Why have the Chinese historically always been so bad at war?

No.11659472 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Even going back to antiquity, chinese "victories" are like
>we want this greek city in bactria
>they have better horses than all of china
>let's send 30k men to take the city
>they failed
>send 240k men to take the city
Like, I get that stagnating military theories from literally every group in the region aside from steppe nomads all fighting in more or less in the chinese tradition is a big problem, but the baseline chinese tradition also seems to be bad

Germanic heritage of Italy

No.11624750 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Why did the Germanic tribes not leave a genetic impact on the Italian Peninsula despite historical evidence of Germanic settlement and migration to the region? Is there a historical reason behind it? Was the constant Byzantine attempts at conquering the Italian Peninsula behind it?

Why did the world abandon Rhodesia, Biafra, and Katanga? Africa would have objectively been better off if these states still existed

2nd sino-jap war

No.6926181 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Why did the japanese sperg out and try to conquer the shit out of everyone during the 1930s? They just simply thought territorial expansion was good for japan? It seemed completely random aa japan was basically isolationist for most of it’s history. Was is because they finally united as an island?

Also- why was china so weak for so long and then finally became a military threat after ww2? China’s military seemed like a joke until after the war, when we all know they eventually became a superpower of sorts?

Historical examples of Japan or Japanese being anti-Indonesian

No.13474347 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I love Japan and hate Indonesian. Seeing Japanese blindly love Indonesia and Indonesians makes me sad, simple as.

While a lot is discussed about the Imperial Japanese Army deserters who joined the Indonesian 'revolutionaries,' there were also a significant number of Imperial Japanese Army soldiers who fought against them on their own accord. Pic related is one of the largest incidents.

There also was apparently a Japan-led anti-Indonesian organization called "Joint Organization of Defense
by Asian Nations" (JODAN) that was made in response to Indonesian expansion

However I can't find any more information about it outside this paper... any help in that field would be appreciated, as would any other instances or recommendations.

I'd be particularly interested in any positive relations between Japan and the Dutch East Indies between the 1870s and 1930s. Japanese military attaches to KNIL, for example.

Am I the only one who thinks there's a connection between president gonzalo, jim jones and pol pot? I dont mean in the tinfoil sense, that they were IRL connected, worked together, were all CIA projects. I mean ideologically: the communal life, the disdain for everything "modern" ie; capitalist- borguise. the idea of communal family rising of children, of course ALL land held in common, etc.
