An Open Letter to My Fellow Asians: My name is Joe Ching. I am a researcher of contemporary Asian history. Although I was born a Chinese and now am an American, but, in my heart, I am an Asian. I am here to present an Asian history based on Asia's own perspective. I especially would like to correct the history between Japan and China that the West has distorted in order to divide and conquer Asia. Our history is not tragic, but valiant. Our history is not about crying past grievances, but to illuminate our future splendors. Historically in Asia the greatest ambitions of our ablest leaders have been to unify us under one heaven, or 天下. And what we considered to be "under one heaven" are people with the same culture. These people all belong to the same large family. Therefore as an Asian, I consider Japanese and Chinese are cousins. Since Confucius planted the seeds of unification across China 2500 years ago, in 246 BC, the Qin Emperor unified China. Then the Mongols decided to join China in 1271, and later twice in 1274 and 1281 also tried to unify with Japan. Had not for the interference of kamikaze, the "divine wind", typhoon, Japan might have become part of China during the Yuan Dynasty. If that did happen, it might just be the Japanese, rather than the Manchurians, that were to take over China to end the Ming Dynasty, making China a part of Japan. And under Japan, Asia would definitely not have lost the war to America. But even if, just as the history had it, that the Manchu conquered and ruled China, Japan's intervention into China should be more traditionally interpreted as an act of the Asian unification, rather than what West claimed to be same as its own barbaric custom of colonization. More than that, it should be morally considered as a mission by a family relative to rescue China from an involuntary opium addiction, courtesy of the Jews and British Navy. No wonder Mao Zedong thanked Japan for "invading" China. Too bad the Westerners never understood Asia's tradition of cultural unification. So, they and many of their Asian followers misinterpreted Japan's sending troops to China as a ruinous colonization. But shouldn't Asian history be written according to Asia's own perspective? WESTERN DISTORTIONS: The Westerners and their Chinese puppets also solidified their distorted view for the purpose of dividing and conquering Asia. They have been found by today's historians, though little known to the general public, to have played some of the dirtiest tricks in history. They included: 1. America immortalized the first shot of Asian liberation fired by Japan at Pearl Harbor , as a "Day of Infamy" and has been trying to suppress the Asian liberation effort ever since. 2. The use of the forgery of Tanaka Memorial to poison the relationship between China and Japan as early as 1929. 3. They forever demonized Japanese army with the fabrication of the Nanking Massacre by China's Chiang Kai-shek, who timed it as a revenge for the humiliation he received in the Xian Mutiny at its 1st anniversary. 4. They blamed on Japan for the greatest man-made catastrophe, the Yellow River Flood of 1938, which actually was ordered by Chiang Kai-shek. 5. Under duress of unconditional surrender, they indulged in the unprecedented and unfair practice of singling out Japan for war-time sexual violations, known as the "comfort woman" abuse. Adding injury to insult, America sealed all these dirty tricks into history books with two abombs. These underhanded assaults on Japan by the Western forces were actually a repeat for China in Asia. China during the Qing Dynasty, while still the most advanced civilization on Earth, was smeared to be "backward and corrupt" by no other than Karl Marx -- the poor-man's oligarchy masqueraded as champion of the oppressed mass. Marx also claimed that the Chinese people had a "natural inclination for opium" in a New York Daily article to justify the Opium Wars. And his cousins, the Sassoons and Rothchilds, made Marx's claim self-fulfilling with two opium wars, sandwiched in between was a crippling Christian crusade called the Taiping Rebellion, much like what America did with the Tanaka Memorial to Japan. The result was a century-long opium holocaust lasted from 1839 to 1949, just as Marx has asserted that China deserved it. And it was during a period when the rest of the world had all outlawed opium. 