The Wuhan Gang, including Joseph Stilwell, Agnes Smedley, Evans Carlson, Frank Dorn, Jack Belden, S.T. Steele, John Davies, David Barrett and more, were the core of the Americans who were to influence the American decision-making on behalf of the Chinese communists. 
It was not something that could be easily explained by Hurley's accusation in late 1945 that American government had been hijacked by 
i) the imperialists (i.e., the British colonialists whom Roosevelt always suspected to have hijacked the U.S. State Department)  
and ii) the communists.  At play was not a single-thread Russian or Comintern conspiracy against the Republic of China but an additional channel 
that was delicately knit by the sophisticated Chinese communist saboteurs to employ the above-mentioned Americans for their cause The Wuhan Gang & The Chungking Gang, i.e., the offsprings of the American missionaries, diplomats, military officers, 'revolutionaries' & Red Saboteurs and the "Old China Hands" of the 1920s and the herald-runners of the Dixie Mission of the 1940s.
Wang Bingnan's German wife, Anneliese Martens, physically won over the hearts of the Americans by providing the wartime 'bachelors' with special one-on-one service per Zeng Xubai's writings.  Though, Anna Wang [Anneliese Martens], in her memoirs, expressed jealousy over Gong Peng by stating that the Anglo-American reporters had flattered the Chinese communists and the communist movement as a result of being entranced with the goldfish-eye'ed personal assistant of Zhou Enlai
Stephen R. Mackinnon & John Fairbank invariably failed to separate fondness for the Chinese communist revolution from fondness for Gong Peng, the communist fetish who worked together with Anneliese Martens to infatuate the American wartime reporters. (More, refer to the Communist Platonic Club at wartime capital Chungking and The American Involvement in China: the Soviet Operation Snow, the IPR Conspiracy, the Dixie Mission, the Stilwell Incident, the OSS Scheme, the Coalition Government Crap, the Amerasia Case, & the China White Paper.)

This webmaster had made Ryukyu into a separate section because Ryukyu was the only place where the Chinese emperors had exported the peasant labor and agriculture technology in the same fashion as the German farmers' relocation to Russia at the request of Katherine the Great. This is different from Han Emperor Wudi's dispatching the farming soldiers to western China during the Western Han Dynasty. Still another purpose of this writing is to dispute the prevalent mistaken interpretation of "liu qiu" as beling equivalent to the ancient Taiwan island. The ancient term of "liu-qiu" [in "SUI SHU" (History of the Sui Dynasty)], in this webmaster's opinion, was specifically referring to Ryukyu before becoming a categorical term for the islands in the southeastern Chinese seas. Below, this webmaster will use the travellogue to validate the point that "liu-qiu" [Ryukyu] was not necessarily Taiwan, but Ryukyu [Okinawa]. And, certainly, the topic of Ryukyu would bring out a deliberate American containment policy against China, i.e., a 1850s policy that passed down from the merchant-turned naval general Matthew Perry as well as revived in the U.S. transfer of the Diaoyutai Islands, i.e., the Japanese-pronounced Senkaku Gunto [Pinnacle Islands], to Okinawa of Japan in 1971.
Ryukyu was first mentioned in "BEI SHI" (History of the Northern Dynasties) as an island country in the East China Sea, which could be reached by sailing for five days. "BEI SHI" stated that Ryukyu was an island full of caves; that it had three circles of defence-purpose fences, with water flowing by the fences; that its king was named by Huan-si-shi, with a first name of Ke-ci-dou; it had 16 palace rooms decorated with inscription of the animals; that their people were in constant fightings with each other; that the various villages were ruled by a chief called by Niao-lian-shuai; that it had 4-5 marshals in charge of the various caves; and that they were cannibals eating the dead bodies of enemies and family members.

