I don't know how to say it to you in a public forum... You just kicked the ball into the T ...
Wow. You really have done lots of research on Chinese history. Then you just can't pin blame on Han Chinese collectivelly for being the provocateurs or aggressors. Historically, some of the generals and soldiers who served in the army or were dispatched to faraway places to either head off the invasion of minorities and some Islam nations or bag more territories for Tang , were minorities , er, just like you pointed it out in this reply.
Gao Xianzhi, who reportedly belonged to a minority called 高句丽族, was just one of them, just like Zheng Cheng Gong or 郑成功, who was half Japanese. BTW, Gao Xianzhi had nothing to do with Korea because 高句丽族 and 高句丽国 or Korea were not the same.
Like I said , no one was and is innocent. If you really bother laying bare the truth about the history of human conquests, struggles for liberty or emancipation from foreign oppression, then you fill find that no one really cares to listen to your exhortations or lectures, largely because we all know that the victims were or are also the culprits themselves.
Take Han people. They had been treated with contumely by Manchu people during the Qing ruling until the dissolution or implode of Qing, which was replaced by the avowed Emperor 袁世凯 and then the Chinese Nationalist Party led by Sun Yat-sen, who was a dapper, dashing and daring leader.
It's just too complicated. I think even most Chinese citizens are still at sea with what happened in all the former dynasties, except their names. You know what? I hear that some kids are told to recite the names of these old dynasties as a means to improve memory.
