Q: what role will china play in a possible WW3?

isreal is threatening to attack iran (without cause) isreal's slave state (usa) even framed iran for an assasination plot to try and set the stage. if isreal goes through with this, and iran responds they way they should (i believe if attacked annihilate the sob who attacked you) and the usa (owned by isreal) enters into the conflict, likely bringing russia in on the side of iran ... NATO, arab states and a whole lotta mess.
what would china do? would china fight against the nations they rely on to buy their goods? would china just remain neutral?
remember this is "what if"

As Old Gunslinger & Nevermind points out, China lacks both the needed unity and mobility to strike anywhere that isn't within walking distance.  An analyst once pointed out that if China were to attack Taiwan, it would lose about 80% of its navy & up to 100% of its airforce before the first soldier entered the country.

Taiwan is not a military giant, but like China, they are designed to repel invaders, not be the invader themselves.  Unlike the US who's military is primarily designed for invasion.

First off, Isreal is just flexing muscles, they will not attack nor would the US let them.  Isreal is funded and protected by the US, not the other way around, and will not do anything like this without their blessing...which will not happen...at least under Obama.
But "if" this happened, I would say China would stay neutral and watch everyone else massacre each other.
As for the big stupid plot, I find it hard to believe the US would create something so farcical, but would not put it past the Mossad.

I don't believe this whole thing was any sort of plot by the U.S. I mean, that would just be incredibly stupid and the Obama administration would get absolutely no benefit from something like that , if for no other reason than hello politics ?! He'd never get reelected. Bringing the troops out of Iraq to prepare for what you are saying would result in WW3 ? Like what ? And the USA is not at all owned by Israel, no country in the world receives more aid from the U.S. than Israel and the only reason Iran has not wiped Israel off the face of the earth like Ahmadinejad was talking about way back is TOTALLY because of Israel's support by/from the U.S. I don't see the big deal about Israel threatening to attack Iran, Iran only does the same thing hmm every day . Like the dude says, they're flexing.

Attacking Iran or allowing Israel to do it and supporthing them would be another Iraq. Not even the Republicans want that.

I don't think China would get involved because I don't think there's any chance in hell of what you said being true or happening.

China would probably urge them to have peacetalks, but won't get involved. However, I'm sure that China would also find some sort of advantage from it. What would China do while Russia, the US and other major countries are distracted with a major war...?

China won't be fighting anyone. This country is not NEARLY as stable as they would have you believe and any serious war involving China could lead to a civil war at home.

China's role in WW3? - target Smile

If such a scenario occurred in some way, a) Israel would get wiped pretty quickly by a few of the other arab nations surrounding it. b) while the USA would probably love to intervene, it will do so conventionally, though I could see troops being deployed, under another guise (similar to what happened when they invaded Iraq and Afghanistan... ie, they'll just make up an excuse)*. c), Russia and the rest of Europe would stay out of it - they're not that stupid!

 

I think Israel is slowly starting to realise that the 'war-guilt' that many countries had after WW2 is wearing off, and so they are losing support by, as people above said, 'flexing'. So, USA's usual allies wouldn't help out as in the past.

China would stay out of it as well... except for making more money in the US selling more copies of stuff.

The main problem is, such a war is unlikely to stay local... Israel takes on Iran... Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Saudi, etc help out Iran and start beating up on Israel... the USA helps out Israel... the rest of Europe gets scared it's oil is about to disappear... but, worst of all, someone somewhere drops a nuke... then another, then all over the world, fundamentalists (from lots of different sides) come out and start bombing... China decides to re-acquire Taiwan (hoping no-one will notice in the fray), as well as the islands they've been missing... and it's time to get ready to play Fallout3....

Simple: They'll play the 'victim' and start making more outrageous claims to their neighbors' lands.

Shining_brow:

And, once they've claimed them, put their military on them, told the rest of the world that any military ships that go near the area as "risking peace"... and then telling everyone that the only way to solve this is through negotiation!

The world is more mature and China and U.S will find away to deal with like adults. Not a war. Iran will be the victim.

@Shining
Exactly my point!
They'll take advantage of the chaos to claim some more land, then play the victim as both their justification and their defense E.G. "we suffered humiliation and lost this land, and now YOU are risking the peace by trying to take our 'newly re-acquired' land back!"

A:Weird jobs you say? China has plenty. The guys who work in bath houses and whose job it is to scrub guys down... that's got to suck.I've seen it. There will be a (usually fat) naked dude lying on a table, and the scrubber who is also near naked goes over him top to bottom with what looks like a scouring glove. They get right in there..lift the nuts, spread the cheeks and everything. God knows why anyone would pay for that but it seems they do. Then there are the eunuchs who became high-ranking public servants back in the day.Nowadays I don't think it's very common for them to be high-ranking, I think most just became wumaos - but a lot of them self castrated themselves to get the job.It must have been a hell of a decision to make...if you decide you'd prefer to be a plumber or rickshaw driver after a couple of years on the job there's no reversing the surgery. The people who stand in front of a shoe or clothing store and clap to attract customers- sometimes they will chant in unison - that's another job I always thought was bizarre. The supermarket staff whose job seems to be to stand in groups of three gossiping and blocking the aisles so you can't go down them, you have to turn around and go down the next aisle that probably has a sale on shampoo or expired tofu that day. The 'English Teachers' who can't communicate with the foreign teachers, or even their students in English but will tell anyone who listens how the foreign speaker is 'wrong'.Their jobs seem to be to unteach whatever English the kids are able to pick up.It's strange, but they do exist. If you're really looking for a great career though I suggest being the worthless lazy offspring of someone with good connections. Being stupid will help your prospects a lot.You'll be given a job with a decent salary, pension etc and all you need to do is play with your phone all day and be you. You'll never be asked to do anything or probably even show up at the office. In fact they'd probably prefer it if you just kept out of the way.      -- Stiggs
