DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JAPANESE AND WESTERNERS
Atrocities during the Boxer Rebellion has been described by Wikipedia as below.
"""Boxers regularly killed and mutilated foreigners, including women and children, but did not rape them. The Imperial Army Muslim Kansu braves did not engage in indiscriminate slaughter, only targeting Christian spies near the legations.
Western forces went on a killing, looting, and raping rampage against Chinese civilians. All of the foreign troops, except the Japanese, raped women. It was reported that Japanese troops were astonished by the western troops engaging in raping. Thousands of women were raped by the western forces on a massive scale. The Japanese officers had brought along Japanese prostitutes to stop their troops from raping Chinese civilians. A western Journalist, George Lynch, said "there are things that I must not write, and that may not be printed in England, which would seem to show that this Western civilization of ours is merely a veneer over savagery." All of the nationalities engaged in looting. The Russians and French behavior was particularly appalling. Chinese women and girls committed suicide to avoid being raped. The French commander dismissed the rapes, attributing them to "gallantry of the French soldier". American troops also engaged in looting of shops.
The Russian writer Leo Tolstoy praised the Boxers, and harshly criticized the atrocities done by the Russians and other western troops, and accused them of engaging in slaughter when he heard about the lootings, rapes, and murders, and Tolstoy raged against Christian brutality. He also named the two monarchs most responsible for the atrocities, Nicholas II of Russia and Wilhelm II of Germany. Tolstoy also read Confucian works.
The New Age magazine accused the westerners of using the war to sustain their opium trade."""
