UK and France:They were downfall by having lost the most of the colony.
Chinese Nationalist Party(Kuomintang):It lost to the CPC, because it was exhausted battling the Japanese Army.
USA:By Japan's and KMT's defeat, Manchuria and China were ruled by communists. This is also the causes of the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Roosevelt is incompetent.
I'm not good at English. If I make mistakes in my English, please pardon me.
It's exactly true. The US State Department was full of communist sympathizers at the time. In 1946 when the Nationalist Chinese were close to pushing the commies up and out of Manchuria, Truman sent Marshall to China to force them to sign a cease fire and make a "power-sharing" agreement with the commies. This saved Mao, who used the year of peace to reaarm with Soviet weapons from the North as well as Japanese weapons from Manchukuo, which they consolidated under their control. Of course the commies had no interest in power sharing and when the fighting broke out again in 1947, the US government placed an ARMS EMBARGO on the Nationalist government! Which was dependent since WW2 on American weapons and vehicles. The embargo went as far as small arms ammunition and spare parts for trucks. It was a disgusting backstabbing by piece of shit Truman and nothing else.
>MUH CHINA LOBBY
That's a myth and a bad one, Acheson was never soft on communism, and Kennan was Bae.
> Chiang ever beating commies
He'd probably do it with his army... Commanded by Chaing
There were no officers, just chiang.
Nope, all hospitals were run by and paid Chiang.
The man made himself the head of the bloody boy scouts for gods sake
>Mao did Manchukuo
>Nationalists dindu nuffin
There's revisionism and then there's puretardism. Not propping up the Nats is the ONE good thing Truman did in his entire presidency. Chiang and crew were infamously corrupt, murderous, and above all incompetent, which is one reason why the Communists won.
This is all wrong. The Chinese Communists defeated the Chiang Kai-Shek regime because because the Communists were in touch with the peasantry and common worker and was able to establish a complete takeover through the masses. The Korean and Vietnamese wars were caused by American occupiers dividing the countries without any right to doing so, setting up military dictators in their claimed corner, and circumventing the democratic processes that they claimed to be championing, leading to indigenous resistance.
The main Reason they entered WW2 was because of Japan Taking over China and giving the Middle Finger to the Open Door Policy
The whole "We wanted to Stop Hitler" thing became popular to lessen the embarassment

You sure about that? You sure it wasn't PEARL HARBOR?

The European theater was the one that FDR cared most about. More US troops went to fight in Europe than in the Pacific theater. FDR had LONG been in contact with his anglo counterpart and wanted dearly to intervene on their behalf due to close financial & diplomatic ties between the two countries. It's why he devised schemes like the Lend-Lease act to funnel aid to the Brits when a staunchly pro-neutrality congress was hellbent to stymie any legislation that brought the US closer to war.
From you post I think it's fair to assume this isn't a topic you've read many books about.
