The USA’s decades long warfare against China（一）
自冷战结束后美国发动的对共产主义中国的低烈度战争中， Robert S.Rodvik研究的第一部分就聚焦在美国与国民党政府三军总司令蒋介石的联手上。
In the first part of his study of the low-intensity warfare carried out by the United States against communist China since the Cold War, Robert S. Rodvik focuses on the U.S. collaboration with the nationalist government of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek. As a rabid anti-communist, Washington knew it could count on the Generalissimo to be more preoccupied with anti-Communist extermination campaigns than with resisting the Japanese invaders, and complicitly turned a blind eye to Chiang’s massacres and unbridled corruption.
自冷战结束后美国发动的对共产主义中国的低烈度战争中， Robert S.Rodvik研究的第一部分就聚焦在美国与国民党政府三军总司令蒋介石的联手上。作为一名狂热的反共分子，华府明白它可以指望这位三军总司令比抗日还要卖力地清共，所以整个华府不约而同地对蒋介石的大屠杀和放肆腐败视若无睹。
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek (L) appointed Allied Commander-in-Chief in the China theater in 1942, with his very influential wife, and U.S. General Joseph Stilwell (R) who served as Chiang’s Chief of Staff, and at the same time commanded US forces in the China Burma India Theater.
For as long as I can remember the US has been waging an undeclared war against China, the latter very lucky to have avoided being nuked when it joined North Korea in its battle against the Empire. Considering that millions of North Koreans were wiped out by the bombing, killing, murdering giant, its land devastated by the marauding monster, the mere fact that the Joint Chiefs were unable to get the OK to nuke China seems a rare non-happening of great importance. This doesn’t mean, however, that the US hasn’t continued its convert war to actually destroy communist China over the years. So don’t be surprised when that scenario actually comes into play; sooner, I believe, rather than later.
At the end of WWII writes William Blum, "The ink on the Japanese surrender treaty was hardly dry when the United States began to use the Japanese soldiers still in China alongside American troops in a joint effort against the Chinese communists." 
Blum was referring to US collaboration with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek and his Kuomintang (KMT) nationalist army and their plans to repel Mao Tse-Tung’s communist soldiers, at war with the rampantly corrupt KMT. Chiang’s nationalist army hoarded US aid monies, arms and material to such a degree that President Truman wrote that "the Chiangs, and the Soongs (were) all thieves" having stolen some $750 million dollars of US funds. 
To understand the role of the Generalissimo and the KMT in the long, tortured history of modern China we need to go back in time and examine Chiang’s monstrous role in the country’s development.
Dr. Sun Yat-sen was the respected leader of modern China and the early leader of the KMT. His death in 1924 led to a scramble for power, which, in turn, led to the head of the Green Gang triad, Big Eared Tu (Tu Yueh-sheng) succeeding Sun as leader. Tu was the undeniable head of opium trafficking in China and also the head of worker suppression for the Chinese elites and their foreign counterparts in the International Settlement who found labour turmoil as anathema to profit. In 1925 worker and student unrest was such that police from the International Settlement were called in and a British detachment "fired into the crowd killing twelve workers and wounding fifty others. This ‘May 30th Incident’ precipitated strikes, boycotts, and demonstrations," [resulting in the further killing of fifty-two protestors in Canton] murdered by "French and British machine gunners."  Big Eared Tu and his close drug trafficking sidekick Chiang Kai-shek were on their way to controlling all of China.
In February 1927 yet another worker’s strike took place in Shanghai and along with them student supporters were passing out leaflets on city streets. As Sterling Seagrave informs us in his valuable book The Soong Dynasty, "Police and soldiers fell upon them, dragging them into the middle of streets and beheading them on the spot. In the presumed sanctuary of the International Settlement and French Concession, British, American and French police arrested students handing out leaflets, and expelled them from the barricades into the waiting arms of warlord soldiers—who immediately beheaded them. Two hundred were decapitated that day...In an act of calculated treachery, Chiang ordered his army vanguard [alleged rescuers] to stop twenty-five miles outside Shanghai...The man whose troops carried out these beheadings, Li Pao-chang, was rewarded by Chiang a few weeks later with the command of the Eighth Nationalist Army." 