The Historical Confusion As To Name & Location Of "liu-qiu" [Ryukyu]
"BEI SHI" (The History of the Northern Dynasties) and "SUI SHU" (The History of the Sui Dynasty A.D. 581-618) recorded that the coastal Chinese people often noticed smoke or mist rising in the East China Sea during the spring and autumn time periods of the year and that Sui Dynasty Emperor Yangdi confirmed the identity of Ryukyu from a visiting Japanese emissary. In the 3rd year of the Daye Era, i.e., A.D. 607, Emperor Yangdi dispatched Zhu Kuan [i.e., "yu qi wei", cavalry captain] and Heh Man [i.e., "hai shi", sea master] to Ryukyu. Emperor Yangdi sent the delegation to Ryukyu in the hope of having the Ryukyu king submit to China as a vassal. The Sui Chinese failed to communicate with the Ryukyu people and abducted one aboriginal home for returning home. The next year, i.e., A.D. 608, Emperor Yangdi dispatched Zhu Kuan to Ryukyu for pacification again. The natives refused. Zhu Kuan grabbed some clothes and shields for the emperor. It was from the clothing materials that the Japanese emissary determined that those were from the people of 'liu qiu'. Zhu Kuan requested for an expedition to punish the Ryukyu king.
Back in A.D. 607, Wa Japanese King Duo-li-si-bi-gu, who was recorded to have an imperial clan surname of A-mei (? Ame, ? heaven), sent an emissary to Sui China, stating that they had heard that the new 'buddha' emperor west of the sea had revived buddhism and they would like to have a dozen monks study Buddhism in China. Emperor Yangdi at first refused to hear about the Wa State (Japan) because the Japanese king wrote the sentence "The Son of Heaven from the sunrise wish good health for the Son of Heaven at the sunset...." However, Emperor Yangdi sent an emissary, Pei Shiqing, to the Wa State the second year, i.e., A.D. 608. Pei Shiqing crossed the sea (the Yellow Sea) to Paekche, arrived at the Zhu-dao (bamboo island) Island, watched the Dan-luo-guo [? Jeju] statelet to the south, passed through the Du-si-ma-guo statelet, crossed sea [? the Japan Sea] again to the Yi-zhi-guo statelet, arrived at the Zhu-si-guo statelet, went eatward to the Qin-wang-guo (i.e., the Qin King's Country which was commented to be similar to the Chinese) statelet, travelled through another dozen countries to reach the coast of Wa Japan [? which moved to Honshu from Kyushu hundreds of years earlier]. Pei Shiqing recorded that the domain east of Zhu-si-guo belonged to the vassalage states of Wa Japan. The Wa King welcomed Pei Shiqing with over one hundred people, displaying the ceremonial courtesy and beating the drums and horns. Within the next ten days, the Wa King dispatched 200 cavalry to fetch Pei Shiqing at the outskirts of the capital. After arriving at the capital, Pei Shiqing and the Wa King exchanged gifts and tributes. The Japanese king asked another emissary to accompany Fei Qing back to China. It was from the mouth of this Japanese emissary that Emperor Yangdi confirmed the identity of Ryukyu, an island to the southwest of Japan. The Japanese emissary claimed to Emperor Yangdi that the cloth and shields that Zhu Kuan had grabbed from Ryukyu were from the 'Yi-ye-jiu' statelet.
Sui Emperor dispatched Chen Leng and Zhang Zhenzhou to Ryukyu. The two, departing from Yi'an, first sailed to the Gaohua-yu Island, then after two more days, sailed to the Xi-bie-yu [?] island in between, and then one more day later, reached Ryukyu. Among General Chen Leng's recruits from southern China would be a so-called "Kunlun" ["kun-nu", i.e., possibly the balck-skinned natives from Southeast Asia who used to perform stunts and magic for the Tang Dynasty court]. The "Kunlun" interpreter, whom the Chinese had brought along with the belief that he must know the islanders' language - as the Chinese classics repeatedly stated the Wa Japanese shared the similar customs as the natives living in southern China and today's Hainan Island, failed to subdue Ryukyu by persuasion. Chen Leng killed the Ryukyu king (Er'chidou), burnt down the palaces, captured thousands of the Ryukyu people, and brought them back to China.
