Why Xinhai Revolution Occurred 100 Years Ago This Month? (3)
辛亥革命100周年

13 October 2011
 

We love Manchu's Qing because Manchu rulers believed "the peace and development are the main trends of our time" and "war is no longer in fashion" (我们的时代是以和平和发展为主题的时代。战争不时兴了), so they spent military fund on civil projects, such as royal gardens.

We love Manchu's Qing because the military personnels of the Qing army had a freedom to wear fancy helmet and went barefoot.

We love Manchu's Qing because the Ming troops were so violent that they invented firearms.

We love Manchu's Qing because they dumped Ming's dangerous firearms for cool martial arts instruments.

We love Manchu's Qing because it made China a more open society where the military commanders of foreign countries could freely come to inspect their own troops.

The Eight Power Allied Forces lined up on Lugou Bridge to salute their command-in-chief the German general Alfred Graf Von Waldersee.

We love Manchu's Qing because it kindly allowed the Eight Power Allied Forces to occupy the Tiananmen Square when they visited China but failed to find hotels to check in.

1900, the Eight Power Allied Forces stationed in Tiananmen Square before dispatched by Waldersee to loot and burn Beijing for three days.

We love Manchu's Qing because it could get foreign troops to help them guard the Forbidden City.

1900, the Eight Power Allied Forces occupied the Forbidden City and turned it into a grazing ground for their horses.

We love Manchu's Qing because it could get foreign commanders to help look after the palace when they took holiday trip elsewhere.

1900, the Eight Power Allied Forces pose before an empty meeting hall in the vacant Forbidden City as the Manchu rulers fled the capital.

We love Manchu's Qing because it signed hundreds of treaties with the foreign powers that gave the Middle Kingdom great opportunities to help the world.

The rich countries that received the large amount of foreign aid from a poverty stricken China include Britain, America, France, Russia, Japan, Germany, Portugal, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Austria, Denmark ....

We love Manchu's Qing because foreign armies had a right to demand the Manchu government to execute Chinese they didn't like.

Manchu court sent Boxers to Market Place in Beijing to be beheaded as requested by their foreign masters.

We love Manchu's Qing because the military officers from the West and Japan were invited to view the head-chopping shows.

We love Manchu's Qing because even without the specific demand from foreign troops, Manchus still imposed strong law enforcement measures to govern their Chinese "subjects" which included the revival of the spectacular prosecution method long abandoned by Chinese: piecemeal killing.

The photo captured moment during a piecemeal execution. This Chinese woman was sentenced to death by the Manchu Court and her breasts were already cut off.

We love Manchu's Qing because it promoted new way to bury the dead which needed no land and polluted no air.

Under the Manchu butchers' knives, the Chinese woman was reduced to a pair of shoes soaked in blood, a skeleton and a basketful of fleshes.

Most anti-Manchu Chinese were died in same fashion, including the only survival son of the last Ming Emperor Congzhen. The prince changed his identity and lived his entire life as a village teacher while never participated in any resistance activities, yet that didn't helped him to escape his fate at his advanced age of 80s. Manchu emperor Kangxi ordered him to be killed by piecemeal cutting along with his entire family.

We love Manchu's Qing because its last emperor Puyi proclaimed to the world when he became the head of Japan's puppet Manchukuo during the WWII that Manchus were the descendants of Japanese ancestors and the subjects of Japanese emperor.

According to the testimony of Manchu elites, the core members of the Manchu tribes were a band of rovers from Siberian, later they were joined by the Mongols and other Tartar tribes vanquished by the Ming armies, as well as Chinese criminals trying to dodge the law, thus these people have no common ancestors to identify with and no place to call home, which may explain why many of them have trouble to stay royal to any nation or any faith.

This banner summarizes the key differences between the Ming Dynasty and Manchu's Qing:

Ming Dynasty: Never signed any treaties with any foreign powers to give away Chinese land or assets. When China was invaded (by Mongols and Manchu), Chinese emperors were the ones commanding the resistance wars, and in the end, when the empire collapsed, the last emperor committed suicide to perish together with his kingdom;

Manchu's Qing: Signed hundreds of treaties with dozens of foreign powers to give away Chinese land and assets. When China was invaded (by the West and Japan), Manchu emperors were the ones fled the capital and left the city to be looted and burned by the foreigners, and in the end, when the empire collapsed, the last emperor committed high treason to make the country perish together with him.