38-YEAR LIVING HELL: The opium holocaust provided the perfect incubator of 38 years of living hell in China, from 1911 to 1949, that started right after the end of the Qing Dynasty and ended when Mao made China "stand up" again with his peasant liberation movement. Amid all the hullabaloos about revolution and Westernization fervors near the end of Qing Dynasty, quietly and coincidentally, both the Qing's Empress Cixi and her successor son died. And this once great dynasty faded away without a credible succeeding ruler. This event was not even been noticed in Chinese history, except in movies. In official Chinese history, the story was the other non-event called Xinhai Revolution, which overthrew the Qing Dynasty. It stuck, as is, in history since there was no sense to debate about a dying China. Most historians are more eager to help their new masters forge their own versions of history. Nevertheless, this little noisy revolution did wake up all the warlords and provincial governors to cut up China -- a feat that all Western powers had tried to do but failed. And the people who contributed to this accomplishment were naturally described by their private historians as heroes. However, based on the anti-separatist law in China today, all those warlords and governors should be thrown in jail, rather than be considered as revolutionary heroes especially when most of them were hunting Mao Zedong for being the lone champion of the oppressed Chinese people. Among these separatist revolutionaries was a Chinese American named Sun Yat-sen, who lived like George Washington and died like Abraham Lincoln, with Lincoln's famous funeral train processions. Sun promoted himself loudest with democratic skills he picked up in America and became the "Father of China". Sun's real aim was to turn China into a "Little America". Sun's successor, Chiang Kai-shek, a Japanese military officer and master of dirty tricks, then suppressed the impoverished Chinese mass so much so that made himself public enemy number one. However, anyone who uttered any negative news on Chiang was immediately awarded with an assassin's bullet. As a result, much of China's history today came from Chiang's own historians hired to praise him and cover up all his crimes. A major source of historical data was Chiang's diaries, which were penned by someone else, but contained only materials approved by Chiang. Chiang's long list of assassination candidates includes: Mao and family, General Tang -- defending commander at "Nanking Massacre", Chiang's own second wife -- for writing an autobiography, and Wang Jing-wei - a man of high integrity, who was called a "Han traitor" for being the head of Nanking government during Japanese occupation. Both Sun and Chiang were the opposite of Wang Jing-wei, who, incidentally, wrote Sun's memorable will to the Chinese people and was actually designated by Sun as his successor. Chiang was able to keep all his handy works shrouded in mystery, credited to his devout spy master, Dai Li. But before the curtain fell, Dai Li also must die a mysterious death. And both Sun and Chiang were rampant womanizers - copying the life style of the Westerners. Sun once proudly bragged that "next to revolution, my greatest love is women". And they like them young. Sun's record was eloping with a 14 year-old farm girl. And Chiang beat Sun to it by attempting to rape a 13 year-old girl -- the 2nd wife mentioned above. Fighting off rejection by her family, Chiang finally proposed marriage at her dad's funeral but gave her gonorrhea on their wedding night. When Sun attended their marriage ceremony, he remarked: "She looks so young!" What a pair of rivals, these two clowns! But what was most remarkable was that they finally all married the most respectable ladies of China, and made them "First Ladies". The ladies were actually daughters of a Christian minister dad. And Chiang had to convert to Christianity to get the girl. Well, not quite. Chiang got the girl, but then almost lost her during her effort to prostitute America's high political circles, trading her charm for military aids. She almost became America's First Lady should her affair with her new American beau, the 1940 Republican Presidential candidate， Willkie, work out should Willkie be elected President. But her sex-for-aids trading was still quite successful. Chiang's gang cheated out of America billions of dollars. Even the U.S. President Truman loudly scolded them as "bunch of thieves and robbers". But for them, since they willingly sold their souls to the Lord Jesus Christ and GOD, the reward they got in return, to become the world's first billionaire, should not be considered as excessive. By the way, another one of their sisters of this China's no.1 Christian family was naturally married to the richest man in China. Who says sex doesn't mix with fame, power and money. This Chiang's third, or whatever, wife, Song Meiling loved to tell people that:"I am really an American, except for my Chinese face." Ain't 'em all! Today, all the anti-China Chinese learn how to become reckless hoodlums from Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek. And they learn to worship everything American from Song Meiling. Taiwan is the best example. Opium, seasoned with the Christianity's original sins, delivered to the Chinese people the 38 years , or San Ba Living Hell between 1911 and 1949. Finally, Chiang's big break came from blackmailing Sun about a secret assassination Sun ordered. The ransom that Chiang finally received was to become the principle of China's no. 1 military academy, Huang Pu Military School. This