Re: Merger proposals[edit]

I disagree because the regime(s) are most commonly known as the Wang Jingwei Regime or the Nnanking National(ist) Government, not the "Dadao government".

Furthermore, there are conceptual differences between the Dadao government (1937-1940) and the Wang Jinwei Regime. If any mergers were to occur at all, then these articles are best united under a title like "puppet governments under Japanese occupation" or something like that.

Finally, this article (Dadao government) is poorly written and seems to be talking about governments half the time and flgas the other half. It does not source Chinese language versions of proper nouns, and many transliterations do not appear to conform to any standard system (Pinyin or WG). The title does not fully reflect the contents. For some reason, the original author appeared to think that describing a flag is sufficient to describe a regime. However, he or she appeared to have neglected to put up pictures of these flags which are so central to the article as it stands.

In conclusion, the Wang Jingwei Regime and the Chinese Reformed State are different to the Dadao government. They are better known than the "Dadao government". Those articles are also much better written than the "Dadao government". Therefore the proposed merger is not appropriate.--Sumple (Talk) 21:26, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Article was a complete mess. Hopefully it is now better. --MChew (talk) 15:44, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Republic[edit]

How is the dadao govt possibly a republic? A republic has to have its head elected... and the Japanese appointed people right? I dont know, but I'm betting it was not a free and fair election. Maybe puppet govt is more appropriate Ottawakismet (talk) 19:56, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
