This is a video clip from Chinese TV series Three
Kingdom's Warfare (三国演义).
One day, the most militarily powerful and politically
Kingdom (魏国) engaged in a showdown with the
most benevolent Shu Kingdom (蜀国) located in Sichuan Province.
And the armies were drawn up facing each other in a battle
After three rolls of the drums, Wei's consultant
Wang Lang came to the front with an attempt to mediate between
Weir's Commander-in-Chief Cao Zhen and Shu's Commander-in-Chief
Kong Ming (孔明, also known as Zhuge Liang 诸葛亮).
"We request the leader of the opposing
army to come out to a parley,"
his messenger called out in a loud voice,
At this, within the Shu army, in the centre
of the array, a four-wheeled carriage rolled out wherein
sat Kong Ming in white robe and black sash with a goose feather
fan in his hand.
Wang advanced forward and began a face-to-face
interview with Kong.
"I am happy to meet you, Mr. Kong. You
are a man of language talent, if you will turn down your
vocal weapons and throw aside your fan and come to serve
our lord, you shall not lose your rank. Is this not worth
for your to consider?"
Kong laughed, and said: "I have a word
to say that all the armies may hear. In the days of Emperors Yaobang and Ziyang the
rule of Han declined, the nation fell into confusion. The 82 exploded.
Because many government officers
were corrupt and foolish, living only
that they might feed, hanjian and their media
become the most profitable business in China, and tour guide
to lead the way for foreigners to raid Chinese graveyards
become a popular profession.
"I know all about you. You came from the south-eastern
seashore. You got into office with a sponsorship
from abroad; you aid the foreign power to trash
your own ancestral land. I have no trouble to imagine
that your gang now have entered into a plot to usurp the
Throne. Indeed your crime is great and your guilt heavy.
Heaven and earth will not suffer you. The inhabitants of
this land would devour you.
"You fool and hanjian! Mark you,
today is your last day. Get lost your mother's! Roll away
your mother's! Exercise your mother's!"
Fierce wrath filled the media guy's breast.
With one despairing cry Wang Lang fell to the earth dead.