propelled Chiang to become the Mr. Militarism in China. Chiang's tyrannical carry-ons finally caught up with him in a mutiny by his generals at the city of Xian. In the Xian Mutiny, he was forced at gun point to stop killing his own people and to start fighting the Japanese. This turned Chiang into the world's fiercest and most vengeful hater of Chinese people. Chiang, with America's full backing, killed up to 100 million Chinese -- 30 million by flooding the Yellow River that he blamed on the Japanese and 45 million in the Taiwan Strait War, in which weapons of mass-destruction, possibly even nuke cannons, were used to keep China's army preoccupied with defending the shore and away from going to the rescue of famine victims as they normally did. Then Chiang blamed it all on Mao's Great Leap Forward policy. One American journalist in the Yellow River area in China reported: "Mothers were exchanging babies so they didn't have to eat their own". What he saw was the "SanBa Living Hell" that history never recorded! Naturally, Chiang also needed to leave behind in China with his-story of an upside down history. After glorifying himself and Sun, he tried to convince all the Chinese and foreigners alike that Mao Zedong was the evilest murderous "commie bandit", a term coined by his wife, Song Meiling, in a speech to the U.S. Congress. And he put into history books that China was an impoverished and backward country. Exactly how impoverished was China? Chiang emptied and brought the National Treasury vault with him to Taiwan. And Chiang's men also took all the golds and the best of national antiques. And to make sure China stayed impoverished, America fought two exhaustive wars, the Korea and Vietnam Wars, against China, and then coerced the West to slap an "Iron Curtain" and "nuke fence" type of sanction on China. And how backward was China? America's media monopoly had reversed the truth and convinced the world that not Chiang, but Mao, killed more than 100 million of his own people. And China's communistic government was smeared as the most exploitative regime. But when China finally opened up to the world, we found it has been the most benevolent and harmonious country in the world. Unfortunately today, there are still a dangerously high number of Westerners and Asians alike who cannot re-wash their brains off the powerful propaganda, as well as the harsh experiences. The Sun-Chiang legacy is the greatest obstacle for China's revival. All these were feats initiated by the Jews and executed by the British Navy, then exacerbated by the Taipin Christian crusade and later reinforced by Asia's own Westernized vultures, the likes of Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek, suppressing China on behalves of their master, America, to destroy the mainstay of Asian civilization. ASIA REVIVAL: But Asia was too old to die so young! Two timely-tested old traditions came to the rescue. They were cultural unification and peasant liberation, respectively, carried out by Japan and Mao Zedong. Whatever others might want to called it, what Japan really did was cultural unification, even though the Westerners and their Asian supporters tried to brand it as a brutal Western-style colonization. The method Mao Zedong used to save China was the age-old tradition of peasant liberation, even though history recorded it as Marxist communist revolution. Why, Marxism tactics almost aborted the revolution in its cradle. Just look how much the Soviet Union had suffered from following the Marxist lie of the poor-man's oligarchy for more than a century. Mao just knew better, so he stuck to the good old peasant liberation. And as for the term "communist", it's totally redundant, since the Chinese peasants always think of themselves as communists. That's why China abandoned communism the minute the Western hostility ceased and the peasants are no more needed to further liberate China. And how many times has Japan had to re-iterate to the world her intended objective was "The Great East Asian Co-prosperity Sphere". Even as late as 2010, Japan's Prime Minister again called for the "East Asia Community" concept. Even though Japan failed the unification of Asia in WWII, she was successful in triggering peasant liberations in all of the Asian colonies of the West, except Australia which had already massacred all its natives. And in China, Japan contributed critically to prevent China from being sold out to America by Chiang Kai-shek as a puppet state. But, sadly, after Japan sacrificed everything to save Asia, at the end, she was not able to save herself. In China, Japan provided incidental sanctuary to Mao's peasant army that was nearly exterminated by Chiang Kai-shek in the arduous Long March. Then Japan also occupied all the sea ports around Asia mainland to blockade American weapons from reaching Chiang for mopping-up actions on Mao's peasant troops. And immediately after Japan lost the war, she passed the baton of Asia liberation to Mao in the forms