With so many foreign barbarians committing these atrocities over this period of time
it's no wonder any leader of Chinese resistance couldn't simply say
"Stop, this is terrible, all you bad people and all you Chinese who have been corrupted by
these bad people stop doing what you have been doing!!!"
All these comfortable people sitting in their libraries today can take pot shots at Mao and the CCP
but they can also conveniently ignore this part of history.
If a foreign invasion is beheading your fellow citizens  just to rape your country and your women
are you supposed to retaliate with boy scout like tactics?
Mao was no saint but he couldn't have been and led the Chinese to victory.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The American Empire was very careful in both the Atlantic and Pacific strategies.

The idea for using the Japanese Islands as Coaling station was the main for Commander Perry BLACK SHIPS visit to Japan. The Americans help set off the Meiji reformation that ultimately made Japan a viable military power.
