I hate the Communist Party chapter 170
“I think you can see what they are thinking when they look at me. Words are sometimes here by themselves even if they don’t come out of the mouth.”
Ito continued, pointing to his ear.
“Because there are times when I will stop by here. And I guess the right time is then. Probably these are your thoughts. Is the prime minister’s current spirit intact? Or maybe I’ve gone crazy with the heavy burden that has been going on for years. The fact that the plan has already been approved by the Majesty mentioned earlier is that the Prime Minister, who has become insane, has created it at will, or is it that he only believes that way. Well, they must be words like this.”
Most of the members of the cabinet gathered here are not only politicians that have gone through the wars, shards movements, and the Meiji Restoration since the last John Hwang-yang movement, but also on the battlefield.
In other words, managing their facial expressions meant that they failed to hide their emotions from revealing their faces, even though they were easier to do than eating.
The reason Ito continued to serve as prime minister was also because others refused to sit there.
However, it was also because there was a shared perception among other factions that there would be no one who could maintain the status quo even if it was not Ito who could not get through the current situation.
And because of that, the situation was even more shocking.
Regardless of the faction, the person who took the position of prime minister to overcome the crisis based solely on their abilities was to take the whole of Japan as a stake and jump into a gambling board with a significantly low probability of winning.
“Yes, the Prime Minister. Can you honestly prove that your Majesty you just said has already been granted permission?”
“What if there is no such thing?”
“If there is no such thing… … .”
The army minister took the pistol from his waist and put it on the desk.
“The main thing to do is to arrest the prime minister, who is trying to push the Japanese empire into the pit of ruin because it is crazy.”
Even Taro Katsura, the head of the Choshu Clan’s army like Ito, said this and pressed Ito.
Considering that the Daishin Katsura usually responded positively to the expansion of foreign territories, it was possible to see just how vain Ito’s words were.
As the words between the two came and went, tension lingered in the conference room.
It was a moment in which the case of the prime minister who was arrested and dropped from his position, rather than the first voluntary resignation after the Meiji Restoration, could occur.
The time when the prime minister and the army minister face each other without avoiding their eyes, knocking on the desk, or swallowing only.
In fact, it wasn’t even a minute later, but the moment when Katsura decided that an eternity of time passed and the prime minister was obviously mad, reached out to the gun he put on the desk.
“Huh, huh. Could it be until you say that. Now, here you are. It’s a permission document with your Majesty’s Scepter that you wanted so much. Please check it out.”
As if the tension up to now was a lie, Ito suddenly laughed like a loving grandfather and received Katsura’s colorfully decorated paper from the attendant and looked like a different person.
This is because, if you were a politician who had seen the side of madness hidden in his hobby, he now looked like a grandfather who talked to the local children in a leisurely manner after retirement.
The army’s gaze at Ito, whose mood suddenly changed, was complicated.
“Is this the letter?”
Katsura grabbed a piece of paper from Ito’s hand and read it, with eyes as if Ito had written some number in the letter.
And as he began to capture the letters in his eyes, Katsura’s face quickly passed by various emotions.
First from disbelief, then from doubt, from surprise to resignation.
The other ministers who watched Katsura Army’s expression change from the side have no choice but to feel it now.
What Ito just said was that it wasn’t a lie or a fake he made out of madness, but that it was officially received by the emperor they serve.
“I look forward to all the ministers who will follow the orders given by the Emperor himself. I’m sure you haven’t already forgotten the attitude when you drove out the shogunate. To say that you don’t follow what the Emperor commanded is like missing the shogunate, the legacy of the past.”
“… … so. What is the specific implementation plan of the Prime Minister’s plan?”
Katsura’s tone of opening his mouth while laying down the paper was weaker than before.
This was because I had no choice but to carry out the crazy plan Ito had just said.
To him, who has a strong opportunistic tendency, the opportunity Ito said this time was not an opportunity, but an express train to hell.
‘Yes, that is also an opportunity. At one time, it will help us, of course, the subjects of the Japanese Empire and the Emperor’s demise, free from the current situation. If you consider whether the result will be good or bad, the latter is overwhelmingly likely.’
Nevertheless, they were forced to ask Ito for the details of the plan.
