China is a country where unless one is a member of a certain family one cannot hold a government job, or any real authority or fame (case in point Yao
Ming). You can not even work as a teacher if the government cannot, find a valid reason to conclude you are a member of this family. The only chance
one has for work beyond that is menial labor. The majority of people who live in China fall under the definition of what we commonly define as
peasants, they can read and write but in many cases beyond that
Further, in respect to Japan Invading China during World War 2, I mean realistically speaking, there is no way even that could have been
accomplished. If it were not for the fact that the country as a whole is much more divided that the central government is willing to admit. I mean,
that today. in the CIA Fackbook
, China claims an potential
military force of 600 million + but cleary the equivalent did not work out in Word War 2.
During the war with the British, China and the US were allies, this evidenced by the involvement of the "Flying Tigers. " In the conflict vs Mao.
Although, it is important to remember that in Treaty, in relation to the Nixon Accords, the United States does have military obligations to China, if
there is ever a conflict between China and Russia.
The United States as offered by another member, has an incredible advantage technologically over Russia and China. Case in point was the Russian
response in, respect to the Croatian/Serbian conflict (all the naval vessels they sent were outdated).