1927年2月，在上海发生了另外一起工人罢工运动，学生支持者同时沿街散发传单。如同 史特林西格雷在他宝贵的著作《宋家王朝》中告诉我们的，“警察和士兵冲向他们，将他们拉到街道的中央，并将他们当场斩首。”在租界假设的避难所里，英法美警察逮捕分发传单的学生，并驱逐他们穿过路障走向等待中的军阀的士兵------这些人立即将他们斩首。那一天有两百人被杀害......在一次有计划的背叛行动中，蒋介石下令他的军队先锋(所谓的救援人员)停在上海25英里外...... Li Pao-chang（译注：没有查到这个人是谁，熟悉的童鞋告诉一声，谢谢）的部队执行了斩首行动，数周后蒋介石奖励他为国名党第八军的指挥官。“
By now the Western leaders of the International Settlement were closely aligned with Big Eared Tu and the Green Gang with the French Concession becoming the heart of China’s opium and heroin trade-all of which was controlled by Big-eared Tu, Chiang, and the Green Gang. As Seagrave writes, "Each month Big-eared Tu was realizing profits of $6,500,000 and passing $150,000 of this on to French government officials and concession police to guarantee a happy working relationship between the Concessionaires and the Green Gang."  It also helped that the chief of detectives of the narcotics police was Green Gang honcho Pockmarked Huang (Huang Chih-jung). By now Chiang was the undisputed leader of the drug-dealing killer triad, as ruthless as any hoodlum in written history. As Seagrave informs us, "Chiang’s police record in the British-administered International Settlement grew over the years to include murder, extortion, numerous armed robberies, and assorted other crimes. He was indicted on all the listed charges, but was never brought to trial, or jailed." 
Shanghai 1927: Chiang’s execution squad beheading a communist worker.
April 1927 soon became infamous with Chiang’s ‘White Terror’ slaughters of leftists and communists (massacres that would accompany Chiang throughout his murderous career). Throughout April more than 12,000 were killed in Shanghai alone. Two Chinese scholars write that, "In the year after 1927, over 300,000 people died across China in anti-communist suppression campaigns executed by the KMT."  Other researchers estimate the deaths being in the millions, mostly in the rural areas where communists and leftists had retreated from Chiang’s terror.
Publisher Henry Booth Luce of Life and Time magazine fame (later the leading light, along with wife Clare Booth Luce, of the ‘China Lobby’) became an early apologist of Chiang’s butcher gang and of Chiang himself. In its April 25 edition of Time, Luce would have Time declare that the Shanghai Massacre was merely an example of Chiang "impeaching" the leftists.  As Luce was equally a rabid anti-communist I believe it is accurate to say that he was fully informed of the Generalissimo’s Nazi-like operations and therefore, with his defense of Chiang, approved of the massacres undertaken by Chiang and his KMT armies.
《生活和时间》杂志出版商亨利·布斯卢斯（后来和妻子克莱尔布斯卢斯一起成为”中国游说团“中的重要人物）以成为蒋介石屠夫帮和蒋介石本人的早期辩护者而出名。在4月份《时间》的第25期中，卢斯在《时代》上声称，发生在上海的屠杀仅仅是蒋介石“弹劾”左翼人士的一个事例罢了。因为卢斯是一个激烈的反共人士，我相信，准确说来他完全知道大元帅纳粹似的行动，然而最终随着他对蒋介石的维护，蒋介石和国民党军队执行了被许可的大屠杀。 Chiang, meanwhile, was extorting massive payments from all segments of society and T.V. Soong, Minister of Finance, was aware that virtually none of this money was going to the national treasury, most of it going into Chiang’s endless pockets. T.V. knew that he was "no match for a military man whose troops enjoyed disemboweling young girls and winding their intestines around their naked bodies while they were still conscious." 
