I beg to disagree 13th_redneck, Japan would be greatly affected if and when a reunification happens between north and south Korea. they have been traditional rivals for centuries, there is mutual distrust and animosity between them, reunification would awaken long dead and buried issues that have been just simmering below the surface. A unified Korea would pose a clear and present threat to Japan politically, economically as well as militarily.

A unified korea would have more than two million men and women in uniform and armed to the teeth, with modern equipment and the technology and industry to manufacture planes, ships, tanks and all the implements of modern warfare. Both Japan and the Koreas also have warrior traditions.

and don't forget the fact that N.Korea is believed to posess nukes...

ergo... IMHO, America, China and Japan would do eveything in their power to retain the status quo. ( no unification) a divided korea would be in their best interest.

Agree with Brotchador.

13 got to have a clear view of the Japan issue in Korea. I believe 13th is only one the very few Koreans who have a good feeling towards japan.

Japan is a much bigger player in Asian Polotics than they let on to be. Japan has alot more power in Asia then they let on also. Out of Asia China and Japan are the two richest nations. The Korean Situation greatly affects Japan, if an invasion did happen it would also affect Japan because refugees may try to escape to the smaller Islands that Japan owns in that area wich may cause hostiliteas with a side.

I agree. Japan, a geographically miserably placed tiny country, is a true beast. As incredible as it is, Japan once (or more than once) beat the crap out of Korea, China, and so many Asian countries. It also is the only country that attacked the US on its own soil and did a pretty awesome job at Pearl Harbor. Without the nukes, I don't know how much the US would have to suffer before finally beating Japan. This country is not a normal country! It only honors violent force: That which it inflicted on other countries and that which it suffered from the nukes.

I don't really hate the Japanese as human beings around me. I like the cuties there as much as you guys do. But as a nation under certain type of government, this specific people is as bad as devil himself. That is why I sort of believe that if large-scale war is to break between China and Japan again, China will have to nuke or cause easthquakes to total this SOB country just in order to avoid being eaten alive.

I know that you Americans will disagree, due to your own strategic interest, your control over, and your use of, Japan. But think of it this way: You are so far away from Japan and yet you dropped nukes on it in a situation where you didn't really have to. If you had not dropped the nukes, you would only suffer more casualties. That's it. But if China hesitates to nuke the bastards in a futur all-out war, the whole China might be eaten alive! Have any of you read the book "The Rape of Nanking"? That was not written by some commies. That was history!

Which would be worse of the two: More casualties for you Americans in the past or the rape and loss of the nation for Chinese in the future?

Well, if the US feels it justifiable to nuke the Japanese only to prevent more casualties. China, or at least some Chinese, certainly will feel justifiable to obliterate them when faced with a danger that is much much much closer to home!

"Its All A Game" if you are that worried about it then get actively involved in your countries political process and change things. But seeing you are from China I doubt that they would hold elections so standing as an independent will be out of the question, however, I maybe wrong.

But you can work that out for yourself.


Nukes are not the answer they are the END.

So because Japan did something bad before, that means they will do it again? I suppose that means you should nuke Mongolia too, since they did that whole "almost conquer the world" thing once.

I guess we better nuke Germany before the fourth Reich arises, too.

Japan has Political power not military power, Japan is a pacifist nation so they do not keep a powerful army. If a war did happen Military wise China could blow Japan away, However Japan is a small country the sieze of California with around 127 million people, it is so densly populated invading it would be dangerous for threat of a civilian uprising.
