A Banner troop with support militia could number 200,000 men

.........while 2 banners, could number 400,000 men without the "links to vested interest"!

Yet, after a short, probably "comical" battle -with support of the Manchurian-Chinese Revenue Merchant - with help from "puppet" Bureaucrats in Beijing, the Revenue Merchants managed to persuade the Qing Emperor to "sue for peace" - and give a real base to the British - Hong Kong, the sea base guarding the vital Pearl River Delta!

The British probably had the support of the "Ming Dynasty Secret Societies" as well!
The British know their facts well......
and could defeat a state, with a core of 200,000 "Banner Army", and up to 2 million militia forces that can be raised on Banner "purses"!

This detailed knowledge and support from Anti Manchurian forces allow the British to land themselves the key "beachead of the main revenue stream of China" - The Shanghai hub - this guards the key Yangtze Delta River!

That doomed the Qing Dynasty - and made China a "Arizona state" waiting for the "revival from the ashes, the rise of the new Phoenix - organized by the same "Ming Dynasty Secret Societies" operating in British Territories!

Ha ha ha

cheerios!

Support of the "hearts and minds" of your citizens is very vital

......in a state!

This history should be well learnt, by the Brazil, Mexican and Aztec States authorities!
The British Empire teaches us, A GOOD GOVERNMENT, is respected and loved even beyond the problems, barriers of skin colour, cult, beliefs, and classes!

That's how the British became the world largest, and the richest Empire, the world has ever known!
(Tsk, tsk, these, they learnt well from "ancient Chinese Empire methods"! ha ha ha)

cheerios!

The first "thought" of the Mexican, Aztec, Brazilian authorities

..........is "how to convert" the "cartels" from UNGOVERNABLE to "compradors"!

This is a "probably first step" - and find ways to "encouraged them to convert to more acceptable trade", where "state revenues can be collected" instead of the "illicit, citizen damaging trades" now being promoted by the CARTELS.

This was the FIRST LEARNINGS of the Qing Dynasty handling of the OPIUM WAR PROBLEM in the 19th century!

cheerios!

That's right.

The Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez and others are currently deemed as the most violent cities in the world due to the drugs cartel such as the Sinaloa Cartel. It's very usual to see news about tens of murders due to it.

In Brazil, specially in the state of Rio de Janeiro, in their slums located in urban hills, the drug dealers have controled them through corruption of the government officials and police officers

Inside Job

Greendragon,

I just watched the documentary "INSIDE JOB" about the 2008 economic crisis.

I was thinking that about the "inverse similarities" with the subject of this post, where the american SUPERCLASS in their wish to get super super rich started to organize themselves around 1970 to join in gangs called "Investment Funds" and now they sell toxic investments and "bribe" the u.s. government with billions in lobby.

The film makes us think about how the currently and future government will deal with the BANKING CARTEL.

Interesting!!
