On September 1, Poland demanded $1.3 trillion in World War II reparations from Germany.

After being reported by many media, this incident quickly became a hot search.

Under the news, a netizen asked: “what about China? In World War II, China suffered the most from Japan. Can we also claim war reparations from Japan?”

But I’m sorry. The history I’m going to tell today may be a little sad and humiliating. Please prepare paper towels first.

In the war of resistance against Japan, the total number of casualties of Chinese soldiers and civilians was as high as 35 million, and all kinds of losses were converted into US dollars, which amounted to more than 100 billion.

For such a deep disaster and heavy losses, Japan should have made corresponding war reparations to us after the war. However, the reality is that China did not get a single point. However, even the Philippines, Myanmar and Indonesia received hundreds of millions of dollars in reparations.

Why is it that China, which has suffered the most, can not even get a cent?

In fact, this should be “attributed” to Chiang Kai Shek.

This is because Chiang Kai Shek gave up on his own initiative.

Of course, speaking of this will certainly make many “Chiang fans” and “Republic fans” uncomfortable, and they will scold me for spreading rumors.

How could Chiang Kai Shek have done such a shameless act of betraying the country?

You must be talking nonsense. If you become a king, you will lose the enemy. You can’t put all the excrement on Chiang Kai Shek just because he lost!

Well, that’s right. I don’t argue with these people.

I just want to invite them to visit a place.

Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

For a short time, Japan is different from our country. People’s counties are higher than cities in administrative divisions.

All right, go on.

You can go to Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.

There, the Japanese built the “Zhongzheng Shrine” and the “monument to praise Chiang Kai Shek’s virtue” for Chiang Kai Shek in return for his “kindness to rebuild”.

So, what exactly did Chiang Kai Shek do? The Japanese actually wanted to erect a monument and build a temple for him?

In fact, I do not need to say more about this.

Because when you go behind the so-called “monument of repaying good for evil”, you can see it.

In the inscription, Chiang Kai Shek’s four “merits” to Japan are described:

1. Keep the Japanese imperial system; 2. Renounce war reparations to Japan; 3. Oppose the partition occupation of Japan by many countries; 4. Safely send Japanese prisoners of war back to China.

See? The inscription is very clear. If you don’t believe it, you can go to Japan and have a look.

The Japanese have built monuments and temples for him, so it’s impossible to talk nonsense, isn’t it?

We all know that erecting a monument and building a temple is a great merit. It can be seen that Chiang Kai Shek’s status in the eyes of the Japanese is really not generally high.

However, Japan is an aggressor. As a Chinese, the higher his status in the eyes of the Japanese, the worse his image in the eyes of the Chinese.

The more they will be spurned.

Next, let’s talk in detail about how he, Chiang Kai Shek, gave up the war reparations to Japan step by step.

After the victory of the war of resistance against Japan, at an international conference to discuss war reparations.

As China, which suffered the longest and sacrificed the most, naturally demands a larger proportion of Japan’s total compensation.

At that time, the Kuomintang government represented China at the meeting. They insisted that Japan should receive 40% of the total compensation, but other countries did not agree with the division of the compensation proportion, only agreed that China accounted for 30%.

On the specific distribution ratio, various countries have been arguing endlessly, and the problem has been dragged on and on, and has not been solved.

Later, when the civil war broke out, the Kuomintang government did not have the heart to consider the issue of compensation at this time, but instead focused all its energy on fighting the civil war.

The first discussion on war reparations was aborted in this way.

By the way, speaking of this, do you still remember the four so-called “merits” behind the stone tablet in front of you?

1. Keep the Japanese imperial system; 2. Renounce war reparations to Japan; 3. Oppose the partition occupation of Japan by many countries; 4. Safely send Japanese prisoners of war back to China.

Keeping the Mikado system was an American demand. The national government at that time needed American support to fight a civil war, so it naturally agreed to this.

Second, we are talking about war reparations. Let’s skip it first.

Let’s take another look at Article 3. We oppose the multi regional occupation of Japan by many countries.

What does that mean?

Many people don’t understand, ah, multi regional occupation, does China still have the right to station troops in Japan?

Of course, we have this power.

Just as Germany was divided into East Germany and West Germany after its defeat, the United States and the Soviet Union occupied it in different regions.

After World War II, Japan’s treatment of the defeated country was also intended to occupy it by regions at the beginning.

It is mainly divided into four parts.

The United States, the Soviet Union, Britain and China all have a share.

Think about it. If we had really sent troops to Japan at that time, it would have lasted until now.

Does he dare to be rampant in little Japan now? Do those militarists in China dare to come out and jump around?

Lend him a hundred courage!

However, in the end, this power was given up by Chiang Kai Shek himself.

What, you asked me why?

It’s very simple. In the civil war between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party, should we not send troops back to fight the Communist Party?

Look, the civil war takes precedence, and the Kuomintang still does that. If there were no Xi’an Incident, could old Jiang really resist Japan?

They always hold in high esteem that the first thing to do is to settle down at home.

