If China and Japan Went to War: What Would America do?
The National Interest ^ | 06/21/14 | Harry J. Kazianis

Posted on 06/23/2014 8:25:46 AM PDT by thetallguy24

Picture it: It's March 1, 2015. Tokyo and Beijing are headed towards what was once the unthinkable.

Over the last several months China has instituted daily non-naval maritime patrols around the hotly disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu islands. Beijing is even sending fully-fledged naval assets within the islands' 12 mile exclusion zone while its aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, exercised only 50 miles away from the islands back in February — truly the end of Beijing's small-stick diplomatic strategy.

But on 1 March the plot thickens. Two Chinese SU-27 fighters come within 25 feet of a Japanese P-3 Orion surveillance plane just 10 miles west of the Senkakus (sound familiar?). The Japanese pilot gets nervous. A slight tweak at the controls and the Japanese plane collides with one of the Chinese fighters. Both aircraft crash into the ocean, with no survivors.

First off, Obama would never take a 3am phone call. He's too busy sleeping in till 9 in the morning. He didn't wake up for Benghazi. Why should he wake up for something else he doesn't care about?

Ask his caddy whether he recommends the three iron or four iron for a hundred yard shot.

First warn major Wall Street banks, so they can sell their Government bond portfolios before anyone else.

The wimp can’t hit a driver a hundred yards.
Thank you for teeing it up.

Obama would hunker down in the White House bunker or leave the country.

Obama is likely to get America nuked.

Well, we'll watch allies like South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia line up firmly behind China, while the Philippines and Vietnam reluctantly declare limited support for Japan.

And Obama will still have no idea what to do.

I still think this war will never happen. China is rattling sabers to distract its public from the country's looming economic turmoil. Japan is just strong enough to humiliate the PLA navy - and the party bosses can't risk that right now.

“China is on the wrong side of history. They’re acting out of weakness. What else can I say? Oh, this is Bush’s fault.” Then he’d go play golf.

Obama would need time to react to things—no hasty actions as the bullets start to fly—Then send Kerry to Beijing and Tokyo on a peace mission. Make startements how its all Fox News’s fault for covering a non-existant war. It will not be mentioned by the MSM—what war? Nothing to see here folks! Our real worry is the Tea Party and Racism! How can Obama act? We owe to much money to China? Russia could act—we could not. In such a fight—China will win. It will all be over in 30 days.

No freakin' way that would happen. China is a paper tiger. Weak navy, weak air force. They would be obliterated trying to attack America. The Japanese aren't officially allowed to have an offensive military, yet the Japanese would probably defeat the Chinese with Japanese self-defense forces. On top of this, China needs America; who else are they going to copy from?

Obama would hear about it on the news two weeks after it happens. He would be at a golf course in San Francisco with the wealthiest of the wealthy social media giants. After a few more fundraisers for Hillary 2016 and another speech to starry eyed Berkeley idiots he might issue a statement condemning Japanese aggression and urge calm. Obama is much too busy to be concerned about such petty things.

Only if the American military is allowed to fight back. I wouldn't bet too heavily on that.

The Obama faggot would spend a few hours in the White House bathhouse with his faggot buddies, and prepare for his golf game. He would then issue a stern warning to China, and go on vacation.

If China nuked the Fukushima nuke plant, the nuke leaking would finally be stopped.

Is pointing that out not PC?

Or is it rather what this cover story is being generated to hide?

They will fight back. Obama doesn't want to lose his socialist empire to outsiders like Chinese communists. He's reserving it for his muslim buddies. Besides, a military skirmish with the Chinese is a nice distraction while he implements martial law under his control.
