外文标题：China is second-largest country in land area | World Bank
What happened to Canada? Did America steal more Canadian land?
Nah we paid for it
But US is already bankrupt.
Haha I was going to ask the same thing. Probably some of their icy land melted away
Talwar e Pakistan（巴基斯坦）
Iran smaller than Saudi Arabia, and Libya…?
Its by Land area i.e. Total area – Area covered with Water.
Look at the map I feel that the US is much more larger than China if it’s mainland combined with Alaska the US’ biggest enclave which cut off the seashore area with very long line from Canada.
This is nothing compare to the peak of our land territory during the Qing period.
Your country is still trying to repeat that!
Anyways Qing’s Empire was the 7th largest Empire of history. The largest was British Empire and it was almost 3 times in size in comparison to Qing Dynasty.
Most of the British empire land is in colonizing India.

No, actually our colonies/empire in Africa was even larger. Im not even counting australia and the likes.
Haha poor India, even here China is ranked higher
Looks like Russia is more than twice larger than China.
Russia has Siberia with plenty of fresh water, mines, and oil.
China has Xinjiang with many hidden oil fields and Tibet with plenty of fresh water from the Himalaya and all kind of precious minerals.
Anyone who dares to touch Siberia will get nuked by Russia.
Anyone who dares to touch Xinjiang or Tibet will get nuked by China.
I guess that’s the primary rule for the big boys.‘
So that means, that China is never going to get its erstwhile lands of Far East back? (Manchuria etc)
Are you dumb? We didn’t lose Manchuria. Look at the MAP! Manchuria is Northeast China cover in the 3 provinces

Man, you dont want to mess with the Russian bear in their own land, if it was possible then China would jave taken back its land Russia seized after the Qing collapsed , remember the 1960s sino-soviet border clashes? Think Chinese leaders have rightly come to the fact that just like Mongolia(and outer manchuria) was carved out from China by Russia, there is nothing they can do today about. So better yo just accept reality and move on , than lingering on the past, as it wont change anything/isnt worth it.
Maybe 100 years from now things might change, who knows?
