Mukden Incident occurs; fabricated bombing on the railway by Japanese
China went to the League of Nations, asking for collective response
Eh. We'll just assign this to the Lytton Commission
Japan...ehh don't do it
League of Nations and Japan
YAY just a slap on the wrist!
Yea...Also, what in the world is Manchukuo?
I think Japan has interests in Manchuria.
What do we do?
We'll just say Japan should give up and see what happens
Well nah dip.
I don't know, but I know for sure that it isn't a state.
The League consisted of superpowers that also acted on their own interest, especially Britain and France. France and Britain both wanted a weak China for their own interests in colonialism and Britain didn't have military means. Both suffered from the Great Depression and believed that the Crisis might be somewhat beneficial since it hinders the spread of Communism.