of world's best artillery weapons, which allowed General Lin Biao under Mao, to win the first few table-turning battles against Chiang, that eventually expelled Chiang to Taiwan. After Mao liberated China, he carried the baton of Asia liberation to Korea, against the advices of many of his top diplomats and generals. And in Korea, it was the Chinese fighter pilots trained by the ex-members of Japanese air force that won the make-or-break air battles against America. And the exceptional Chinese artillery skills, that traced its origin to the Japanese army, might very well be a deciding factor in beating the America in Vietnam, when they were used to shoot down and capture the crown prince of America's Asian Pacific force, John McCain. Holding McCain as a hostage by North Vietnam caused America to hesitate in using the abombs and gave time for China to lure American President Nixon into the peace option with Pingpong Diplomacy. Japan was definitely an enthusiastic promoter of the Pingpong Diplomacy, as the whole thing could only become a celebrated world-wide news event when the supportive and influential Japanese media overwhelmed the initial objection of the Chinese diplomats and allowed the news to reach the severely ill Mao, who vetoed his diplomats' objection and invited the American pingpong team to China. It was as if Mao refused to go, in his death bed, just to wait for this tiding of peace. What Mao used was the good old one-two, two-punches and good-bad, two-cops trick of the Culture Revolution and Pingpong Diplomacy. The first cold, then hot, approach thawed America and finally put an end to America's winning streak of killing sprees since America's founding, at Vietnam. Mao later told the initiator of Pingpong Diplomacy, Zhuang Zedong: "You are even better than my best diplomats." No one could live forever. When Mao died he carried the baton with him to the grave. Too bad, Mao's son, Mao An-ying, was also sacrificed in the Korean battlefield. Now Japan is left to take care of herself. While, on the other hand, just as only to be expected, once Mao pulled his people out of the Jewish opium den, China quickly resumed her old position as head of household of the world. Unfortunately, Mao's successors are not Mao. Basking in their new gained prosperity and prestige, they handily ignored the plights of their cousin Japan, and little brother North Korea. So, it's hard to blame one Japanese, who had taught the Chinese to fly a plane during the Korea War, said later in disappointment that "Now, it's not the 'renmin', or people, any more , but the 'renminbi', or people's dollar bill". THIS IS AMERICA: Let me conclude this Asian history with a brief description of American history, since the struggle between Asia and America has lasted for more than 150 years and does not seems likely it would end soon. From the Taiwanese TV program, "Crucial Moments", a group of seasoned journalists researched into the plague epidemic in Europe and found that the plague did not ended in the 15th century, but lasted to as late as the 18th century, coincided with the founding of America. When the European colonists landed in America, they carried with them 4 centuries of negative impact of the plague that have turned them into savages. These wild animals in fancy human clothes formed the world's first military camp of a nation, dedicated to world domination. The formation of a new government was a division of labor between the southern conservatives and the northern liberals. The conservatives took care of the suppression and killing of their victims. The liberals schemed up a seamless propaganda machine to pave the way for the conservatives' conquests, enslaving and genocides. As history has shown us, America has always been able to seize the moral high ground in all their war crimes against humanity. It's only until recent, America has been considered the undisputed leader of the world. Today, China and Asia's rise is challenging this myth. But in its homeland, America is still complacently holding tight to the notion of "America First". How come? More than anything, it's Christianity. Just as during the early plague-struck days, the superstition of their Christian God had prevented a humanistic cure as the one effectively practiced in Asia, the Americans persisted in praising the useless God and blaming China as the source of the plague and everything else, most of which has been found to be wrong, but still ignored by most Americans, who are shielded from truths by saturation bombardment from the seamless propaganda machine. In the great migration to America, the Europeans did not bring the plague. Instead, they brought something even worse -- Christianity. Christianity was used to justify that the America natives were ordained by God to be exterminated and the African blacks, enslaved. Naturally, the Asians, who have lived nicely for five thousand years without any God, have also become their targets. Furthermore, if we want to look