Mao offered U.S. 10 million women

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."

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...

Would not of done me a bit of good, I was only 15 and the most important issue of the day for me was how much saddle soap to put on my baseball glove and arguing with my buddies on who was prettier Mary Ann or Ginger?
