Back in the Day: June 4

This day in history …

June 4, 1928: Those who live by the sword …
Warlord Zhang Zuolin, military dictator of Manchuria, is assassinated with a bomb placed by agents of the Japanese army. Zuolin, rabidly anti-Communist, had been a favorite of Japan and a recipient of their aid until he lost a military campaign to the Kuomintang (Nationalist) army under Gen. Chiang kai-Shek and then caused Manchuria’s economy to collapse due to his overbearing military expenditures. At this point, he was decided to be more of a liability than an asset.