for a definitive motive for the WWII in Asia, it was the intolerance of Christianity toward Buddhism. WWII in Asia was a religious war between America and the Buddhist countries. And more than Buddhism, Christianity hated communism even more. It was considered as the cancer of the heart for China. Chiang Kai-shek, a Christian convert, made eradicating the Chinese communists as a God's sacred mission. This, later in World War II, became an excuse for Chiang's betrayal of China to America. Interestingly enough, today's Taiwan still inherits this excuse. Actually what historical facts have shown is just the opposite -- it has been the Asian Christian converts who have been the detrimental cancer tumors of Asia. By now it should be obvious: who are the real Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, as mentioned in the Christian Bible? They are Christianity itself, Plague, Gun and Propaganda. Once histories like ours start to be written, the Horsemen of Gun and Propaganda will be tamed. And modern medicine is getting a grip on the Plague. But when could we be cured of Christianity? Let's look at what happened in Asia. In Asia, history was considered worthy to be recorded when humans began to rely on themselves, rather than on some fictitious entity like God. This is because this fictitious history will not be understood and accepted by future generations. Asian civilization began 7018 years ago. But history only certified 4640 out of the 7018 years. This is because in those 4640 years, we have been able to not rely on God and became mature and responsible enough to answer to history entirely by ourselves. So, let's assume the birth of Christianity and the birth of Asia civilization happened to occur at the same time. This will allow us to estimate how many years delay it would take for Christians to mature from relying on a parental God to becoming their own responsible adults. All we need to do is to first figure out how many years it took the Asians to free themselves from reliance on God. It is: [Asia's age] subtract [Asia history's age], or 7018-4640=2378 So it took Asians 2378 years to evolve from God-relying pre-humans into no-God humans. From this number we can calculate the time Christians will also become their own full human beings. We just subtract the age of Christianity by the age at which Asian civilization matured. This is: 2378-2018=360 So, it will take humanity 360 more years to attain full control of our own destiny. Can we wait this long while risking ourselves on God's path to Armageddon? Too tough! That's why we Asians must "add oil" by taking matter into our own hands. Up to now, many world leaders are still not sure which one is worse -- the Republicans or the Democrats in America? And American leaders could care less about being modest toward their victims as long as there are still a few among them who are still being praised worldwide as heroes. The current American President Trump is a businessman, who thinks abombs are like money, the more the better. And many leaders around the world still look up to him. We are trapped in a dangerous world. Based on this theoretical analysis, we Asians could only accept the West's military ventures in Asia as an act of nature -- a storm of barbarism blown in from the West. Apart from this, there is not much need for further explanation and debate. Japan and China's ability to overcome the opium holocaust and subsequent difficulties in Asia, testifies to the resilience of Asia's culture and tradition. But to finally weather this storm of barbarism, all Asians need to work together to avert America's last desperate move -- WWIII. Heroes and villains of history have come and gone. We can worship or condemn them anyway we want. But we must not allow them to misguide us back to traverse the same tragic path they created by trampling on history. Asia has confronted America to turn around from warmongering competition to peaceful cooperation since their first encounter in 1854. Before WWII, Asia could only act at America's mercy. Up to 2017, Asia was still at America's beckon and call. In 2018, the Korea Peninsula challenged America and the verdict is still pending. But in 2020, Korea, Japan and China will dare America. ASIA'S FUTURE An Asian's life is timeless and space-less. It's timeless through generation lineage. It's space-less through marriage. Marriage is considered the union of two halves of the world, making life henceforth boundless. Generation lineage allows an Asian to believe he and his offspring are of the same one live, making him live only for the future. Our mission here is to strengthen the foundation upon which we build our future. This foundation is history. We need repair our history with lessons of the past. We should use Empress Cixi of Qing Dynasty's anti-trend behavior, of sacrificing her country in order to preserve China's culture and tradition, to start the lessons. Empress Cixi did try to Westernize China. But after a hundred