APPENDIX III. WANG JINGWEI -- A LOTUS FLOWER IN A MUDDY POND In the upside down history authored by Chiang Kai-shek, Sun Yat-sen and America, there exist many negative terms that the present generation habitually referred to without questioning their authenticities. Let's question them now. Top on the list is the term "commie bandit", which have more than self-corrected itself to mean "liberators of the people". But other terms, such as "Han traitor" , "pseudo" and "little ghost", are not so lucky. Collectively, they refer to anything that was anti-Chiang Kai-shek. For instance, if we were still under Chiang's reign, after I gave this speech and you listened to it, all of us would become "Han traitors". Taiwan government, even today, probably still thinks of China as a "pseudo government". And the Japanese in most historical war dramas are "little Japanese ghosts". And the term "Han traitor" was especially misused, because Chiang Kai-shek used the term early on to accuse any of his generals whenever he appeared to be not hating Mao Zedong enough. Our very own Wang Jing-wei was the undisputed top Han traitor. But character-wise, he was also the political figure of the highest integrity in his time. "A lotus flower in a muddy pond" described the scene perfectly. Chiang has filled our heads with so much murky mud that made us see the lotus flower as something dirty. Wang was brought up a patriot and poet. His motto was: "If nobody wants to sacrifice, let me do it." So he started his young life with a bang. Answering to the call of revolution, he participated in the bombing of a royal carriage and was apprehended. Before being beheaded, he wrote:" 'Tis great to have led the knife upon my neck, so I can worthily sacrifice my youthful head" for my country and people. The presiding judge over this close-shut case of a head chopping for treason was so impressed with his poem and eloquent composure decided to let him go. And his integrity only strengthened his belief in his motto and finally got him into much deeper trouble. He became the guiding spirit of the upcoming misguided revolution. He wrote what Sun Yat-sen spoke. One most memorable piece of document that Sun, unfortunately, was not able to speak, but all Chinese hear it loud and clear, and would never forget，was, Sun's will. China, thus, became very flaky. When Chiang cut in line in front of Wang as the new leader of China, bullets, not words, ruled. As an insurance measure, Chiang allocated more than a bunch of bullets via a submachine gun to Wang, but only got Wang's right-hand man. And at the end, because Wang was made out to be a traitor by Chiang, Chiang was clean. The assassination occurred in 1938 in the aftermath of the alleged Nanking Massacre and horror of Yellow River's man-made flood. Wang was in a secret assignment by Chiang to negotiate a peace agreement with the Japanese. The meteoric rise in death toll of innocent civilians made it urgent for Wang to apply his motto: "If nobody would risk his reputation to be a traitor, I will" in order to save the Chinese people from the Japanese by way of negotiation. What's that they say about "nice guys always finish last?" But our nice and upright guy here was lucky and did the right-on thing. However, he was not saving the people from the Japanese, but from Chiang Kai-shek! Why, Chiang even borrowed the Japanese's bloody hands to kill more Chinese or as an excuse for killing Chinese. Besides crediting the Japanese for the Nanking Massacre and Yellow River Flood, Chiang use the same decoy tactics in the Changsha Fire and Chongking Bomb Shelter Disaster. In Changsha, Chiang filled fire trucks with gasoline to help putting out the fire. This time, unlike Nanking, the Japanese were repelled, even though the whole city was burnt down. In Chongking, Chiang once prayed for the bombing Japanese enemy up above, in the comfort of his living rooms, according to a visiting Canadian Minister who witnessed this and praised Chiang for this act of generosity by a true Christian. But also in Chongking, a massive tragedy occurred outside, when the bombs hit the entrance of an over-crowded bomb shelter. Anyway, according to an oversea Chinese, who later became the principal of the Xiamen University, in his visit to Chongking, Chiang's men were living it up with luxurious life style, even enjoying plenty of Japanese imports, which were banned in China, while the rest of the city had to face frequent bombings. And curiously, the hillsides were covered with pink and white opium poppies. In his haste to save lives, Wang Jing-wei probably never tried to second-guess Chiang and buried his head in the peace negotiation with the Japanese. Let's see what kind of peace agreement he finally obtained. He actually was able to get a good deal, as many in Japan, in actuality, were appalled that the Japanese army had invaded the Chinese mainland and sought an end. He negotiated the peace terms with the Japanese Prime Minister Prince Fumimaro Konoe, which included "no land annexation, no compensation, troops out of China in two years". The final terms were pronounced in his public telegram from Hanoi on December 29th 1938. The Japanese also trusted Wang as a man of integrity to let him have his own army, government and even intelligence service. But still, one crime nagged him on. That's his collaboration was allowing Japan to mobilize Chinese resources-including fighting forces-to take more Chinese lives. But that's a crime only from the Western perspective. From our Asian perspective, what he did was heroic, since he was helping Japan to liberate Asia. So the China's no. 1 traitor, Wang Jing-wei, in collaboration with Japan, had stopped America from encroaching into China Mainland, just as the Boxers before him stopped the 8-Nation Coalition from cutting up China. In the Boxer's case it was only after Qing's top diplomat, also an accused traitor, Li Hong-zhang, threatened the Western aggressors that he and all the Chinese people would turn into Boxers if they didn't stop the aggression. So today, to scare America's military out of Asia Pacific, shouldn't all we Chinese also volunteer ourselves, like Wang and Li, as traitors? To be a "Han traitor" is better than to be an "Asian traitor" any day! "HanTraitors" and "Commie Bandits" have been the greatest contributors to the salvations of China and Asia from the Westerners. In the future, whoever calls you a "Han Traitor" or "Commie Bandit", you call him back "Asian Traitor." Everyone should know that "Han Traitor" is the name that Chiang Kai-shek used to scold any Chinese who sympathize with the "Commie Bandits", not as much the Chinese who collaborated with Chiang's own beloved Japan. The "Commie Bandits" first made popular by Song Meiling in the US Congress to sell out China. Later, North Korea and Vietnam also suffered genocidal aggressions by America because they were countries of "Commie Bandits". Asia must exonerate Wang Jing-wei and Japan in order to wipe out the negative impact of Chiang's and America's upside down history out of our minds.
