This is China using strong words for the sake of propaganda as well as a way to show it's own people it is not afraid of the United States...which it
is...but to seem as beeing so in the Communist Parties veiw can only make the Party seem weak and thus ripe for Chinese citizens who are seeking more
of a voice in their own Government to be able to plot and plan for the change from a Communist system to a Democratic one.
China KNOWS that if it should ever attempt any Military action against Japan that the United States would destroy any Chinese Forces that are involved
with extreme predjudice. China would not have a chance.
Split... you're not quite grasping the chain reaction of such a move. I'm not so sure the US can afford defend Japan right now specially starting a
war with China. Ok, but let's ignore the chain reaction... China is not a bunch of untrained ragtags. In a conflict with conventional weapons it's
foolish to underestimate China.
But we'll see... China does need a power shift on the pacific so, we'll see how the US deals with that - because it IS going to happen.
Plus the US will need allies. And China will need allies. Difference is... the US allies are not willing to fight China and its allies, if you think
they will, they wont. The US will be alone in such a large conflict. Where China's allies are more than willing to fight the US.
Taking all into account... the number 1 military power fighting against the third... which can be helped by the second... worse case scenario of
course, the US has no chance. Absolutely none. Here we can include conventional and nuclear - the US will lose.
Like I said, if you do all the math, it will be a very VERY costly mistake to underestimate China.
By the way... have any idea what the US thinks when they know that China can obliterate India in a snap? China can be faster with India than Russia
was with Georgia.
But I insist. Look at the chain reaction. The US would instantly lose the pacific and the middle east. You see... this is like a game of chess and the
King is in a very tight spot these days and even mere pawns can checkmate a King. And China is not a pawn.
