Why doesn't anyone remember the US invasion of China?
Well it wasn't just the USA, we were part of a global alliance. Thousands of people died in battle, it was pretty sick.
I wonder why this isn't taught in American History ? US War vs China?
Oh yeah, because that's not what we call it. We call it something else. The Boxer
And look at how arrogant we westerners really are. The Chinese dared fight back against our imperialism and we called them "Rebels". What kind of
twisted double-speak backwards logic is that?? We were Invaders...
The Eight Nation Alliance was made up of :: USA, UK, Russia, Germany, Italy, Japan, France, and Austria-Hungary.
Year : 1898 -1901
Status : Ignored In American Public Schools and when mentioned, downplayed and smoke-screened with lies or half-truths.
Dead : Over 40,000 at least.
Why did the Chinese take arms? To oppose foreign Imperialism.
The uprising took place in response to foreign "spheres of influence" in China, with grievances ranging from opium traders, political invasion,
economic manipulation, to missionary evangelism. In China, popular sentiment remained resistant to foreign influences, and anger rose over the
"unequal treaties" (不平等條約), which the weak Qing state could not resist.
Look at this photograph, it's quite rare and impressive.
It shows soldiers standing side by side of the Alliance.

Ever seen anything like that before?
Check this "famous" but actually totally forgotten painting depicting the US Army at battle in Beijing.
Print(reprodution) of the origional "I'll Try Sir," U.S. Army in
Action historical painting, depicting the United States Army during the 14 August 1900 Allied Relief Expedition assault on the outer walls of Peking
in China during the Boxer Rebellion.
Further information about this event.
During the fiercely opposed relief expedition to Peking in the Boxer Rebellion in 1900, when two companies of the U.S. Army's 14th Infantry
Regiment were pinned by heavy fire from the east wall of the Tartar City and the Fox Tower between abutments of the Chinese City Wall near Tung Pien
Gate, volunteers were called for to attempt the first perilous ascent of the wall. Trumpeter Calvin P. Titus of E Company immediately stepped forward
saying, "I'll try, sir!" Using jagged holes in the stone wall, he succeeded in reaching the top. He was followed by the rest of his company, who
climbed unarmed, and hauled up their rifles and ammunition belts by a rope made of rifle slings. As the troops ascended the wall artillery fire from
Reilly's battery set fire to the Fox Tower. In the face of continued heavy Chinese fire, the colors broke out in the August breeze as the sign that
U.S. Army troops had achieved a major step in the relief of the besieged Legations. For his courageous and daring deed in being the first to climb the
wall, Trumpeter Titus was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
I know crazy right? I was never taught about the US invasion of China as a kid. They told us about the Spanish-American War and then skipped right to
WorldWar1. Well, this is what happened right after the S-A War.
And what did the Global Alliance of Imperialists do to the Chinese patriots who dared to stand up in the face of tyranny? They executed them.
This is the least graphic photo I could find.
You should see the photo where the Japanese were beheading them. It's on the Wikipedia page, but I will not post the photo here at ATS because it's
graphic. Here is the link. DISCRETION ADVISED! Graphic, View at own
There is far worse than this. Far more graphic.
Why do so few people actually know anything about this event?
Here is why friends. Because we have been lied to and tricked and mislead about our own history for ages. Certain things are covered up or ignored
while other things are focused on far more than they should be.
The Boxer Rebellion is an example of the NWO invading a resistant nation for imperialistic and profit based reasons. But aha! This Global Order of
Imperialist Nations were already in action over 110 years ago. Surprise surprise.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. This is nothing compared to what has been hidden or ignored.
I remember when the US Army teamed up with Russia and the rest of the gang to invade China. Do you?
If you didn't know about this, shouldn't you be angry with your leaders for trying to manipulate your perception of American military history? (Or
if you are from one of the other alliance nations - what about your history lessons?)
I don't know if this is taught in grade school in Europe or Japan, but I sure as hell know here in the USA it is largely ignored, downplayed, and
lied about consistently when it is brought up.
I could go on forever about the coverup of history and what has been hidden from us. I suggest everyone read the wiki article and do google searches
on the subject if they want to learn more about our Real History.
Maybe it's time the 8 nation alliance comes clean and apologizes formally and publicly to the Chinese people for what we did 110 years ago? I think
that would be a honorable thing to do, personally.
Enjoy the reading friends. I will add more if I see anything significant that should be pointed out.