days, she had to stop the process when she found out that many Western practices were wrecking the foundation of Chinese tradition and culture, upon which her own Manchu Monarchy had relied on to rule China. One example of such a cultural crash was the construction of China's first railroad track. Cixi had to order the railway disassembled because it trampled on the burial ground of our ancestors. For most of you Westerners and many Westernized Asians, this may seem incomprehensible, and a definite proof of Asian backwardness. But if we take another example from the Ming Dynasty's Admiral Zheng He's voyage, it might make you think that you, not the Chinese, who have the problem. Zheng He conquered the world. This is according to Gavin Menzies, a former captain of a British Nuclear Submarine. Menzies' claim was further substantiated by a bunch of Taiwanese sea adventurists, who built a Zheng He type of junk sailboat and travelled in it from Taiwan to reach America's West coast and back. Now, here is the real incomprehensible part. Zheng He's voyages around the world were ordered to stop by the Ming Emperor and his 28,000-crew fleet was demolished. But the most incredible part was that all of the invaluable intellectual properties that China could use to dominate the world were burnt and destroyed. The map Columbus used to get to America was one of the rare, leaked piece of intellectual properties. Well, too bad, the Confucius court mandarins, like Cixi, decided that colonization was not in line with China's tradition and culture. You see, Asian tradition only goes as far as: 1. Reunification is a must! 2. Cultural unification should always be the highest goal of all leaders. 3. And don't think tradition never innovates. In the recent 3 dynasties, China was ruled more than half of the time by minority ethnics -- Mongols and Manchus. The innovation is that minority rule should be preferred during cultural unification to achieve ethnic harmony. In Mongol's Yuan Dynasty and Manchu's Qing Dynasty, minority ethnics ruled China, which had more than 100 times the majority Han ethnics than the minority ruling ethnics. The Qing Dynasty was especially remarkable in that its monarchy actually first learned the Chinese culture before unified with China's failing Ming Dynasty. And harmoniously they made the whole country to live under the same Chinese culture. At the end, they were even willing to be pushed into oblivion in order the culture and tradition were preserved. Today, with the onslaught of globalization, small countries either unify, or perish. In order to share the vast Chinese market, the original Japanese concept of the "East Asia Community" is the only viable option for Korea, Japan and China. A not so trivial a bonus of this Asia unification is to finally get America off Asia's back. The unification of Asia should adopt a time-tested method of ethnic minority governance to achieve ethnic harmony as demonstrated by the Qing Dynasty North Korea, being the undisputed minority, and for what Japan owed Korea for Japan's WWII mischiefs, should be voted the top ruler. Being the country, least contaminated by Western barbarism, North Korea should be given the authority to guide the new Asia Family back to reviving Asian morality, culture and tradition. With Korea being the Minority ruler, it would leave Korea an option to preserve and protect her ethnic purity and reclusive tranquility. But most of all, minority rule will guarantee all minority ethnics' accessing the majority ethnics' market place and military protection. Japan, naturally, should be given the responsibility to bring all the family members up to the highest living standard in the world as herself, using her benevolent fascism experience. You see, fascism, is as much hated by the unruly Westerners as it is loved by the disciplined Asians. Actually, same applies to communism, because of West's selfishness and Asia's generosity. China should be asked, first of all, to keep America's military at bay from Asia, as her People's Liberation Army has been doing that since day one. But in the long run, China's new cultural innovation of communistic volunteerism should be fully developed and implemented to usher in the post-scarcity era of full automation and excellence in innovation. In conclusion, this is the hopeful future Asians should expect. The new Asia family should be ruled culturally by the minority tradition-bounded North Koreans, by way of cultural revival. The high-standard-living Japanese should make sure no one is left out from the good life, by way of technology and sport fitness. And the hard-working Chinese should volunteer everything else that Korea and Japan missed, with their die-hard communist spirit, by way of software automation. Finally on the practical front, Japan and Korea's crises of population aging fit squarely with China's inclination for filial piety. Aged wisdom will guide youthful exuberance to new frontiers in humanity's journey on Earth.
