Aggressive Chinese Military

New York Times
“Why do you sell arms to Taiwan? We don’t sell arms to Hawaii,” said Col. Liu Mingfu, a China National Defense University professor and author of “The China Dream,” a nationalistic call to succeed the United States as the world’s leading power.

There's more stuff in the article but this comment caught my attention. Is he serious or just being an ass? Is this how the mainland Chinese think of Taiwan, without any acknowledgment of current realities? I think he should ask why Hawaii sees no need to buy Chinese (or any other country's) arms.
