an inch of blood, an inch of land
china's 2nd national protection war
Due to the sensitive nature of this committee as a WWII alternative history committee where the Japanese Empire won the war, we would like to clearly outline our expectations. As most of you know between 1937 and 1945, the Imperial Japanese Army and the government of Emperor Hirohito committed countless war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Chinese, Korean, Malaysian, Indonesian, Indian, and Indochinese peoples, as well as many others. It should go without saying, but we are saying it, we absolutely condemn these actions, and we will not be going down a path in any way imitating that of the Imperial Japanese Army or the government of Emperor Hirohito at this conference. There will be no “an eye for an eye” mentality in this committee. Your goal is to help the Chinese people, not harm the Japanese.
We would also like to outline that certain actions are strictly prohibited in front or backroom.
There will be absolutely no violence against civilian populations. They may not be real people, but civilians are not responsible for the violence of their governments or militaries.
There will be no attempts to use biological, chemical, nuclear weapons or weapons of mass destruction. As many of you know, during WWII, the Imperial Japanese Army’s exposed Chinese populations to diseases to test biological weapons, experimented on Chinese civilians and POWs, and the United States dropped nuclear bombs on Japan at the end of the war. These tragic occurrences, and there will be no attempts to recreate anything of the sort.
This is a world where all hope has ceased to exist. The year is 1962. It’s been almost two decades since Japan achieved its Endsieg in Asia. Every day, tens of thousands of tons’ worth of natural resources are extracted from China’s soils to feed Japan’s ever-growing military-industrial complex. Lu Han, residing in his governor’s palace in Kunming, is satisfied by the apparent economic successes he brought to Yunnan: in just a period of five years, his little kingdom has its economy quadrupled in size thanks to the sheer number of resources it possesses. However, what he failed to see is how much suffering his aggressive industrialization program brought to the ordinary people. His personal wealth has increased tenfold, while his people couldn’t even receive the most basic of education and healthcare. Overworking became so rampant that twelve-hour shifts became the new standard practice. The complete removal of the concept of working hours sounds not so unusual anymore…
Does China ever have a chance to rejuvenate itself and end this inhumane system of exploitation?
Again, this is a fictional committee that takes in a hypothetical world where the Axis won World War II, but no members of this Crisis Committee are Axis powers.
