A typically injured and mutilated Chiang is shown here as nothing more than a leverage through which Americans try to uproot the People's Republic of China. They do with this with a flimsy piece of wood labelled 'Mei Jiang tiiaoyue' (The US-Chiang Treaty), referring to the Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty, signed in December 1954 and in response to the Offshore Islands Crisis of earlier that year.
