Isolation and Neutrality

ON ISOLATION ALLOW us to express appreciation for your firm attitude towards Japan’s bombings, and the sympathy of the British public toward our misfortune.

In violation of the most sacred treaties she had ever signed, and in defiance of the unanimous resolutions of all the member-States of the League of Nations, Japan has seized Manchuria and Jehol by force. Not satisfied with this huge loot, which is larger than Germany, France and Italy put together, Japan for the second time in five years is waging ruthless war on China. By bitter experience China has learned that Japan is aiming at nothing short of the complete political and military control of China, so that she may use all China’s resources and man-power in carrying out her ambition of dominating all Asia and the Pacific.