This is Chiang Kai Shek, this is the Kuomintang. Open your eyes and see clearly.

That’s all for the third one. Then, the fourth one.

Safely send Japanese prisoners of war home.

Some people say that this is not a very normal thing. The two countries have not killed the envoys in the war. Are we going to bury all the prisoners of war alive if we don’t send them back safely?

Of course not.

It’s just that Chiang Kai Shek’s “safe” approach makes people feel sick.

Let’s talk about one person first. Everyone knows Okamura Ningji, right?

As the commander-in-chief of the North China front army of the Japanese invaders, he was the inventor of the famous and unparalleled “three lights policy”. At the end of the war of resistance against Japan, he also served as the commander-in-chief of the Japanese dispatched army to China.

This means that he is the highest leader of the Japanese army in China.

When Japan surrendered in 1945, he personally led the Japanese invaders to surrender to the Chinese government and signed the letter of surrender in Nanjing on September 9.

It can be said that such people are proper war criminals, class a war criminals in class A.

Even people like Kenji DOI and seihiro ITAGAKI were hanged.

As their immediate superior, how can this Okamura Ningji not die?

Therefore, after the war of resistance against Japan, he was listed as the top war criminal in the list of Japanese war criminals published in Yan’an at that time.

However, history has made us such a joke.

He was not dead, not only not dead, but yoshiji Okamura returned to Japan unharmed. In 1957, he served as the president of the Japan Association of rural friends and died in Japan on September 2, 1966.

The little devils can “die”, and the culprits like this can escape hanging?

This is really hard to understand.

In fact, it’s very simple. I owe it to one person – Chiang Kai Shek.

This Okamura Ningci bar should have been severely punished, but because it was sheltered by the national government, it was not sanctioned by law.

The reason is very simple, because yoshiji Okamura once submitted a secret letter to Chiang Kai Shek, explaining in detail the experience gained from fighting with our party over the years, and analyzing the tactics and shortcomings used by our party in combat.

Moreover, he also ordered the Japanese army to accept only surrender to the Kuomintang army, giving the Kuomintang army the opportunity to occupy territory and big cities.

Therefore, in order to “thank” him, during the war of liberation, he was employed as a military adviser to Chiang Kai Shek and participated in planning the invasion of the liberated areas.

In January 1949, when Shi Meiyu was tried by the war criminals court of the Japanese army invading China, he announced that “the defendant, Ningji Okamura, was acquitted”. This was actually Chiang Kai Shek’s intention. The court’s judgment was just a formality.

In April of the same year, Okamura returned to Japan.

Yoshiji Okamura, who was acquitted this time, was grateful to Chiang Kai Shek. After returning to Japan, Yoshihiro Okamura found masaro Chengtian and Jiro shikawa, began to recruit old Japanese soldiers to form a “white regiment”, and then went to Taipei to help Chiang Kai Shek consolidate the defense on the island and rebuild the military forces of the national government.

In 1950, Okamura Ningci was employed as a senior instructor of Taiwan’s “Institute of revolutionary practice”.

Later, when the artillery battle broke out on August 23, the white regiment also participated in it.

So when you see this, you should understand.

Why did Chiang Kai Shek let go of yoshiji Okamura so leniently?

It’s very simple. It’s still to fight the civil war, to seize territory, to fight the country, to maintain his rule.

Having said that, let’s continue to talk about compensation for the next two items.

Isn’t the first discussion on compensation a temporary miscarriage?

But after all, if Japan is defeated in the war, there must be some symbolic compensation first.

Thus, two years after the publication of the Potsdam Proclamation, on June 28, 1947, representatives of China, the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union gathered together and decided to divide the Japanese naval ships equally by drawing lots.

China has drawn the second order, that is, seven destroyers, four escort ships, 13 cruisers, seven minesweepers and three transport ships of various types, a total of 34, with a total tonnage of more than 3.5 tons.

Starting from July 1947, this group of warships arrived in China in four times.

At that time, everyone was very happy that we could finally have our own navy.

What surprised everyone was that these 34 warships were the only compensation Japan had made to China since the bloody war of resistance against Japan 14 years ago.

This is the reason why Chiang Kai Shek is willing to accept these warships. It is needless to say that everyone understands.

These are all weapons and equipment that can be used to fight wars.

If you can’t fight, what about those gold, silver, jewelry, antique calligraphy and paintings when you flee to Taiwan?

Of course, it was transported by warships!

Later, it was 1951.

By this time, Chiang Kai Shek had already defeated Taiwan, and he was in a corner.

The people’s Republic of China has been established and is the only legal government in China.

However, the people’s Republic of China was not invited to the San Francisco Conference held on July 12 to discuss the peace treaty with Japan.

The reason is very simple. At that time, the Korean War had already broken out.

The meeting, held in San Francisco, was dominated and manipulated by the United States.

At that time, China and the United States were hostile countries, and the two countries were at war.

How can you, China, be invited to participate in this meeting to discuss how to solve the Japanese problem?

