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 of Japan.)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It is amazing how ignorant people become by only reading Yahoo news articles and then not reading deeper into these themes. As a scholar, I have been saying it for years, that Japan's military is stronger than the Chinese military. Why do you think the Chinese have not really gone and just set up on these islands? Of course there is the deterrent of the United States, but even without the US, Japan could handle China. While China has the manpower, technology renders them obsolete. All it means is the Chinese hordes gather together and make an easy target for the Japs. And this is while Japan is only in "self-defense" mode, although I doubt that's the reality underneath. If Japan becomes militant even a little bit again, they will become quite powerful and China may never have the capability to spar with them. Who knows? Another Nanjing massacre in the future? The Japanese just completely overran the Chinese in WWII, and they could probably do it again. They may be a few years ahead of the Chinese militarily, but they are centuries ahead of them intellectually.

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 sides.

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.

What kind of "scholar" are you? What is there to compare Japan and China's military?
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.
