How did this happen

Chinks are retarded.

>>53603703
Chinese used crossbows.

>>53603867
no way

China had terrible, terrible logistics - they couldn't project their military power for shit. The size of China hurt them more than helped.

I just watched this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9mlfpl8p74
Apparently they were in fact retarded
Who do you get "taken by surprise" in such important port cities?
>>
>>53604095
Chinese had/have super egos, probably couldn't believe these tiny island nation had the balls to directly deploy troops and attack the MIGHTY KINGDOM UNDER HEAVEN. Which Japanese actually did, >absolute madman. Having a crappy decentralized government, horrible logistics, and practically non-trained pawns as their army resulted in them being unable to recover from such banter and wave the French flag. So yeah, "retarded" fits quite well. Daily reminder that Qing elite were literal barbarians.

Why were the Koreans always traded between China and Japan like a decent first rate whore ?
>>
>>53604791
finland never had any air superiority or some super advanced tactics on the ground or anything
soviet generals simply used that useless war, which they won anyway, to execute a bunch of convicts and soldiers from.. uzbekistan and kyrgystan and so on

you actually helped molotov and stalin and the friends win
red army carried some of the biggest combined arms campaigns in the entire history of warfare, if they actually wanted to wipe finland out they would have done it

is there anything worse that being a korean?

>>53604702
No. Emperors didnt rule in japan, their vassals did.
>>
>>53604601
Besides the limited strategic interest the Stalin had in certain Finnish territories as a buffer against Germany, was to continue his purges in the Soviet Union. High causalities didn't matter to him as long the war won, or rather, he prefer high casualties. Soldiers were simply unequipped for winter warfare. Also this >>53604870

While japan had its joke of a civil war, china was suppresing revolts,and fought the english and french.

It might be kinda hindsight,but i think naval power and morale had something to do with it,

Japan's brutality during WWII is actually what makes them such cool guys today. Focus just changed but they kept the honorabru traditional values (some are shit but most are pretty good) and dedication that allowed them to experiment with biological weapons on POWs. Also arrogance. But I'm not complaining on a Nipponger Japanimation instant messaging system.
>>
>>53605470
The war itself might've been a joke, but the reforms that followed weren't. Japan was half-western cunt by this point.
>>
>>53605470

This >>53605619 desu
The fighting wasn't long, draining, or remarkable, but the changes it brought because of who backed the war were. Japan went from China-tier to Euro/American-tier in the blink of an eye, suddenly abandoning asian tactics and mentalities for western ones, along with western training, and equipment.

Play Victoria 2 it will become clear

>>53605041

Their films that make it to mainstream America are usually pretty good; although they probably produce like 10x more terrible ones that don't even hit the Asian box offices.

An outnumbered force can soundly defeat any opposition given the right training, logistics and technology.

History is littered with examples of battles where a vastly outnumbered force destroys the larger and more confident, even only in making use of something like terrain.

Because the Qing leaders of Chinese wanted to stay in the past. They wanted the good'ol days back where China could just say fuck you to the world and still be the most civilized and powerful nation on earth. But the world was on China's doorstep with technologies they invented back in those "good'ol days" except perfected after years of tinkering by ambitious Europeans desperate in a 1000 year long was with Islam. When the Europe pushed the Muslims out of Iberia they were some of the hardest people the world had ever seen. They went to China and picked apart the dysfunctional Qing empire with their warrior culture forged from blood of millions of children killed by Muslims over the year, armed with superior weapons.

When they arrived the Chinese leaders were blind and told the world to fuck off. But they couldn't make them fuck off anymore so the Europeans defeated their outdated armies and technology.

Europe showed up at the doorstep of Japan as well but the Japanese were no fools, they too were a warrior culture from fighting with each other for years. They adopted the European technology enthusiastically. They really in a lot of ways threw the baby out with the bathwater and eliminated the samurai. They became as powerful as the Europeans. They too began to pick apart the Qing.

The Chinese could have done the same, but they didn't and they lost their place on top of the world.

Of course China didn't die. China took years and years but they came out of their roll under the thumb of the modern age just 20 years ago. Since then they have returned to their spot on top(only competing with a nation formed from Europeans who settled in the Americas known as the United States).