Apparently, later chronicles from Sui Dynasty onward had possibly adopted the categorical term of "liu-qiu" [Ryukyu] for all islands in the seas, to the southeast of the Chinese coastline. Both "SUI SHU" and Zhao Rushi's A.D. 1225 book "Zhu [various] Fan [foreign countries] Zhi [records]" mentioned that "liu-qiu" [Ryukyu] was 5-6 days trip to the east of Quanzhou of today's Fujian Province, while the Penghu Islands (Pescadores) and Taiwan are in fact situated to the exact southeast of Quanzhou. In contrast, "Taiwan, an island beyond the Penghu Islands (Pescadores), could be reached after two days and nights of sailing [with stopver at the Pescadores] if departing from Zhangzhou and Quanzhou per Heh Kai's proposal to Ming Emperor Chongzhen in A.D. 1635. Note that from the Fuzhou port to Jilong [Keelung] of Taiwan, sailing would take 5 'geng' [if going straight to Taiwan without stopover], with 10 'geng' being equivalent to 24 hours. It is clear to this webmaster that the Ryukyu Island referred in the Sui records, unlike what historian Wang Zhonghan et als. had claimed to be a designation for Taiwan, meant for today's Okinawa, while the two stopover island happened to be the Diaoyutai Islands, i.e., what the Japanese called by the Senkaku Gunto [Pinnacle Islands] after taking possession around the timeframe of the First Sino-Japanese War. Details about the Ryukyu's midway role between China and Japan could be seen at "Japanese Piracy, Shogunate Tallies, Korea & Taiwan Island".
"MING SHI" lumped together about one dozen island countries or statelets, including Liu-qiu [Ryukyu], Luu-song [Luzon], He-mao-li, Mei-luo-ju [Malacca?], Sha-ya-na-bi-tan, Ji-long [Keelung, i.e., Taiwan], [Wenlai, i.e., Brunei], Ma-ye-weng, Gu-ma-la-lang, Feng-jia-shi-lan, and Wen-lang-ma-shen. Here, the distinction was made between Liu-qiu [Ryukyu] and Ji-long [Keelung, i.e., Taiwan]. "MING SHI" stated that Mongol Yuan Emperor Shizu [i.e., Khubilai] had tried to pacify Ryukyu but the emissary failed to deliver the message. (See the Taiwan section for details.)

In the phylogenetic tree Ryukyuans and Ainu were neighbors, but the genetic distance between them was larger than the distances between Ryukyuans and Hondo Japanese and between Ryukyuans and Korean populations. The geographic cline of the predominant haplotype in Ryukyuans, A*24-B*54-DRB1*0405, suggests that an ancestral population possessing A*24-B*54-DRB1*0405 moved into the Okinawa Islands after the divergence of Ryukyuans from the Ainu. Such a recent gene flow, probably from South China to the Okinawa Islands, is considered the major cause of difference in genetic characteristics between Ryukyuans and the Ainu.
Ming Dynasty Establishing Suzerainty Over Ryukyu
By the time Ming Dynasty's Emperor Hongwu overthrew the Mongol Yuan dynasty, Liu-qiu [Ryukyu] was said to have possessed three kings entitled by the "middle of the mountain" ['i.e., zhong-shan] king, "south of mountain" [i.e., shan-nan] king, and "north of mountain" [i.e., shan-bei] king. The three kings bore the surname of "Shang4". The three kingdom story of the 14th century sounds the same as the status quo of Ryukyu at the time of the Japanese invasion in the late 19th century when the U.S.A. offered to intervene by having China and Japan divide Ryukyu [Okinawa] into three parts, with Japan and Manchu China in control of the "south of mountain" Ryukyu and "north of mountain" Ryukyu, respectively. The middle segment, which bore the "middle of the mountain" name [or 'zhong-shan' in the Chinese pronunciation and 'nakayama' in Japanese], could be of a similar nature to a barbarian Di nature statelet among the Warrings States of North China 2500 years ago, namely, a county that derived the name for having a mountain at the center of the capital city. That is, the "middle of the mountain" Ryukyu could be named so because it possessed a mountain right at the middle of its capital city.