This is because the emperor’s appreciation had already fallen, and as long as they had to obey the emperor’s words, they had no choice but to increase the possibility of becoming like this to the maximum.
“Even if it breaks, wouldn’t it be much more beautiful to break clean like jade than to continue life? From when we gave food and money to the freak who occupied my house, and we had the spirit of a loser, saying that we left more of them today without dreaming of rebellion, only the leftovers they left behind. Fortunately, Amaterasu looked over us and we were able to get out of this situation, so it seems to me how grateful I am to tears.”
Even though I asked for a concrete implementation plan, the ministers felt instinct when they saw Ito, who only made the sound of catching clouds.
Up to now, though, Ito thought that he had implemented this gambling because he saw the least chance of success, but they were wrong. That people can sometimes do crazy things without being crazy.
And that they can’t get out of this madness either.
The train, which has already decided on an end where there will be no stopping on the way, announced the departure of a one-way journey with no plans to return.

“With regard to the command of the Allied Forces to be formed in connection with this movement, it would be better to yield to Germany or France. Going further, we should also express our intention to focus more on protecting civilians and construction workers at risk than on focusing on the expeditionary forces that will destroy the boxers directly.”
“Yes? But, Your Majesty, what we’ve done so far can be enough to demand the command of the Allied Forces, or we can ask for the biggest share in breaking the pie after this work is over. Do you really want to do that?”
“Yes, my thoughts remain the same. In the long run, it is my judgment that it would be better to firm up control over the Manchuria region rather than taking this opportunity into account, considering the half-heartedness of the Blue Naraines in the process of suppressing the boxers. He also told the mob of the South Manchuria Railroad Co., Ltd. installed in Manchuria to increase the expenses so that the railroad would not be destroyed.”
“If your Majesty does that, I see. I will say that to General Kutuzov.”
I had no intention of getting involved in this matter more deeply than now.
Some might say that they give up the opportunity to lead the allied forces of the powers and seize the interests that will pour out from the Qing Dynasty, but anyway, no matter how much profits they gain from the Qing Dynasty, it doesn’t matter after the Great War.
There was no need to cling to the assets that would be lost anyway while the European powers were striking in the mud of World War I.
It looks splendid at the moment, but it was better to reinforce the dominion over the things that we have now rather than the illusions such as flowers that fade away.
‘It’s a better option to clean up other areas while the eyes of the powers are on the Qing Dynasty while protecting only the assets we currently have, such as the South Manchurian Railway.’
If Joseon and Japan are organized this time, the Far East will not need to worry any more in the upcoming Great War.
In that case, only now was the intervention of other powers to be minimized due to the boxers.
This is because, if not now, the instant powers would rise up like bees as soon as they tried to strengthen their influence on Chosun or Japan more than they are now.
Even in France, an alliance, there was no way to show a very positive reaction.
Even in the state of having a defense alliance with France, this was to keep Germany in check, not to take care of each other’s national interests.
‘But I’m wondering how to exert more influence on Joseon.’
Manchuria Even if the military can be advancing because of securing the safety of the railroads currently being built or under construction, the story of Joseon was different.
As Manchuria was officially the land of the Qing Dynasty, the name of protecting its assets from the threats of the boxers was common, but even in Joseon, there could be a threat from the bands.
In addition, it was because most of the assets in Joseon were not assets that required a lot of manpower for expenses such as railroads, but that did not require too many such as mines.
This was the case in Joseon, but in Japan it was more difficult.
Unlike Joseon, which had to be prepared in advance because it was connected by land with the Qing Dynasty if forced, Japan was cut off by the Qing Dynasty and the sea, and there were only ferryboats that could cross the river of the Navy. Because.
“Your Majesty, I’m sorry you’re busy, but I think you must see this. It’s no other than a diplomatic specialty from the United States.”
“in America? Give it to me.”
The news that I heard while having a headache thinking about how to prevent the Far East from hurting my headache in the future was enough to clear up my worries, no, at least one of them.
“The king of Joseon requested mercenaries from the US? In addition to guaranteeing the interests that Russia currently has, he will provide additional interests, so he asked himself to support troops. What a surprise. Am I seeing nothing?”
Gojong seemed crazy.
