You really wanna make heads explode? Remind folk that Chiang Kai-shek was educated in the USSR under Stalin, that the Kuo Min Tang had many active and loyal Communists within its ranks, and that the KMT was, in most important respects, little more than a Soviet puppet until Chiang purged the Reds.

Chinese history of the period is not at all simple. But we’ve got a lingering case of the simplifications.
