WHAT SUN AND CHIANG, DID TO CHINA?
WHAT THE CHRISTIAN LIBERATORS, |
SUN AND CHIANG, DID TO CHINA?
Have you noticed lately that everything has two sides, especially the historical accounts of some of the bloodiest events. The current Google-maniac might have just triggered Asians' awareness of the monopoly on mass media by the West in the last century. It's time for us Asians to get back on some equal time to re-evaluate history from the Asian side.
This here is a summary rundown of what Sun Yan-sen and Chiang Kai-shek did to cause the SanPa(38-years) Atrocity in China between 1911 and 1949.
Sun, an American citizen of Chinese descent, initiated the third and final Christian Crusade in China, riding high on the two previous crusades by the Taipin Rebellion and the Eight-Nation Alliance. His approach is to liberate China by way of Christianity, leveleraging on the superior military powers of the foreign invaders. Sun even adopted a Biblical name, George, as in Saint George -- the dragon slayer. He thus became the role model for all Asian traitors.
Sun's 1911 Han's uprising, which overthrew the legitimate Chinese government, has resulted in the separatist movements in Manchuria, Mongolia, Taiwan, Tibet and Xingjian. After the Qing Dynasty was replaced by the self-proclaimed Republic of China, the 13th Dalai Lama, in 1913, expelled Qing's representatives and troops from what is now the Tibet Autonomous Region. And Manchukuo was soon formed in the historical homeland of the Manchus, who founded the Qing Dynasty of China.Yuan Dahua, the last Qing governor of Xinjiang, fled.In the Kashgar region in 1933, and the short-lived self-proclaimed East Turkistan Republic was declared.
Currently Tibet and Xingjian still have occasional anti-Han uprisings and Taiwan remains an outpost depot for America's arms.
Sun was known to want to become the leader of another Taipin Rebellion. He considered the leader of the Taipin Rebellion was the "Number One Hero of Anti-Manchu Rule". Well, in that Rebellion, 25 million Chinese died, just because someone claimed he was the brother of Jesus Christ.
Also some research have found Sun to be opportunistic toward Japan. Sun, in order to obtain support for his own revolution, traded in China's northeast region, or the Manchu's original territory, Manchuria, to Japan. This fact is compatible with Sun's sentiment of Eighteen-provinces plan to "Chase out Neighboring Barbarians" which advocate giving up Manchuria, Mongolia, and Tibet. In fact, Sun's Revolutionary Party, "Yantse River Midland", actually used an Eighteen-Province Flag. This anti-minority-ethnic view were since carved into many of the pro-West Sun followers, especially the Chinese Christian converts.
But luckily, Sun was as inept as he was evil. He personally did not do as much damage to China as his corpse did. His self-appointed heir, Chiang Kai Shek, used Sun's corpse, in a facsimile of America's Lincoln funeral procession, to advertise Sun as the "Father of China" in a train from Beijing to Nanking. This was to legitimize his inheritance from Sun to out China and mass slaughter the Chinese indigenous forces that were defending against the plague of barbarism from the West.
Sun Yat-sen has also caused a great schism of views between China and America and ironed a destructive misunderstanding that persisted til today. Most of the West's understanding of China has been from the perspective of how China could be turned into another America. This misguide America to expect what China is not.
Even though, most pro-Sun Chinese today still believe that Sun is a pioneering revolutionary in China, and claim that the Great Revolutionary, Chairman Mao, also affirmed that publicly. But, in Taiwanese author and former Senator, Li Ao's, private documents, Mao said: "Sun Yat-sen wont allow others to refute him, not allowing others to contradict him and suggest different opinions. Actually his words are dilute by water, containing very little oily substance, and very non-democratic."
Mao continued: "I say, 60 years ago, Sun could make a good emperor, when there is no democracy. When he enter a speaking hall, the whole audience had to stand up and calling out "Mr. Sun Yat-sen". He has no democracy; he has no knowledge; his ignorance has dropped to a low level."
In J. Fenby's book on Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, he noted: "An American traveler, Harry Francke, who did not share the usual disdainful Western attitude to China, wrote: 'The mercenary presence was just one symptom of the way in which Sun's revolutionary based in the south fell short of the vision he proclaimed for China...no province led a more miserable life than Canton under Sun Yat-sen... it was probably the most misgoverned city in China.'"
"Though they received up to $35,000 a day for food and upkeep, the mercenary stole from shops, took hostages, levied charges on railways, grabbed taxes, seized drugs -- one group advertised its narcotics in the newspapers. When his men complained about not being paid, a commander replied:'Since you have guns, why should you be short of rations?'"
"The city's 800 opium dens paid so much duty that the managers held a protest meeting at a teehouse."
"The chief Russian consultant "called Canton a 'veritable Babel'. Sun, he noted, 'is very backward. He judges very badly in political matters. He...often reasons in a simple way like a man on the street. He considers himself the hero and the others the mob, while...he is simply an enlightened little sadtrap.'"
The "Britain's Consul General, Bertram Giles, said of Sun:'One day, if he lives, he will rule all China. He's a fanatic, he's inconsistent, he's unpredictable and, from my point of view, he's a nuisance, but he's got the seeds of greatness in his soul.'"
Finally, Sun himself admitted it's a big empty mess. "'After thirteen years of revolution,'he said,' the Republic is just an empty name and, even today, the revolution is a complete failure.'
And on the other front of family relation, which is most relevant to the Asians, the similar behaviors of Sun were observed. "Even his close associates were disturbed by the way Sun consorted with prostitutes in Southeast Asia,' a historian of the clandestine revolutionary movement has written. 'That was the trouble with the old boy,' W.H.Donald noted. 'Couldn't keep him off the women.' He pursued a liaison in Japan from which a daughter was born, and invited what the Australian described as 'a large number of beautiful Chinese women' to join his railway inspection tour in 1912."
"Sun died in 1925. Though his memory would be hallowed by both Nationalists and Communists, his life had been, in the words of the historian C. Martin Wilbur, 'a sombre story of shattered dreams'. Its incoherence continued with a wrangle over the funeral. His second wife and son wanted a Protestant ceremony since he had died a Christian -- one of his last utterances was reported to have been:'Just as Christ was sent by God to the world, so God also sent me.'
But here is what Fenby described how his wife, Soong Ching-Ling, had difficulty with Sun. "Sun was a vague thinker -- this second wife of his would say he put together his pronouncements on the spur of the moment depending on the political context and his audience. He acted as a dictator within his movements, which was rent with factionalism."
From in-situ reporting,Sun Yat-Sen, according to Bertrand Rus, who was in China around the early 1900, "contributed nothing...except (abandoning) the pigtail". Well, that's when Sun was alive. But when he died, his corpse sure made him a big hit in China.
Sun's covert Christian crusades left China in such a chaotic and impoverished state that it caused untold suffering to the Chinese people. It threatened to convert the traditional old human-centered and culture-oriented civilization into one of modern material-oriented and God-center, free-for-all, every-man-for-himself jungle. To date, it is still a force to be contended with that pushes China's into the parade of might-makes-right international rivalry for economic and military superiority.
