I hate the Communist Party chapter 93
“You look happy, Majesty.”
This was what Foreign Minister Ger said when he saw me wondering how to send Gojong a gift full of heart.
It looks fun, so why don’t it be fun to sell a little trap for someone who is not British and knows Russia funnyly?
Anyone who feels joy or joy at trapping someone must be intoxicated, so I felt the need to resolve the misunderstanding that Foreign Minister Ger was making to me.
Because I don’t have such an unusual, frankly, kinky taste.
As long as the other person doesn’t stimulate me first.
You might be puzzled to hear my cousin’s older brother living at Buckingham Palace, but let’s put it out of the question.
Even that way, I wouldn’t be able to achieve what I wanted if I hadn’t shackled the British. Hmm hmm.
In the beginning, isn’t the foreign minister expressing the feeling that it is fun with all his body?
“The foreign minister looks so happy. Was the message sent by Weber Corporation so interesting?”
“To be honest, it is the most humorous document I’ve ever seen in my diplomat career. I think that your Majesty’s preparation now will be as much fun as that. Could you please tell me what you are thinking?”
“Since you can see that the king of Joseon is hot, it would be better to give him some of his desires. You seem to think that you are protecting Joseon from other countries with your own ability, but let’s suit his grand illusion a little.”
“Of his countless dance requests, the easiest one to match is the military advisory group and other equipment support. The answer that it strengthens military power, which is the source of power that seems to be able to make imagination a reality, for those who reveal their desire to advance into the outside, would be like putting an eye patch over already closed eyes.”
As Ger said, the one that could throw the bait at the lowest cost among the issues that Gojong seemed to want was that it helped build the military power of Joseon.
It was Joseon, which had the weakest military power among the three East Asian countries, but after Imohgunran, it was literally a need to rebuild from zero.
This could be said to be a helpful factor for our Russia as well.
Because it was better for us to grow it from scratch than to implant Russian doctrines into an army that remembers the original training method and doctrine.
In addition, if you consider that in case of emergency, when it is necessary to carry out military operations inside the Korean peninsula, it is possible to pursue a joint venture with the Joseon Army, which has similar equipment and doctrines as ours.
The future NATO allied forces will not unify the supply system such as ammunition.
“That said, it would be burdensome to recruit incumbent soldiers and send them to a military advisory group, so let’s find someone who has just been discharged or who is willing to sacrifice to volunteer for this mission. It would be better if we did not formally accept the request of the Joseon government and dispatched it as a military advisor, but for the last time, it would be better for the Weber Corporation to gather those who are close to him to meet the request of the king of Joseon. Even if you do this, there will be some opposition from other countries, but you won’t be able to handle that.”
If it had been in the past, I would have felt a burden to show this level of movement, but I was confident that the present Russia would be able to handle it.
‘If the political backlash appears too intense, the UK and France also ask us to send an advisor in a private costume like us.’
If that happens, like the Korean Imperial Army of the original history, you could see a fantasy collaboration like A country for arms, country B for doctrine, and country C for ceremonies, but the goal was not to increase the military power of Joseon.
It was important to show Gojong that we did this much to get what he wanted to the end.
‘Maybe, you could say that we connected with France or England.’
Considering Gojong’s desire to collect weapons, he might have expressed joy in having a variety of equipment.
In the process, it would be better if we felt grateful for us who gave bridges to England and France.
“That’s a good idea. If so, it would be better to use Verdan rifles, which are piled up in warehouses as Mosin rifles are mass produced. Likewise, the old ammunition is becoming obscure to use as an ammunition improvement project.”
The foreign minister seemed to take this opportunity to take care of the old materials as well. It was a very good number in that you can pay less while paying more.
We couldn’t send as much as we thought, because the number of rifles that we received was not sufficiently secured, and the production of new ammunition to replace the old ammunition began in earnest.
“I have to consult with the Minister of War on that. That’s a good opinion, Foreign Minister. Then how to get the purchase price for it… … .”
The question was how to get the price for providing second-class equipment and a blindfolded, but civilian military advisory group.
It was said that it was just a paving stone to get what we wanted, but that didn’t mean we had to give it for free.
‘Or it would be okay to get it bigger by combining it with something else.’
As it was confirmed that Gojong had a desire to advance into the Manchuria region, he was able to attract him in connection with the South Manchurian railway project currently underway.