In Jan of A.D. 1372, Ming Emperor Hongwu dispatched Yang Zai to Liu-qiu [Ryukyu]. Liu-qiu [Ryukyu] King Cha-du sent over his brother Tai-qi with tributes. Emperor conferred the gifts of "da [grand] tong [unification] li [calendar]" and silk clothing onto the Ryukyu emissary. In the winter of 1374, Tai-qi came to the Ming court again. The Emperor asked minister Li Hao to offer cloth, 10,000 pieces of pottery, and 1,000 iron works. In summer of A.D. 1376, Tai-qi came back with Li Hao, and was offered 40 horses. The next year, Ryukyu sent in 1,000 grams of sulphur, i.e., Ryulyu's most famous native product. (Sulphur, pronounced "liu huang [yellow]" in Chinese, could possibly be the source of the name for Ryukyu.) The next year, King "south of mountain" sent an emissary to China with tributes, too. In spring of 1382, King "middle of the mountain" sent an emissary, and the Ming court escorted him back. The next year, the two kings asked for silver seals with gold embedding. Knowing that the two kings were fighting King "north of mountain", Emperor Hongwu ordered a ceasefire. Then the 3rd king, i.e., King "north of mountain", dispatched an emissary to China with the two other kings' delegations. In 1385, King "north of mountain" was given a silver seal. Two kings were granted a boat each. In A.D. 1390, the emissary of King "middle of the mountain" was caught with smuggled goods of 10 grams of spice and 300 grams of pepper. Once goods were confiscated at the capital, the Ming paper currency was given as compensation. In summer of 1392, King "middle of the mountain" sent a prince and a general's son to the Chinese capital for attending the Confucian Academy [i.e., "guo zi jian"]. Emperor offered the "overseas" students both the summer clothing and winter clothing. The next year, another general's son was sent to the capital. In spring of 1396, the succeeding King "north of mountain" sent an emissary to China. The Chinese Emperor asked students from "south of mountain" Liu-qiu [Ryukyu] to return to their country, but the students returned to China in the winter, apparently enjoying life in China more than on the island. King "middle of the mountain" sent over some female students. King "middle of the mountain" requested for conferral of the Ming court's costumes. The Emperor dispatched to Ryukyu 36 households of Fujian Province artizans who were good at building ships.
Emperor Huidi and Emperor Chengzu continued the relations with Liu-qiu [Ryukyu].

The Myth about the Ryukyu's Trusteeship with the U.S.
This was a myth. In Cairo, Roosevelt purportedly asked Chiang Kai-shek's opinions as to post-war Japan, including the revocation or retention of the so-called 'Tenno' system, the independence of Okinawa, etc. Chiang purportedly answered that Okinawa should be put under the trustee control of the United Nations. This discussion did not cover the Diaoyudao (Sengaku) - since the ROC never foresaw the PRC-Japan confrontation today, and when Taiwan was supposed to revert to China in 1945, the nearby islands, which were seized at the same time as Taiwan by Japan in the aftermath of the First Sino-Japanese War, should be returned as well - which was a common sense. The talk on Okinawa at Cairo was merely question and answer on an informal occasion, and Roosevelt never intended to give China any benefits, other than making China a puppet vote of the four voting members at the U.N. security council so that the U.S. could have a majority vote over the U.S.S.R. Why so? Because, days later, Roosevelt, at Tehran, already sold out China's interests to Stalin. The VENONA scripts already showed that the Soviet spies, every step of the way, surrounded Roosevelt and influenced Roosevelt on all decisions in favor of the Soviet Union. (The Soviet spies actually cut off the access of people to Roosevelt, with grand eunuch Harry Hopkins being the gatekeeper to make rulings as to who got to see Roosevelt and who could not.) At the exact same time, in Cairo, in the presence of Roosevelt's son, James, Stilwell and the Soviet spy were talking about killing Chiang Kai-shek, with Roosevelt's full nodding approval. You may refer to the memoirs by Roosevelt's son for this episode, at least 10 minutes' discussions about getting rid of Chiang and replacing Chiang with some more "manageable" person etc. Months later, Roosevelt sent a WWI ace to the Burma-India front to see Stilwell with the official assassination order. And it was one righteous American officer, who secretly tipped Chiang at the last minute that Chiang was to board a plane, that Chiang did not die in a crash setup. This is just one example to show how China (ROC) was betrayed by the "democracy" countries in WWII, not to mention the betrayal to the ROC in excluding China from the San Francisco Peace Treaty's signing. Today's Chinese, who were duped by the communist propaganda, would not understand the history's riddles unless fully acknowledging the facts as to how the wars [starting from at leasat the 1839 Opium War, through the 1904 Russo-Japanese War and to the 1937 Marco Polo Bridge Incident] were provoked and how the communists ascended to power in Russia and China.
