If you want to say which countries in the world are most likely to break out of an all-out war with China, it is the United States and Japan.
Because of the current anti-globalization and China’s industrial upgrading, the relationship between these two countries and China is getting worse and worse, and the possibility of fighting with China is also increasing.
So if the United States and Japan join forces and insist on a conflict with China, can the Chinese military resist it?
direct military collision
The answer to this question must be answered from two aspects: military and productivity.
From a purely military point of view, without the use of nuclear weapons, the United States and Japan will not be able to deal an effective blow to China’s existing national defense system, which means that China’s military power is capable of stopping the United States and Japan.
What is more noteworthy here is the geographical relationship between the United States and China, because China and the United States are thousands of miles apart. If it were not for the development of human industrialization and globalization, the two countries should have no connection. And this kind of geographical location far apart determines that it is difficult for the two countries to use all their strength to attack each other.
Compared with World War II, Germany was able to mobilize large troops to attack France because the two countries were close, and both logistics and military organization were easier to solve. But compare the distance between China and the United States, so far away, how to solve the logistics of the army? How to mobilize the army to the periphery of China?
It took several months for the United States to fight Iraq in the preparatory stage. In the past few months, the United States has continuously mobilized supplies and troops to Saudi Arabia and other countries around Iraq, and only then has the Gulf War been completed. This is when there are countries around Iraq that support it and are willing to provide assistance to the United States.
If it is against China, except for Japan, it will be difficult for the United States to find its own helper in the war.
If there is a real fight, the ASEAN countries around the South China Sea will not dare to help the United States. South Korea, the loyal “little brother” of the United States, can resist North Korea. As for a Japan, it is alone overseas, and it also has motives to help.
But given the distance between Japan and China, the entire territory of Japan is within the range of Dongfeng. Once a war starts, missiles headed by Dongfeng-17 can destroy every military facility on Japanese soil. Therefore, if the United States wants to attack China, logistics alone is an unsolvable problem.
In addition to logistics, how to send troops to mainland China is also a big problem.
Undoubtedly, given the geographical relationship between China and the United States, the United States can only send troops to China by sea or air. To send troops to China by sea, the United States must first gain control of the sea and the air, and the anti-ship missiles headed by Dongfeng-26 and Dongfeng-21D are eyeing them. Coupled with China’s own navy and air force, the United States must gain control of the sea. And air supremacy is even harder.
