Chuckle Chuckle, a nuclear emped attack over the USA will send it back
to the dark ages. In any case, this article attempts to explain Japans
military superiority through explaining nothing, and as for more
specially train, Japan will put up what? Their self defense forces is a
joke, and the Chinese armed forces is easily a match or better then the
American ones, as proven in yearly military competitions held where the
Chinese military comes up tops again and again, that's specially trained
and hardened for you, and don't give me the BS that China haven't fought
a real war, abilities are what matter in a real war, the Americans have
fought a real war and lost about every one of them, the worst being in
Korea and Vietnam despite having overwhelming technological advantage. I
love how Peter Ford is like a little sissy hiding behind the Japanese
skirt now, just be upfront and put the USA up there, Japan will be a
wreckage at the end of any conventional war, and the American and
Chinese economy will be turn back to the 50s, at the end of the day,
it's about who will outlast the other, and you can bet with near
certainty that China having gone through 120 years of revolutions and
two major wars, upheavals, that resulted in over 40 million deaths will
outlast anyone, which is why they have nearly 5000 years of recorded
history. When asked about the dinosaurs today, the cockroaches laugh in
their face :)

If it is a short military conflict over the islands, China does not have
advantages; however, if it escalates into a broader and longer war,
China does. Military strength is always commensurable to economic power.
China fought the US to a tie in Korean war in early 1950s when its
economic output was 3% that of US and steel production 1% that of US and
food production 20% that of US. Today its GDP is 70%, steel production 8
times that of US, food production equals US and India combined. If it
has taken more than a decade without being able to achieve military
objective in Iraq and Afghan war for the US, one should pause and
think...what would be the outcome of a war with a nuclear powered
country like China.

This article is clueless.
Japan in its current state is no match for China in an all out war
without US help. Not even close. Japan has no significant weapons system
on a scale to deal with China's size and all of its systems are of
limited range. It has no missiles that can reach China while China has
enough to wipe Japan off the map.
By many accounts China is just 20 years behind US but catching up fast.
Japan's best weapons are all old systems from US. But very little is
newer than 20 years. US has yet to sell them any new weapons such as
F22, F35, new warships etc.
In addition, Japan as an island with little resources is very difficult
to defend, as evident in WW2.

Underestimate China and you will find yourself serverly in the #$%$,
China has made a lot of allies, and a lot have not forgiven Japan for
WW2. China keeps its military progress a well guarded secret whereas I
feel Japan is a more known quantity. China would not start a war over
this issue anyway, china are more peace loving people who are more
interested in conquereing with financial prowess and in this method they
are winning far more quickly.
A good example of this is that the Taiwan business people are keen to
pressure their government to make amends and jion with China and China
will encourage any advantage in this they can, This is how they win not
through force like western nations,
China will subtely buy its neighbours as friends, when this happens it
will not need to worry about military strength so much. As mentioned
here by others North Korea and Russia are both keen to assist China and
you can bet that any technical advantage Russia has will be shared with
China in the event of conflict,.

I think China will be very pleased that the West think about China this
way. Those of us that actually follows military hardware from US, China
and Japan for the past 20 years knows the real military balance.
But yes, guys please think China is very very weak, so why don't you go
try to invade it, I'm sure you will win, I"m sure China will be a push
over like they were in the 1880s when the 8 nation alliance burned down
the Chinese imperial palace.

Anyone that knows history knows that Japan is historically the
belligerent nation. Way before WW2 all the way back to the 1500's they
were trying to invade Korea and China. Only with their utter defeat by
the US they have bowed and if you allow the Japanese to become fully
nuclear and militarized they'll stop taking US orders. China on the
other hand in their 2,000+ years of history mainly fought themselves
certain kingdoms invaded other nations but China for a long time was not
1 nation. In modern times they've had short term invasions into Vietnam
and in Korea to fight the US..even against the Soviets. Most of their
conflicts have been over territorial disputes.

China, in over 4000 years, have the unique distinction among the great
civilizations of the world of having lost every war they ever
participated in (it got so big by demographically swallowing every
annexing conqueror and warlord).
(Technically, they were on the winning side of WWII, but even on the day
Japan surrendered, more of China was under Japanese occupation than all

The Japanese most certainly did not over run the Chinese in World War
II, in fact their war against the Chinese was a massive failure in spite
of their having even greater technological and organizational skills at
that time. Their massive superiority in these skills led them into a
terrible morass that undermined the advantages they had. China has
improved tremendously in their internal structure and have still access
to the resources that Japanese needed so badly to expand their nation
into a leading first world nation. They could have likely done it had
they kept out of China, not attacked the USA and moved into South East
Asia replacing the European colonial powers who were so busy with
Germany at the time. They were unfortunately spread far too thin with
their China adventure to withdraw and were equally worried about the
Soviet Union. They made several bad strategic moves that that time, but
today China is ever more of a threat than at that time. Diplomacy would
have been the answer then, would be a better approach now. For both

PRC's One -Child-Rule is creating a country that will not tolerate
casualties. Why, parents do not want to lose their retirement program.
If the PRC cannot send tens of thousands over the hill, they cannot win.
As far as their military infrastructure, anyone remember the 1975/76
intervention in Vietnam? The Taiwan intimidation fleet exercise debacle?
Et. al.? Also never forget their fragile economy. In any conflict, a
disruption in imports of oil would be devastating beyond belief. As for
drones, can you say pulse (say about 50 Mega-Joules)?

At the start of the 2nd Sino-Japanese War in 1937, the Imperial Army of
Japan, with their vastly superior weaponry and training, planned to
conquer the whole of China in 3 short months. Instead, they were led
into a quagmire for 8 long years, without having been able to capture
half of the Chinese territories. Because of the tenacity of the Chinese
resistance, they were angered and frustrated and began committing
atrocities and massacres against the civilian population until the
Americans finished them off with the two A bombs.

leach's such a devil from hell. he's even expecting another massacre in
china. dame you . I'm so sad there's lots of God-damed guys living in
here US soil like you. and you're going to make US getting worse.
What kind of "scholar" are you? What is there to compare Japan and
Japan's armed force should be an armed force in the first place because
it is technical illegal to have a armed force for being the country
defeated in WWII.
The whole idea of China had not started a war with Japan is a stupid
concept. What would motivate China to start a war. Since when China had
ever started a war with Japan? The opposite is often true if you look
back at the history.
The idea of saying that China would attack Japan is like pondering
whether Israel would attack Germany. That is unlikely to happen.
But would Israel defends itself if German attacks it? I think so.
If you compare the relationship between China and Japan. Try thinking
about the relation between Israelis and the Germans.