Please refer to discussions at http://www.chinahistoryforum.com/index.php?/topic/34803-why-chiang-kai-shek-did-not-want-ryukyu
For one, Chiang Kai-shek had his strengths and shortcomings. One of the strengths that Chiang possessed was the Chinese intelligence service's successful deciphering of the Japanese foreign ministry's telegram codes in the 1930s. This was the work of Chi Buzhou, a Japan-returned student, who was able to crack the codes starting from the most common numbers like 1 ('yichi' in Japanese) and 9 ('nan' in Japanese). With this weapon, Chiang was able to read the Japanese foreign ministry's communications with their embassies and consulates in Moscow, and Honolulu, etc, till the end of the war. There were two sets of Japanese foreign ministry codes, the special and the common. The one that was deciphered belonged to the special code. (Whereas in the U.S., there was the so-called MAGIC deciphering project, which was a break of the common code of the Japanese foreign ministry.) Armed with this weapon, Chiang was able to pre-warn the U.S. about the possible attack at the Pearl Harbor and to pre-warn the British about the Japanese plan to sink warship Prince of Wales etc, and was able to foretell the signing of the Soviet-Japanese neutrality treaty, and other related info about Germany. This, however, was one-sided info that the Japanese communicated to their embassies and consulates in Moscow, Berlin and D.C. None of the thousands of telegrams deciphered touched on the secrets among Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin - because Roosevelt was sneaky enough to use the special direct under-sea cable to communicate with the counterparts. Hence, Chiang was always having a naivety towards Roosevelt - especially after learning that the U.S. representative to Moscow had adamantly insisted that the ROC should be given the status as one of the four powers. Chiang never knew that he would be stabbed in the back by the U.S., not to mention the knowledge of the existence of hundreds of Soviet spies throughout the White House, the State Department, the Army, the OSS, and etc. Chiang must know that the United Nations was the top dream of Roosevelt, i.e., Roosevelt's dream to be a world leader overseeing the united nations of the Earth. That's probably why Chiang sold the crap about having Okinawa become subordinate to the United Nations post-WWII.
There was one important episode recorded in Roosevelt's conversations with Chiang, namely, the Burma campaign and the promised aid to China. After Roosevelt left Cairo, both promises were broken. There was no amphibious landing in Burma, nor financial or military aid to the ROC, not to mention the assassination scheme. Some experts analyzed the records of Roosevelt's son, and concluded that it was within about half year before the Cairo Conference that Roosevelt had fully bought the opinions from the Soviet spies that Chiang should be rid of. Roosevelt, as this webmaster said elsewhere, was someone like a dowager empress, who spent 2-3 weeks in the warm springs, and then half a day dealing with the state affairs. The affairs of the United States government was run by the grand eunuch, i.e., Comintern spy Harry Hopkins. Nobody could see Roosevelt without the approval of Harry Hopkins. And, together with G Marshall, and Eleanor Roosevelt, the three were called by triumvirate. Should Roosevelt ever test Chiang about ceding Okinawa to China, it would be Roosevelt's subconscious attempt to compensate China for his scheme to sell China's Manchuria to Stalin.
