How was China effected after World War I?
As the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand in 1914 led to the Triple Entente, which during the same time period was the First World War, and as one year passes by, the Versailles Treaty was signed, and caused turmoil between many countries and territories. However, the Versailles Treaty was not the only "agreement" that took place with the outcomes of World War One. The Sykes-Picot and the Balfour agreement came into play. East Asia and the Middle Eastern countries were affected tremendously. In the 1930's both the Chinese and the Arabs were affected by the Versailles Treaty, but in contrast, the Arabs in the Middle Eastern countries got their land back, but the Chinese in the East Asian countries never did. Although they had different outcomes, they were both affected by the Versailles Treaty, and impacted the Arabs by the split of the Sykes-Picot, promoting a peaceful, non-violent (Sunni) and the other as strict and violent (Shiites) ; meanwhile China was unified among communism. In 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was a similar problem for the Chinese and the Arabs. The treaty promised all Ottoman-Turkish land to the Arabs, but never received it. China did not get the islands that they were promised either. As the Arabs and Chinese did not get their promised land, the treaty was an outside agreement that gave land to British and France. Basically, the treaty did not follow through on what they had an agreement on. However, the Arabs revolted in 1922. They won back all the land that was promised in the beginning. In contrast, China did not get their land back at all. In result of that, in Beijing in 1919, Mao Tse Tung led a group of students and teachers, in the aspect toward their anger with the treaty. Communism and Nationalism took an enormous part in this country's history. In addition to the fact that Japan had all the islands, Japan made China a completely communist country. Japan was a big influence and saved the communists from the nationalists. China also received military occupation from Japan. The Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916 (earlier mentioned), was a secret agreement that the British (Sykes) would receive Palestine, Jordan, and Iraq, while France (Picot), would receive modern-day Lebanon, Syria, and much of Turkey. Despite the fact that the Ottoman Empire was brought to an end in 1923 (which is now modern-day Turkey), the Sunnis and the Shiites contradicted one another also. The Sunnis and Shiites began in 537 A.D., when Muhammad died and his father-in-law took place. He did not want the Qur'an as a military rule document. The difference between the Sunnis and Shiites are that the Sunnis were peaceful and non-violent, while the Shiites were violent and were said to put everyone to death who does not believe in the Qur'an.
The war has effected our world economically wise definitely. The war right now is sucking up our money for weapons, transportation like planes, and salories for army members. The war has also effected our world populaion wise. We lost many, many soldiers in the war. Many families have been griefstricken from the loss of loved ones unfortunatley. Watch the news!!!

The biggest affect of World War II on China was that the main governemnt of China, the Kuomingtang (KMT) lost a lot of resources due to the fight against the Japanese (major) and Communists (minor). Hyperinflation, corruption, lack of morale from WW2 caused the Chinese Civil War to favor the Communists. The KMT government eventually lost the mainland and fled to Taiwan. Also our population has suffered greatly since so many men have sacrificed their…
