Public debate China-Japan war prospects

Por • 8 nov, 2013 • Category: Política

The recent tensions and incidents between the Chinese and Japanese militaries have led to heated discussions about the possibility and consequences of another Sino-Japanese war among observers from military and academic circles, as well as the public. In the Russian report, Vasiliy Kashin, a senior research fellow at the Moscow-based Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, predicted a “humiliating failure” for China if a war with Japan over the Diaoyu Islands breaks out, citing Japan’s advanced weaponry and personnel training. Another Russian expert cited by the report, Konstantin Sivkov, first vice president of the Academy for Geopolitical Issues, however, believed the Japan Self-Defense Force would lose if China’s leadership is determined to reclaim the disputed islands but indicated that the Chinese military would be defeated by Japan’s ally US. Major General Luo Yuan, a vice president of the China Strategic Culture Promotion Association, told the Global Times that the assessment by Russian experts was inaccurate due to their outdated information, but it reminds China to remain cautious.
