National war (Nov 17, 2022)

Prayer Request:
On the day of the discussion, Guangxi took the lead in deciding to participate in the war of resistance. Without hesitation, Li Tsung-jen immediately sent an urgent telegram to Chiang Kai-shek, saying, "Now that the Central Committee has made up its mind to fight against Japan, we have vowed to support it to the end. Chongxi immediately obeyed the order and waited for the dispatch. I myself will stay in Guilin for the time being to plan the mobilization of the whole province. As soon as I have a clue, I will go north and work together to drive." Although Li Tsung-jen and Pai Chung-hsi were enemies of Chiang Kai-shek for many years, at a time when the country and the nation were in danger, they complied with the will of the people without hesitation, responded to the call of the Central Committee, and went to the national crisis together. Later, Pai Chung-hsi, as deputy chief of staff of the Chinese army, made great contributions to China's victory in the War of Resistance Against Japan. Li Tsung-jen and Tai'erzhuang annihilated tens of thousands of elite Japanese troops, causing a sensation at home and abroad, and becoming famous in the history of the War of Resistance Against Japan. Like Li Zongren and Bai Chongxi, a group of local generals, such as Liu Xiang in Sichuan, Longyun in Yunnan and Erma in Qingning, resolutely stopped splitting and fighting at home when ancient China was facing many disasters and difficulties, and took the initiative to send a telegram to the whole country to invite Miao to fight against Japan. This effect of national unity is the total outbreak of anger and awakening in the chest of an ancient country with a long history after being bullied and humiliated by foreign enemies for hundreds of years. Chiang Kai-shek was also shocked by the towering flames. At this moment,silk cherry blossom tree, he understood a wise saying: Water can carry a boat, but it can also overturn it. Chiang Kai-shek strengthened his confidence in a comprehensive war of resistance. On August 8, Chiang Kai-shek issued a "Letter to the Officers and Soldiers of the Whole Army in the War of Resistance Against Japan" in Nanjing, claiming: "This time, the Japanese army vigorously invaded our country, engaged in despicable fraud, seized our Peiping and Tianjin by trickery, burned,artificial cherry blossom trees for weddings, killed and plundered our compatriots, reduced Tianjin to ashes, and reduced Peiping to a Japanese nest. This is a great shame for our nation and an unprecedented change in Chinese history. To this end, the officers and men of the whole army should foster the spirit of five points: first, the determination to sacrifice to the end; second, confidence in the final victory; third, using intelligence and mobility to cope with the situation; fourth, unity between the army and the people, love and sincerity; and fifth, holding the position and advancing without retreating. Once Chiang Kai-shek has made up his mind to resist Japan, he can never bypass northern Shensi, the Communist Party of China and the Red Army. Since 1935, the Communist Party of China has repeatedly appealed to the whole country to stop the civil war and unite to resist Japan. Over the past two years and more, the views and just cries of the Communist Party of China have awakened the sleeping countrymen, fake ficus tree ,large ficus tree, from ordinary people to celebrities from all walks of life throughout the country, from the Nanjing military and political authorities to officials at all levels of the Kuomintang Army, more and more people agree with and support the views of the Communist Party of China. The anti-Japanese and national salvation movement led by the Communist Party has set off an overwhelming historical torrent throughout the country. In the Xi'an Incident, Chiang Kai-shek was almost washed into the gutter of history by this uncontrollable torrent. This time he was awakened. As far as Chiang Kai-shek's own rule was concerned, he naturally hoped that the Red Army, like the warlords in various parts of China, would collapse under its distant friendship and strong political and military pressure. However, as a result of years of pursuit and suppression, the Red Army was not destroyed, but the Japanese seized the opportunity to break into China's backyard step by step. What the Japanese wanted to see most was that the situation of China's civil war would continue and that China would always be in a state of division, so they repeatedly forced the Nanjing National Government to sign a treaty with them to defend the Communist Party. What Tokyo and the Emperor of Japan feared most was the re-formation of a national anti-Japanese United front in China and the emergence of a nationwide anti-Japanese war in China. Chiang Kai-shek also knew the truth of this, so at the last moment of Japan's large-scale invasion of China, after Chiang Kai-shek had a deep hatred for the Japanese, he naturally thought of joining hands with the Communist Party of China and the Red Army. In addition, Chiang Kai-shek was very selfish by nature. He could not watch his own army and the Japanese army fight to the death on the battlefield while the Communist Party of China and the Red Army were still sitting on the mountain in northern Shaanxi to watch the tiger fight. He wanted to pull the Red Army into the chariot. In fact, as early as the winter of 1935, Chiang Kai-shek had the intention of establishing a national anti-Japanese United front. In November of that year, the five national congresses of the Kuomintang were held. At the meeting, for the first time, Chiang Kai-shek put forward the view of "the last moment" and decided that "sacrifice" should be limited to "not infringing on sovereignty", "otherwise, we should obey the orders of the Party and the state and make the final decision (to resist Japan)". The policy of the Kuomintang began to change. But at that time, Chiang Kai-shek meant to "incorporate" the Red Army and "solve" the Communist Party by political means, which was naturally unacceptable to the Communist Party of China, which insisted on independence and autonomy. However, Chiang Kai-shek did not give up. Through the Soviet ambassador to China, he asked Stalin to persuade the Red Army to recognize the central government of the Kuomintang. At the same time, he sent important officials to Moscow to contact Pan Hannian, the delegation of the Communist Party of China to the Communist International and its main representative, on the issue of Kuomintang-Communist cooperation in anti-Japanese negotiations. Mao Zedong naturally supported Chiang Kai-shek's proposition of establishing a national anti-Japanese United front. At the beginning of 1936, Zhou Xiaozhou and Lu Zhenyu, the representatives of the Communist Party of China, were ordered by the Central Committee of Northern Shaanxi to negotiate with the Kuomintang government in Nanjing. Chen Lifu, the leader of the Kuomintang negotiations, sent Zeng Yangfu and Chen Xiaocen to conduct preliminary negotiations with the representatives of the Communist Party of China. Unfortunately, Chiang Kai-shek misjudged the situation at that time, believing that the "encirclement and suppression" campaign against the Communist Party of China and the Red Army was nearly successful, so he refused to concede a step in the negotiations. When the Communist Party of China proposed to organize the National Defense Government and the Anti-Japanese United Army, the Kuomintang negotiators insisted that the National Government was the National Defense Government and the Kuomintang Army was the Anti-Japanese United Army; When the representatives of the Communist Party of China put forward the proposition of stopping the civil war and uniting to resist Japan, which they had consistently adhered to for many years, the Kuomintang negotiators did not answer the proposal, but in turn demanded that the Communist Party of China stop the agrarian revolution, stop the class struggle, stop the activities of the Soviet Area and abandon the armed riots that overthrew the National Government.. The first attempt by the Kuomintang and the Communist Party to form an anti-Japanese United front failed, but this attempt, after all, opened the door to dialogue. In July 1936,Faux cherry blossom tree, the Second Plenary Session of the Fifth Central Committee of the Kuomintang was held in Nanjing. At the meeting, Chiang Kai-shek once again explained the "last moment" and "minimum" to the whole country. Compared with the past, Chiang Kai-shek's attitude of resistance is clearer and his wording is more intense. This progress of Chiang Kai-shek was almost immediately welcomed by northern Shensi.
