harry Harris, US President Donald Trump's nominee for ambassador to Australia, said in Washington on Wednesday.
Addressing the US Committee on Armed Services on聽the challenges facing the US military in the region, Adm. Harris, the highest commander of US forces in Asia Pacific region, said the Trump administration must work to counter Beijing's influence in the region.
"China's intent is crystal clear. We ignore it at our peril," he said in public testimony. "I'm concerned China will now work to undermine the international rules-based order."
Plain-spoken and well-known in the international community for his remarks on US policy in the Asia Pacific, Harris has often provoked a vitriolic reaction from Beijing, in particular for his passionate calls for action in the South China Sea.
His appointment would raise the stakes in the battle for influence in Asia, with experts saying Harris could push the Australian government to tighten military cooperation with its traditional ally.

The head of US Pacific Command, Harris was announced in early February as聽US President Trump's pick as the next ambassador to Australia.
The ambassadorship to Australia has been empty for almost 18 months following the end of the former incumbent John Berry's term in September 2016 -- one of a number of key聽Asia roles that haven't been filled by the Trump administration.
Harris' appointment must be confirmed by the US Congress, and it's not clear exactly when that will happen.
During his testimony to the committee on Wednesday, Harris said China was trying to reorder the Indo-Pacific through "military modernization, influence operations and predatory economics."
"China's impressive military build up could soon challenge the US across almost every domain ... If the US does not keep pace, (US Pacific Command) will struggle to compete with the People's Liberation Army on future battlefields," he said.
Taking the gloves off
Born in Yokosuka, Japan, the son of an American naval officer and a Japanese mother, Harris ascended through the ranks of the US Navy to become the highest commander in the Asia Pacific region.
Carl Schuster, former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center, told CNN that Harris was greatly respected by the armed forces and in political circles in Washington DC.
"He may be a good advocate for Australia's interests and position ... He has credibility with the Trump administration so he could very well be viewed as two-way conduit," he said.
Australian leaders warmly welcomed the news of Harris' appointment, including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull who has met with the admiral in Hawaii on at least one occasion.
"Great to see Admiral Harry Harris nominated by (Donald Trump) as US ambassador to Australia. Look forward to seeing you in Canberra, Harry,"聽Turnbull said on his official Twitter on February 10.

Schuster said Adm. Harris was an "innovative and flexible thinker," who was a strong advocate for a strong advocate for tighter ties between the US and its allies in Asia.
The admiral's harsh rhetoric comes at a time when Australia finds itself caught between its longtime ally the United States and its major economic partner China.
Euan Graham, director of the International Security Program at Sydney's Lowy Institute, told CNN Harris could help the Trump administration put more pressure on Australia to follow the US line.

"Australia can't continue to expect that it will be able to have its cake and eat it too when it comes to the economic relationship with China and (its US ally),"
"(Harris) is someone who is prepared to take the gloves off when it comes to making hard choices in the relationship between China and the US."
Australia could be more receptive than usual to US persuasion -- in recent months, the government has been taking a hard look at Beijing's influence in Australia, after an opposition Labor Party senator stepped down聽over taking large donations from a Chinese businessman.
The admiral could push Canberra to show greater enthusiasm for ongoing talks between India, Japan, Australia and the United States about聽taking part in the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue,Graham said, with the unspoken aim of containing China.
"His nomination singles an interest on the part of the administration to make sure that Australia steps up on questions of defense cooperation, alliance cooperation, where China is concerned," he said.

Beijing's harsh attitude to Harris
Harris has been a longtime critic of the Chinese military's island building campaign in the South China Sea, a position he continued on Wednesday citing Beijing's "aggression" in the area.
In聽a lecture in Sydney in December 2016,聽Harris said the US would not give up "shared domains" at sea, "no matter how many bases are built on artificial features in the South China Sea."
Schuster said rather than having an aggressive attitude towards Beijing, Harris instead had a "realistic" approach to China.

"He sees China as a strategic competitor to the US ... he looks at the South China Sea and thinks if we keep ignoring what China is doing there, then China will win by default," he said.
The Chinese government has expressed its open dislike for Harris on multiple occasions in state media and is unlikely to be pleased at the news of his ambassadorship.
In February 2016, Chinese state media Xinhua infamously questioned whether Harris' Japanese ancestry, on his mother's side,聽had influenced his opinion on the South China Sea.
"Some may say an overemphasis on his background as a Japanese-American general is a bit unkind .. But to understand the Americans' sudden upgraded offensive in the South China Sea, it is simply impossible to ignore Admiral Harris' blood, background, political inclination and values," the piece read.
When asked about Harris' nomination earlier this week, Geng Shuang, China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, stressed the need for stability.
"It's a shared responsibility and expectation of countries in the Asia Pacific region to promote stability and development. China hopes the policies and relations of involved countries can benefit the peace and stability, development and prosperity of the region."
Graham said any loud protests by the Chinese government could backfire, particularly given the recent atmosphere of outrage in Australia over allegations of attempts by Beijing to influence domestic policy.
"I think the response, by and large, in Australia would be to swing behind the US alliance," he said.
