    Rather incredible assumptions.

    by 2015 the fleet of China would be not stronger, but at least comparable to the US fleet in Pacific Ocean and so on.

    Not in the Pacific Ocean, but possibly within the 1st Island Chain, once you factor in land-based aviation and missile assets.

    Will it be China or Japan who will fire the first shots,that's the real question.

    Both sides have enough OTH, satellite, and AWACS to detect a first shot long before it hits them. The Western Pacific is the 2nd-most-heavily surveilled battlespace in the world, right after the stretch of the Arctic between Northeastern Canada and Northwestern Russia.

    The first step for Japan is to get an independent nuclear deterrent like I said in fhe other thread. Disband the pacifist constitution.