Even later, in the draft peace treaty with Japan drafted by the United States, China was not included in the list of countries that fought against Japan.

On the one hand, China and the United States are at war.

On the other hand, in order to contain the Soviet Union and the expansion of communism in the world.

Of course, there was also the most crucial reason: at that time, North Korea was erupting, and the United States wanted to restore Japan’s sovereignty and join the anti Communist ranks by urging Japan to conclude a peace treaty and lift its military control over Japan as soon as possible.

Americans do not want to see a broken Japan.

What they want is to see a strong Japan that can stand in front of the Soviet Union and China and help them fend off bullets.

If China is really called over, Japan can not afford so much war reparations.

If Japan is destroyed, what good will it do to the United States?

Therefore, at the San Francisco Conference, the Americans directly excluded the Chinese government.

The new Chinese government, of course, was very angry. Premier Zhou immediately took the floor to accuse the United States of unilaterally convening the “peace treaty meeting with Japan” in disregard of history. It had reneged on its international obligations and China would not recognize it.

At the beginning, Chiang Kai Shek’s attitude was the same, and he was very angry. At that time, he accused the San Francisco Peace Conference of “undermining international faith and cannot be tolerated”.

But later, out of consideration of the actual situation, because they had withdrawn to Taiwan, they were always under pressure from the other side of the strait for the reunification of the armed forces. In order to gain the support and help of the United States, Japan’s original positive position on the issue of compensation changed from acting according to the face of the United States, and even at the last, they did not hesitate to sacrifice the interests of the country and the nation, saying that they could reduce or give up all at their discretion.

Moreover, there is another point that Chiang Kai Shek felt that once Japan regained sovereignty and signed a treaty with the mainland, his reputation of “representing China” would be dashed.

Finally, in February 1952, in order to gain the image of the so-called “legitimate government of China”, the Taiwan authorities completely abandoned Japan’s war compensation to China and the interests of the whole country and nation.

Before the signing of the San Francisco Peace Treaty, Chiang Kai Shek signed the Japan Taiwan peace treaty with Japan and voluntarily gave up the right to ask Japan for post-war reparations. The $21.6 billion that Japan had planned to repay to China was abolished.

On March 25, the Chiang Kai Shek government included the following words in the draft Treaty: “Japan recognizes its obligation to make compensation, and we also recognize that Japan is unable to make full compensation. For this reason… We declare that we renounce the demand for compensation by labor.”

Moreover, on April 28, the Taiwan authorities also established so-called “diplomatic relations” with Japan.

This is history, this is the whole process of Chiang Kai Shek’s giving up Japan’s reparations.

This is also the real reason why the Japanese built monuments and temples for him.

In fact, if you think about it carefully, how long will it be enough for the Chinese people to eat according to the standard of Poland’s claim against Germany this time?

More than a hundred years ago, Li Hongzhang made the Chinese people pay one or two silver coins each.

A silver or two is almost equivalent to 10000 yuan of current purchasing power.

Of course, who wants Japan and the United States to have a good relationship? The Japanese yen is too cheap. We will calculate it in US dollars.

Now, if you can still apply, I hope that each Japanese can also compensate us $10000.

Japan’s total population is 126 million, which is 1.26 trillion US dollars.

How many people, on average, are there in every Chinese?

It’s almost 6000 yuan per person.

The key is that this money is still what we deserve. It is what we have left after suffering.

It’s just a pity that we won’t get this money back, and we’ll never get it back.

This is because Chiang Kai Shek voluntarily gave up this right on our behalf.

Now that China and Japan have established diplomatic relations and normalized their relations, we can’t get this money back at the official level.

However, compensation at the civilian level, including claims for comfort women, continues.

It’s just that there are many difficulties.

During the war of resistance against Japan, Japan stole 7 billion cubic meters of wood, 200 million tons of metal mines, 1 billion tons of coal, 2100 tons of gold, 3.6 million cultural relics, 30000 pieces of oracle bone inscriptions

There are still statistics, and if there are no statistics, it is simply impossible to count.

In the early years, we could often see “Chiang Kai Shek forever” on the Internet, worship Chiang Kai Shek’s diary and so on, and say: “Chiang Kai Shek is also a great man, but he met a more powerful chairman Mao, who is also great”

Using Chairman Mao to elevate Chiang Kai Shek is because Chairman Mao is great, so Chiang Kai Shek only lost to him, and he is also great.

Such an argument is nonsense.

Chiang Kai Shek, a feudal, narrow-minded, even traitorous, bureaucrat capitalist spokesman who only planned for the honor of one family name.

Naturally, there is no comparison with the proletariat and Chairman Mao.

Chairman Mao is great, but what does this have to do with Chiang Kai Shek? Chairman Mao defeated many people in his life, and MacArthur also lost on the Korean battlefield. Can you say that MacArthur is also great?

In the past, you said that Chiang Kai Shek was good. I think you are stupid, which is understandable.

But if today, after reading this article, you still boast about the eternal lies of Chiang Kai Shek, you are really bad.

And it’s the kind that’s really bad.