No matter how ruined it is, the wealth of the Lee royal family could not be ignored.
It could also be said to be a characteristic of the monarchy. Because one family owns one country.
This is because the property referred to here is not limited to what you have in kind, but also applies to natural objects.
“For more information, we should consult with the Finance Minister Bite, but it would be better to ask the King of Joseon what it is like to invest money for our business in Manchuria. If this is the king, you will have him floating. Participating in the work of the empire means that Russia recognizes you as an equal partner, not as a subordinate country. Like this.”
“Will the King of Joseon succeed with that?”
“As described by Weber Corporation, if he has a great desire for honor or imperialistic ambition, I think it will fall. In return, the same rights as mining rights would be better. Or, it would be nice to talk about establishing a company that will jointly develop and explore mines with the Joseon Dynasty as we do in Japan. In exchange for joining him in the Manchurian project.”
It seemed to me that it was better to tie up all the things we propose to them and sign an agreement at once, rather than asking for money for small things like rifles and other supplies.
It was obvious that it was better to acquire rights related to mines than to acquire gold or silver little by little.
“Then, what would you do to ask the Koreans who came to the coastal region, one of the things the king of Joseon wanted, to pay taxes? Personally, I think it’s the easiest requirement for us, as we don’t have to pay anything, but what do you think?”
“Tell me that you can never hear that.”
Ger was puzzled when he revealed that I could never think that he would have similar thoughts on this issue as well.
“No matter where they were born, if they came to Russia and swore allegiance to me, they are Russians. How can the people trust and rely on me if I allow my subjects to collect taxes from the monarchs of other countries? I don’t want you to talk about it again. This is a problem that is also related to nationalism that I have been talking about since the last days.”
“My thoughts were short.”
In fact, even if the contradiction between my own sense of responsibility and nationalism advocated for them is second, if Gojong would do double taxation as he wanted, the public sentiment of the coastal region, which is stable at best, would be shaken. It was an impossible condition.
“No matter how hard the chief executive officer tries, if the perception that they left their hometown and settled is no different from Joseon, it is obvious that the already organized Korean society will be shaken. If that happens, my plan to increase the influence over Joseon through the private sector will be broken.’
When I summarized the course of action for the items that Gojong seemed to want, Ger was curious about the poisonous carrot I mentioned earlier.
So far, what I have said hasn’t been very different from what appears in the usual agreements.
It was difficult for us to be considered poisoned carrots because the requirement of getting B in exchange for providing the object A was.
Regarding the mining rights for the mine, even more if we consider that we do not have 100% ownership, but only acquire a certain percentage of shares through a co-founder like Japan.
“However, at the end of the treaty, the two countries have a statement stating that they will make the utmost efforts to implement the relevant agreement, and that they have the right to protect facilities made with mutually invested capital in the event of destruction or damage. It would be nice to put it. For both sides.”
This was a provision that allowed people to intervene in the name of protecting mining facilities when a peasant uprising, which is expected to occur sooner or later, even if it was not the Donghak peasant movement.
It was self-evident that the people who could not withstand exploitation were raised in the Joseon Dynasty, where the Min family was sufficiently filling the vacancy in the Qing Dynasty and Japan.
It could be said that it was a toxin clause, but as it was a right given to both countries, it could be said to be an attractive provision for Gojong, who has a desire to advance to Manchuria.
If he believes that the Manchurian Railway he invested is at risk, he will be able to launch troops on the basis of this treaty.
It was unclear whether Gojong would possess such a capability, but it was a treaty that included the provision that we would provide support for him as well as military supplies, so it could sufficiently stimulate Gojong’s ambition.
‘And if we send troops to Joseon, where the peasant uprising took place.’
It was also worth considering to reduce the hostility of Koreans toward foreign powers by sending troops with Korean-Russians as their faces.
“I don’t know until the treaty is signed, but if we were to send troops to Korea, Britain and other countries would not stand still. It’s a completely different story between seeing economic gains and trying to actually exercise control.”
The foreign minister’s concerns were correct.
If we mobilize military power alone, Britain will run wildly right now.
No matter how much internal chaos is increasing, Britain was Britain.
“Wouldn’t it be okay if we were to comply with the request of the king of Joseon rather than come first?”
I did not intend to end the situation early in the event of an emergency.
