WASHINGTON (AP) Amid a discussion of trade in 1973, Chairman Mao Zedong made what Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger called a novel proposition: sending tens of thousands, even 10 million, Chinese women to the United States.
"You know, China is a very poor country," Mao said, according to a document released by the State Department's historian office. "We don't have much. What we have in excess is women. So if you want them we can give a few of those to you, some tens of thousands."
A few minutes later, Mao circled back to the offer. "Do you want our Chinese women?" he asked. "We can give you 10 million."
After Kissinger noted Mao was "improving his offer," the chairman said, "We have too many women ... They give birth to children and our children are too many."
"It is such a novel proposition," Kissinger replied in his discussion with Mao in Beijing. "We will have to study it."
Addendum: Wilt Chamberlin took Mao up on it.
Did Bill Clinton take his share too?
Mao’s nutty proposition countered w Kissingers’s nutyy globalist population-control nonsense
Had Mao not killed so many Chinese males in his “camps”...he would not have had such a problem...
I’ll take a few
Where’s E-bay when you need it?
Multiply times 10 million...
Anyone of them look like Zhang Ziyi? If so, its deal worth considering! ;o)
But seriously folks...
Isn’t communism wonderful! you can offer your people to another country and...
(this is the important part...)
ACUTALLY FORCE THEM TO GO
Just as long as they send us the hot ones, I’d be all for it.
Thanks, but I’ve had plenty over the years.
I would like one of those, please.
This makes me somewhat want to support human cloning.

“Mr. President, I smell a big, fat, commie rat!”
Only one? I heard after an hour you’re just hungry for another......
. . . . an hour later, I’ll just want another one . . .
