#3 Taiwan has 1900mph cruise missiles they would likely be happy to co-produce with Japan in exchange for some more tech exchanges like the hi-speed train robot track bed builders they license from Japan.

#9 Who knows, RJ? If we'd have let the Japanese have their way in China during WWII the world might be a better place today.

#10 Think long RJ, China has ever been an expansionist entity, it's that our western history is kinda vague on that aspect.

#12 Under its post-war Constitution Nippon by same cannot act "offensively" or be a military aggressor - unless it is changed, JAPAN + ITS "DEFENSIVE-ONLY" JSDF IS MOST LIKELY TO BE ON THE RECEIVING END OF ANY NORTH KOREAN = CHINESE PREEMPTIVE OR UNILATERAL FIRST-STRIKE.

[NORTH-KOREA-VS-USS-GEORGE-WASHINGTON-CVN here].

Taken collectively, from various present MSM-Net Artics it would appear that China may not be interested in taking Japan head-on militarily, in part because it desires to keep RUSSIA neutral AMAP ALAP + not militarily involved in a US-China-Japan [ROK?] three-way conflict.

CHINA = TAIWAN IS STILL ITS FOCII, BUT IMO CHINA DESIRES A STARTEGIC COMBAT FRONT FROM TAIWAN ALL THE WAY DOWN TO NORTHERN PHIL + SE ASIA [Taiwan-PHIL-Hainan], N-O-T FROM TAIWAN TO THE DISPUTED DIAOYUS/SENKAKUS. The Diaoyus/Senkakus + Okinawa? is a Secondary Front, not China's primary front despite still being linked to Taiwan???

From the mostly empty NORTHERN PHIL, wid SHORE-BASED ASBMS + PLAAF AIRPOWER the PLA can better defend the Okinawa-Taiwan Straits from incoming USN Nimitz-class CVBGS + USMC EBGS out in WESTPAC while still allowing the PLAN + PLAAF to protect + do battle agz the JSDF in the Sea of Japan.
