Kemusnahan Kapal Kublai Khan

After successfully conquered Indo-china, Kublai Khan yang bercita-cita menguasai keseluruhan dunia ingin menyerang Jepun. This is the first time Kublai’s great army experience water battle, since there is no way to enter Japan melakui jalan darat. All these years, they have been quote as the best horse rider and sword fighter ever.

Cut thing short, after only few years of preparation Kublai army sail toward Japan. And in 1821, all thousands of Kublai’s battleships sank near south of Japan. Berita karamnya kapal-kapal perang beliau membuatkan Kublai Khan terlalu sedih dan memansuhkan rancangan untuk menakluki dunia. Many believe this is the turning point of the whole history of Indo-china, Asia and whole world.

Japanese believe their Sea God help them by creating enormous thunderstorm and tsunami. But in recent years scientist discovered the truth behind the vanished of Kublai’s army. They found most of the warship made with very low workmanship quality. Sesetengah kapal adalah untuk kegunaan sungai dan bukannya untuk pelayaran laut. There are no single ship yang dibina dengan tepat dan sesuai untuk dibawa berperang. Ada dua kemungkinan yang membawa kepada kegagalan pembinaan ini. Pertama, orang China yang diupah untuk membina kapal dengan sengaja sabotage the whole construction. Desakan kuat dari Kublai Khan yang memaksa pembinaan beribu-ribu kapal dalam kurang dari 3 tahun membuatkan tiada kawalan kualiti yang baik.

Conclusion:
Lack pf patience. (tergesa-gesa)
Lack of knowledge.
Lack of proper planning.
Lack of support. (from his own people)

Aku rasa ada banyak ilmu dan pengajaran kita boleh ambil dari kisah ini. Just imagine, the great leader like Kublai Khan pun manage to make a mistake that cost him millions of skill, well trained soldier and eventually the whole empire.

To be honest I get this story from National Geography, Astro. Since starting June, Astro will charge extra for the monthly fees, I believe we should make full use of the information from all the channels. Not just 80, 81 and 82. Hahaha….ops, aku terlupa Astro Ria and @15, demam Akademi Fantasia.
