Japan occupied Chinese territories during World War 2, after Japan was hit by the Spanish Flu and Japan's economy suffered greatly as a result of the Great Depression.

Will China do to Japan what Japan did to China during World War 2?
damned

How would that work? China is in a weakened state not Japan. They can't really take advantage of Japan in this situation. Unless I misunderstand something.

"Patients who developed only moderate symptoms at the onset of the disease later fell seriously ill and died of multiple organ failure"

WUHAN VIRUS/Experts find how moderate 2019-nCoV infection ends with death

Taipei, Feb. 9 (CNA) Experts have blamed a form of systemic inflammatory response syndrome called "cytokine storm" for killing some novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)-infected patients who were not very sick in the early stage of infection but eventually died of multiple organ failure, according to Chinese media reports.

The epidemic, which started mid-December in Wuhan, in China's Hubei Province, had claimed more than 800 lives in China as of Feb. 8, including Li Wenliang (李文亮), a 34-year-old ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital who tried to issue the first warning about the deadly coronavirus outbreak late last year but was silenced by the Chinese authorities.

Li was confirmed Feb. 1 to have been infected after treating a patient who later tested positive for coronavirus. He died on Friday.


While most victims have been middle-aged, elderly or suffering from chronic disease according to official Chinese data, Li's death, as well as that of a 39-year-old man in Hong Kong, drew media attention as the epidemic has attacked more than 37,000 people in 28 countries around the world.

According to Chinese media reports, Zhong Ming (鍾鳴), a physician at the department of critical care medicine of Zhongshan Hospital in Shanghai, warned that in some novel coronavirus cases, patients who developed only moderate symptoms at the onset of the disease later fell seriously ill and died of multiple organ failure.

He termed the condition a "storm of inflammations"

Once patients are in that situation, "it is very difficult for them to recover,"
said the doctor who was sent to Wuhan's Jinyintan Hospital soon after the epidemic broke out last year.

Well, imagine you have a whole bunch of factories, used by the west, and decide to go on a war footing.

Can you think of a clever cover story to turn those factories on for the state and not export.

They could literally be mass producing tanks for a couple of months, telling the rest of the world it masks.

They have effectively got all the worlds diplomatic staff to leave, all residents and "spies" of foreign nationalities have left. The ones that haven't will be locked in areas for their own safety in case they catch the flu.

We are either witnessing a potentially really bad epidemic, or we are watching China go properly dark.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75368747


It takes us 3 or 4 years to build an aircraft carrier. The Chinese can build one - albeit smaller - in much less time.

Now if they were to seize South Korea, their shipyards could churn out ships quickly too.

I don’t think the odds favor the chicoms doing anything, but they take the long view and don’t mind putting their population thru pain to achieve their goals. The one thing that scares me is that they waited months to tell us about it the virus. Hell the first western team just arrived yesterday. So in two months the US and probably the military will be sick. We will have other things to deal with. Hopefully we are putting our subs at sea just in case.

The Asians are all about saving face. I remember now President for life Xi Jinping, addressing the Communist party officials and openly committing that Taiwan would be taken by them either peacefully or by force if necessary no later than the 100th anniversary of their Party's founding. This is next year of course.

Considering the Coronavirus running rampant, I am reminded that there is a saying that the Communists like to follow - Never let a good crisis go to waste!

Considering the two day incursions of Chinese strike planes into Taiwanese airspace, probing them, look at this article from today on American Military News -


As coronavirus spreads, China’s military is largely MIA

February 11, 2020

A few excerpts -

At a moment when hospitals across China are posting cries for supplies on social media, the anemic response by the People’s Liberation Army calls into question some of its most lauded capabilities: powerful logistics and mass military-civil contingency response mobilization.

The PLA’s relative lack of response is even more puzzling given that Wuhan is home to major military units that should be capable of deploying to a contingency. These include the Joint Logistics Support Base, notionally the center of the PLA Logistic Support Force’s network of warehouses and stockpiles). According to China’s 2019 defense white paper, the PLA Joint Logistic Support Force “comprises the support forces for inventory and warehousing, medical services, transport, force projection, oil pipelines, engineering and construction management, reserve assets management, and procurement.”

The other military services also appear to be largely absent. In recent years, China has produced significant numbers of strategic Y-20 transport aircraft, bragging about the leap forward they offer to China’s ability to deploy at home and abroad, yet these have so far been notably absent from relief efforts. So too, the PLA has also signed strategic agreements with China’s largest transport and delivery services to allow them rapid access in a crisis. For example, the PLA’s largest-ever logistics exercise, held in December 2018, featured mass use of these companies’ planes and trucks. So far, none of these agreements appear to be in effect as part of the coronavirus response.

So lets ask ourselves, why are they holding their own resources back like this?

Even as China grapples with containing the corona virus outbreak, it's found time to intensify military pressure on Taiwan. Chinese warplanes approached Taiwan on Monday for the second day in a row. Taiwan defense ministry said it scrambled jets as Chinese PLA planes briefly crossed the sensitive median line of the Taiwan Strait. China then retreated to its side of the line. The day before, China''s aircraft had flown near Taiwan''s East Coast and prompted a rush by Taiwan to intercept.It’s two fighter jets side by side.
