Why didn’t they spread it to Japan?
Why didn’t they spread it to Japan?
Occupied by the US
Japan already a semi communist society because of the communal values but also reverence to the emperor (bigger issue pre-1980)
Japan was able to rebuild itself in about a decade
Communism only appeals to people who have nothing, ie high school students, people living in a chaotic bankrupt state, or oppressed people with no agency. When things are going well Communism doesn't spread.
likewise communism only really has a chance in poor and failing countries and Japan got a economic miracle after the war.
Why didn’t the Soviet Union take control of China, Korea, Cuba, etc and make them part of the USSR?
Do you have any idea how hard any of those one things would be to pull off?
they did control half of Korea
North Korea was originally their puppet state
China is just simply too big and have too many people
They just ragequit on Cuba after the crisis
They were already communist, so why annex them? The USSR could barely control their own lands and satellites in Eastern Europe, what makes you think they'd be able to control a billion Chinese?
This would escalate the Cold War to a warm one between the US and USSR
Was already a staunch ally of the USSR.
History isn't like a fucking Paradox game. Countries don't just annex every single bit of land they can. There are things called spheres of influence, read up on them.
Stalin did attempt, albeit poorly. Right after the end of the war, he instructed the JCP to pursue armed struggle, which did not go well.
As for Mao, dude hated japan, plain and simple. As for the Japanese maoists, they hated each other passionately. There was a jap maoist group that basically self-criticized itself into group suicide.
*blocks your path*
The Jews had less of a hold on Japan
God what a pro. This would be like some gopnik walking up to Lenin and beheading him.
Why didn’t the Soviet Union take control of China
It was full of a billion Chinese that would probably not allow that, and would probably lead to UN intervention
It would break the Moscow Conference, invasion would lead to war with US and UN
Would lead to war with US
The Japanese nipped it in the bud, with force and re-education:
"By 1933, the Japanese state had essentially destroyed both the Japanese Socialist Party and the Japanese Communist Party via mass arrests and Tenkō with both parties reduced down to mere rumps, which caused many Japanese student leftists to draw the conclusion that change was impossible in Japan, but still possible in Manchukuo"
"Even more active in going to Manchukuo were the products of Tenkō ("Changing directions"), a process of brainwashing by the police of left-wing activists to make them accept that the Emperor was a god after all, whom they were best to serve."
"Tenkō was a very successful process that turned young Japanese who once been ardent liberals or leftists who rejected the idea that the Emperor was a god into fanatical rightists, who made up for their previous doubts about the divinity of the Emperor with militant enthusiasm."
"One tenkōsha was Tachibana Shiraki, who once been a Marxist Sinologist who after his arrest and undergoing Tenkō become a fanatical right-winger"
"the Japanese communist movement virtually ceased to exist after 1935 with the arrest of its leadership and dissolution of supporting organizations"

Based Japs. That's the right way to deal with commies
Christ, it's almost as though some divine influence is shielding Nippon from the influence of ((()))
Nah. They were just willing to take a very hard line against subversive elements within their own nation and it's territories.
sometimes i think if karma was real, the human race would have been gone by now
but then i see photos like this again
bootlicking the conservative emperor is better than bootlicking a red emperor
Next reply I'm expecting "m-muh traditional values and submissive waifu :3c"
one of the most degenerate countries on earth
populated by soulles atomized bugs
shielded from the influence of ((()))
I don't watch anime. And if you want to slice away more than 2000 years of history and think that's more than equivalent to just becoming another gommie dump you are delusional.
I guess the post commie blocks and china are less degenerate (爆笑)
they just bought the favour of the jews during wwii. japanese leadership was so impressed after reading the protocols of zion that they offered jewish refugees sanctuary in exchange for economic assistance from the jewish elite.
Memorandums written in 1930s Imperial Japan proposed settling Jewish refugees escaping Nazi-occupied Europe in Japanese-controlled territory. As interpreted by Marvin Tokayer and Swartz (who used the term "Fugu Plan", "河豚計画", that was used by the Japanese to describe this plan), they proposed that large numbers of Jewish refugees should be encouraged to settle in Manchukuo or Japan-occupied Shanghai, thus gaining the benefit of the supposed economic prowess of the Jews and also convincing the United States, and specifically American Jewry, to grant political favor and economic investment into Japan. The idea was partly based on the acceptance of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as being a genuine document by at least part of the Japanese leadership.
The world is like EU4 and HOI4 the post
stop being 12
Castro's entire message was that he wouldn't be anyone's bitch and that Cuba is a sovereign state, and you think he'd let Russians annex Cuba? Are you retarded?
This should have been the first post.

yeah, just park those nuclear missiles on my INDEPENDENT, SOVEREIGN island bruh - what sorta FREE, LIBERATED country doesn't want to risk being bathed in nuclear fire on behalf of a superpower on the other side of the world that just views your island as a floating missile base?
You're a retard. All of the work needed to deter communism in Japan took place in the 1920s, this was sideshow that you're so obsessed with was just a flash in the pan.
The Great Depression and resulting economic hardships in the countryside was the closest Japan got to a Communist take-over.
There were tons of commies in post-war Japan. But they were hilariously divided among themselves. Each sect had their own marks on white helmets so they could tell each other apart when they were rioting.
Those missiles were actually installed on Castro's request, Russians were just eager to do it. Also if Quirk is to be believed, Castro was extremely buttmad when the missiles got removed.
But wasn't the Japanese Emperor eventually made to renounce his divine status by the American forces?
USSR invading China or the Japanese Home Islands
Fuck, can you imagine these clown shows? Soviet invasions of Japan or China would have been "What if 'I must unite the Russian people under one graveyard' wasn't a meme?" levels of suicidal meat grinder stupidity. Jesus, China?
Jews are this powerful, cunning, and benevolent to their allies
Guess who's converting ASAP?
Japanese had too high of an IQ and some semblance of morals.
