Let's piss off some weeabos. Let's piss off some weeabos. Let's piss off some weeabos.Yup, you weeabos heard, Japan was an asshole when it was rising in power. Try to defend them from this. Now the Russian Empire wanted a warm water port. Both the Russians and Japanese were expanding their imperialistic aims.
Now both retards couldn't come to an agreement, Japan wanted Russia to respect Korea as Japanese sphere of influence, and Japan would respect Manchuria as Russian sphere of influence. Russia said no, and to leave Korea north of the 39th parallel neutral as a buffer zone. Them Japs said no. After negotiations failed, Japan declared war on Feb 8, 1904. Now the Japanese three hours before sending the war declaration, the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked Port Arthur.

Port Arthur was in control of the Russians. When the Japanese attacked, it was eventually an indecisive outcome. It did provide a cover for Japanese troops to land in Korea.
Japanese troops Seoul
Japan attempted to block the port but was failing when they attempted to sink cement filled steamers, but were sunk too deep to make them ineffective. Russians began to use offensive mine laying and sank one Japanese mineship and another had to be dragged to Korea after heavy damage.
Battle of Liaoyang, now this was the first land campaign of the war. Now I might teach you a new word, pyrrhic. This was a pyrrhic victory for the Japanese. What does pyrrhic mean? It's a victory that the cost was so high the victory might not have been worth it. See the Russians fought the Japs, and the Japs tried to encircle Ivans but the Ivan general, Aleksey Kuropatkin, was able to inflict heavy losses on the Japs and pull out. Course they were suppose to relieve the troops at sieged on Port Arthur but they avoided being wiped out.

Jap cavalry crossing Yalu River, yeah yeah, look how they don't have body pillows or shouting retarded anime statements, yeah learn from that you weeabos.
Battle of Yalu River, holy ****, this was the first major battle which was a Japanese victory.
Russian battleship Retvizan, whose captain received severe wounds in the ship's brave solo charge against the Japanese fleet in the Battle of the Yellow Sea
The battle of the Yellow sea was a strategic jap victory, Russian perceptions of the Japanese changed and they began taking them more serious.

Battle of Sandepu, Russian troops prepare for winter fighting.
8-inches mortar battery in 900 meters before the enemy positions at Sandepu, the battle was in total indecisive with no clear winners.
Battle of Mukden, Russian Calvery recon mission.
The battle of Mukden was a bad lost for the Ruskis, they were driven out of southern Manchuria into Northern Manchuria. Japanese victory with at least 75,504 Japanese casualties, 88,352 Russian casualties.
Battle of Tsushima, this was a huge naval battle fought with steel battleships. Jesus christ it must have been glorious, and no damn waifus in skirts with giant robots , fighting you weeabos, it was battleships and soldiers against one another.
Now, it was 89 Jap IJN ships versus 38 Ruskie Naval ships. You can all probably do basic math and guess who won. Russians took heavy casualties and eventually surrendered to the Japs.
So, ya'll probably guessed good ol' Theodore "Teddy" Speak softly but carry a big stick you will go far, Roosevelt, was able to successfully broker a peace between the Russian Empire and the Japanese Empire. Russia recognized Korea as part of the Japanese sphere of influence and agreed to evacuate Manchuria. Japan would annex Korea in 1910.
And now all you weeabos are doing god knows what , no wonder Korea hates the japs. Now if you'll excuse me, i got some anime to watch ya weeabos.
