how they won the war

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 15, 2005

Photo caption from China's People's Daily:

Pictured here is the ceremony for Japan's surrender to the allied forces held on the "Missouri" warship in Tokyo Bay, on Sept. 2, 1945. After 14 years of heroic struggle and bloody war, the Chinese people, under the banner of the Communist Party of China-initiated anti-Japanese national united front and using backward weapons and equipment, defeated the powerful enemy which was stronger than China in terms of economic strength and military equipment, and wrought the miracle of defeating the imperialist power by a weak semi-colonial country.

And, remember, they instituted freedom of religion.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I never thought that the Chinese would name a warship after a US state. I doubt that any US warships are named "Qinghai" or "Sichuan." Meg, Although Mao et al. didn't conquer islands or drop atomic bombs on Japan, remember that most of China's major economic areas were occupied by Japan from 1937 to 1945. Japanese killed millions of Chinese. Chiang Kai-shek and Mao Tse-tung both fought against Japanese occupation, although Nationalists and Communists dominated in different parts of China.

    Ohhhhhh, I seeee, it was the ChiComs that won Midway, fought over all those islands, and dropped the bomb. Boy, are our Yankee Capitalist textbooks wrong! Truly, that was a miracle.