The illicit partnership was consummated when T.V.’s sister Mei-ling (Madame Chiang) married the Generalissimo in a royal wedding in Shanghai. Chiang now had an inroad into the wealth of China via T.V.’s role as head of the Central Bank and Soong stood by helplessly as the silver reserves vanished into Chiang’s personal accounts. Another of T.V.’s sisters, Ai-ling, married wealthy industrialist H.H. Kung, principal agent of the Standard Oil Company of China. Both Kung and wife Ai-ling happened to be personal intimates of Big Eared Tu and FBI reports stated that she was responsible for the assassinations of family enemies.
Now, in the 1930s, Chiang became enamored with Italy’s Benito Mussolini and Germany’s Adolf Hitler. Thus, when Hitler came to power in 1933 Chiang asked him for help in his ongoing war with Mao Tse-tung and the communists fighting against the massive corruption of Chiang and his warlord armies. Hitler dispatched his top military strategist, General Hans von Seect and his aide Lieutenant General George Wetzell. Together they devised a ‘Scorched earth’ policy for Chiang and the KMT, which brought famine to the mountain populations that provided shelter for the communists. Historian Edgar Snow estimated that "in all a million people were killed or starved to death." 
1930年，蒋介石变得迷信意大利的墨索里尼和德国的希特勒。因此，当希特勒1933年掌权时，蒋介石向他请求帮助，帮助他战胜和毛泽东正在进行的，共产党人反对蒋介石及其军阀大规模腐败的斗争。希特勒派出了他的高级军事战略家， Hans von Seect 将军和他的助手 George Wetzell 中将。他们为蒋介石和他的国民党军队设计了一个“焦土战策”，这给为共产党提供避难所的山区人民带去了饥荒。历史学家埃德加·斯诺估计，“总共有一百万人被杀或因饥饿而死。“
Chiang became so enthralled with Hitler and the Nazis that he sent his younger son, Wei-kuo, to be schooled by the Nazis. As Sterling Seagrave reports, "Wei-kuo became a second lieutenant in the 98th Jaeger Regiment and before returning to China took part in the invasion of Austria in 1938." 
蒋介石变得如此沉迷于希特勒和纳粹，他派他的小儿子蒋纬国去接受纳粹教育。西格雷报告，” 在回到中国之前， 伟国成为第98狙击兵团少尉并参加了1938年对奥地利的入侵 。“
By now, Chiang, T.V. Soong, H.H. Kung and Big Eared Tu were entirely in charge of China’s opium and heroin trade. "Shanghai police reports indicate that in 1930 T.V. Soong personally arranged with Tu to deliver 700 cases of Persian opium to Shanghai under KMT military protection to supplement depleted Chinese stocks." 
Then in 1931 came the ‘Mukden Incident’ by which the Japanese contrived (Like the Reichstag fire in Berlin) a self-inflicted event thus allowing them opportunity to invade northern China (Manchuria) where it established a puppet state called Manchukuo. Chiang was not eager to fight the Japanese, preferring to continue his war with the ill-equipped communists in their mountainous retreats. Even within his KMT army an uprising against Chiang and his policies gave rise to the ‘Xi’an Incident’ whereby the despised Generalissimo was kidnaped by some of his generals and held in confinement till he agreed to opening another front to fight the Japanese. Chiang agreed, took the generals with him to Shanghai, then had them executed. Killing communists was far more important.
The Second Sino-Japanese War broke out in July 1937 and Chiang’s leadership led to the retreat of the KMT towards the interior city of Wuhan. Prior to their flight however, Chiang ordered General Shang Chen to destroy the dams around Nanjing in order to impede the advace of the Japanese army. This resulted in the "killing of 500,000 people in the 1938 Yellow River flood."  Barbara Tuchman elaborates further: "Eleven cities and 4,000 villages were flooded, the crops and farms of three provinces ruined, two million people rendered homeless, and in that vast and sodden wasteland another fund of animosity stored up against the Government."  As Sterling Seagrave notes, "General Ku Chu-t’ung, the author of the atrocity, was eventually promoted to commander-in-chief of all KMT armies."
