    does china going to US on their main Land even it's neighbor country ..where already they are in cold war
    Ummm, because China isn't an idiot child who thinks if they paint their boats a different colour everyone will go "ohh, didn't realise the Norks had those boats": because China and the US are far more realistically allied than China and North Korea: because China actually enjoys peace and prosperity: because the PLAN and the Chinese government aren't suicidal.

    Can Japan send troops abroad?

    Maeda Toshiie,

    Did not make it clear. My point was based on a discussion that Japan did come under fire.

    There is one heavy BCT in country, with a fires, a bunch of Patriots, etc.

    Marines can reinforce quickly.

    It will mostly be a ROK fight, though.

    The sites I've seen says 6-9 Pu warheads of which 3 are gone. I'm still trying to figure out what is their HEU production capabilities but suffice to say, it would be less than 3 warheads to date.

    A much greater balance at that point.

    And the NORK equipment is OLD and not well maintained. Why?

    As the Colonel said, no money.
    IMO, the JSDF doesn't figure in, unless the DPRK start shooting at the Japanese (and for what?). If it is DPRK vs ROK, ROK would never let the Japanese step in (it's family business after all), nor would the Japanese volunteer to. Although tensions b/w the Japanese and PRC has taken a backseat with the DPRK's latest tantrums, I don't see the Japanese as willing (would probably not play well domestically) to assist the ROK with combat units.

    These charts only count stuff, while neglecting everything else that actually matters, equipment quality, manpower quality, training, logistics, etc. Essentially useless numbers that the uninformed use for making equally useless comparisons.

    Question: how much forces can the US shift in the event of an all out war in the peninsula, in time to matter (ie blunting the initial assault and the point at which the initiative is transferred to the South Koreans and that they start driving north)? In terms of USAF, ground forces, and CBGs, taking into account of present deployments elsewhere. If this has been discussed already, apologies for that and a link to the relevant posts would be appreciated.


    Yet another question: is there any open source information on the TASCFORM used by the US, especially if it is available on the web? Google doesn't seem to supply much in the way of relevant hits (which I am not entire surprised about).

    I have seen far better looking Japanese idols than that "Miss Japan"...

    1) They don't have the money.
    2) They don't have the troops.
    3) They don't have the munitions. They had four friggin bags per gun per battery. That's 5 minutes.

    You know shit all. No B-52 is stationed outside of the US and the B1s were forward based just for one single exercise.
