Only fair if all countries do the same in retrospect ................
The Han would end up in ju ...
The Han empire actually began in the Western and North Western part of today's China but expanded to the East, It did not begin in the East. Guanddong had always been a part of the Han empire, your facts are all wrong here.
The Japanese invasion in retrospect is not all bad. It created a huge crisis and push a slumbering nation back into progress.
Sometimes you need great tragedy and crisis, to spark a great renewal, the Japanese invasion did just that and they provided everyone a common foe in which the revolutionaries and warlords at that time can all focus their aggression on.
China went into civil war because of the ineptness of the Qing Dynasty, the Japanese invasion helped refocus the civil war into a war against foreign invaders, sometimes a great crisis is what is needed to reawaken a slumbering society.
You cannot say the Yuan Dynasty was bad for China's progress either, in fact there are many supporting evidence that it spurs Chinese innovation and progress during this period, as Kublai Khan was very much a Confucian himself from a very young age, he actually helped expand Chinese influence, and reunite the kingdoms that were feuding among themselves during this period and Tibet fully comes under China's control during this period. Unlike the Japanese, Kublai did not commit a war of atrocity against China, he instead use the China as a vessel to fulfill his ambition and expanded the influence of confucianism.
So it's false to say the Yuan dynasty destroys Chinese progress, in fact it reunited China and spurs Chinese progress just as the Qin Dynasty, sparked the golden age of the Han Dynasty, so did the Yuan Dynasty sparked the Golden age of the Ming Dynasty.
It's also false to say WW2 destroyed Chinese progress, in fact it reunited China for the second time, China had no progress at that time, they were fighting a civil war and completely missed out on the industrial age, the Japanese actually gave the Chinese a common cause to unite.
We could look back at the Japanese invasion during WW2 that sparked the next Chinese Golden Age, but China do have a habit of falling behind just as they are getting ahead.