Chiang, while ignorant of those schemes, still knew that he had to count on the U.S. against Britain and the Soviet Union, two ferocious countries which would do anything to intrude into and infringe on China's interests, both collaborating with the Chinese communists in sabotaging the cause of the ROC throughout WWII. Hence, Chiang thought he had taken the PREEMPTIVE STRIKE by proposing to Roosevelt that he would agree to have Port Arthur and Dairen be treated as the "international ports". This was recorded in the Yalta Conference. Unfortunately, China's fate of being bullied, and taken advantage of, by the powers, could not be reversed, even with the leadership of Chiang Kai-shek. That's what I called the spider's web. Otherwise, how could the British Empire be called the no-sunset empire for hundreds of years. China was doomed, and this webmaster don't see a way to have the course changed from the hindsight [other than Chiang's possibly refusing the British request as to transfering the Hongkong islands to China after defeating the Japanese so that the British would not have incentives to sabotage China for preventing China from recovering HK and achieving a strong position post-WWII).

This is an internet version of this webmaster's writings on "Imperial China" (2004 version assembled by http://www.third-millennium-library.com/index.html), "Republican China", and "Communist China". There is no set deadline as to the date of completion for "Communist China" (Someone had saved a copy of this webmaster's writing on the June 4th [1989] Massacre at http://www.scribd.com/doc/2538142/June-4th-Tiananmen-Massacre-in-Beijing-China). The work on "Imperial China", which was originally planned for after "Republican China", is now being pulled forward, with continuous updates posted to Pre-History, Xia, Shang, Zhou, Qin, and Han dynasties, offering the readers a tour of ancient China transcending space and time. A comprehensive version covering the 3000 years of ancient Chinese history, from 3000 B.C. down, with 3-5 times more materials than shown on this website and including 95% of the records in the spring & autumn annals ZUO ZHUAN, is expected to be made available on the Amazon website soon. The unforgotten emphasis on "Republican China", which was being re-outlined to be inclusive of the years of 1911 to 1955 and divided into volumes covering the periods of pre-1911 to 1919, 1919 to 1928, 1929 to 1937, 1937 to 1945, and 1945-1955, will continue. This webmaster plans to make part of the contents of "Republican China 1929-1937, A Complete Untold History" into publication soon. The original plan for completion was delayed as a result of broadening of the timeline to be inclusive of the years of 1911-1955. Due to constraints, only the most important time periods would be reorganized into some kind of publishable format, such as the 1939-1940, 1944-1945, and 1945-1950 Chinese civil wars, with special highlight on Km Il-sun's supplying 250,000 North Korean mercenaries to fighting the Chinese civil war, with about 60,000-70,000 survivors repatriated to North Korea for the 1950 Korea War, for example --something to remind the readers how North Korea developed to threaten the world with a nuclear winter today. For up-to-date updates, check the RepublicanChina-pdf.htm page. The objectives of this webmaster's writings would be i) to re-ignite the patriotic passion of the ethnic Chinese overseas; ii) to rectify the modern Chinese history to its original truth; and iii) to expound the Chinese tradition, humanity, culture and legacy to the world community. Significance of the historical work on this website could probably be made into a parallel to the cognizance of the Chinese revolutionary forerunners of the 1890s: After 250 years of the Manchu forgery and repression, the revolutionaries in the late 19th century re-discovered the Manchu slaughters and literary inquisition against the ethnic-Han Chinese via books like "Three Rounds Of Slaughter At Jiading In 1645", "Ten Day Massacre At Yangzhou" and Jiang Lianqi's "Dong Hua Lu" [i.e., "The Lineage Extermination Against Luu Liuliang's Family"]. This webmaster intends to make the contents of this website into the Prometheus fire, lightening up the fuzzy part of China's history. It is this webmaster's hope that some future generation of the Chinese patriots, including the to-be-awoken sons and grandsons of arch-thief Chinese Communist rulers [who had sought material pursuits in the West], after reflecting on the history of China, would return to China to do something for the good of the country. This webmaster's question for the sons of China: Are you to wear the communist pigtails for 267 years?
