    The new Secretary of State George Tusila arrived in Toyko for talks with the Imperial Prime Minister. He was attempting to straighten out the mess that had become relations between the two nations. With a lot of talk and explaination he managed to undo the problem that had arisen and iron out the differences. The result was the tariff wars were ended and things returned to a normal level between the two nations. Hawaii was still going to help China but it ashured the Rising Sun that it had not taken any position regarding Hainan Island. The island was home to 450,000 Japanese and 25,000 Chinese..
    Prime Minister Shapeway had learned that he would have to consult with his team before promising anything to a foreign power. He reverse course regarding relations with Russia after a negative reaction from the Palace and the house.

    With the Election in Hawaii there were a lot of changes.Hawaii's new Prime Minister reassured both the Empire of the Rising Sung and the Republic of China that Hawaii would continue to act as a friend to both. Hawaii's new Secretary of State was meeting with the representatives of both countries to iron out any problems with the Hainan Island. Hawaii stood by its plans to help develop the port of Macao . China was prepared to spend 150 million dollars on the project and Hawaiian companies were prepared to invest 50 million Hawaiian dollars in the project.

    Next time you post this exact same this, without any actual real comments, you know, like you have done 118 times before (out of the total of 120 comments in this thread not made by the OP) if someone reports it as trolling, I'm going to believe them.

    Only if the OP objects.
    I don't see any harm in someone saying 'keep it up'. That kind of thing is a generic positive expression that most TL authors would enjoy.
    Granted, it is weird, but doesn't trolling require malintent? I don't see any of that here. Just someone who for some godforsaken reason uses the exact wording over and over and an author who has not really commented directly about this?

    Ah, another county heard from.

    Outstanding idea would be to walk away.

    The objective of Hawaii's Prime Minister was to reduce tensions between the Republic of China and the Empire of the Rising Sun. The recent problem regarding Macao had been worked out and there now seemed to be a spirit of co-operation between both Asian powers. The Republic of China did want a return of more of China to them from the Empire but was willing to talk about it rather than starting hostilities. The Hawaiian Prime Minister had spoken to both countries Prime Ministers at the Asian conference in Manila and had promised to visit both nations. She had spoken with the Australian and New Zealand PM about this seeking to reach a consensus on the China-Empire of the Rising Sun Problem

    118 times?

    I'm all for encouraging writers (REALLY like feedback on my stuff as much as the next wannabe Martin), but the same comment every time? How about telling the author 'I like what you did there with XXXX" or "have you considered?".

    Pretty much ever author I know or have communicated with likes feedback AND constructive comments. Helps improve the story and may ever spark an idea, if not for the current work, maybe one down the road.

    The Empire of the Rising Sun was seeing some instability in two regions. Those regions were bordering the Republic of China and Mongolia. The Chinese government was doing nothing to encourage violence against the Empire and suggested dialog to resolve issues. The Empire felt that there were some Russians behind this.
