If instead of 1895 when Japan started to conquer China and Korea stating in 1895 if thses events had taken plaine 200 years before in 1592
Japan would have been under rule of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu dynasty
Korea would have been under rule of the Yi Dynasty
China would have been under rule of emperor Toyotomi Hideyoshi
Hideyoshi would have sent armed expeditions against India, Burma Thailand and Vietnam not to conquer but to occupy land a s bargaining chips....to control vital trade routes to secure power and wealth....

He would not go north against russia but he would go southwest Against the Ottman emPire he would send combined Japanese; Chinses; Korea and Mongel armies to conquer Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Egypt to secure the silk routes power and wealth

To keep powere he needs a European Ally....
France too far away
England too small
Spain is into trade but are also missionaries......
This left the dutch...they are experienced traders east and west; they occupy the vital spices islands and they are not missionaries.....

If only history had been different.....An Asian Empire from the Pacific to the Mederiterrain and the Indian seas
