Would Japan help the US in a war against North Korea?
It would depend upon the policies persued by either side- Japan would seek every possible means to avoid becoming a target, and much prefers that the US persues the diplomatic route to defusing tensions with North Korea. It would be unwilling to host a US military presence, as this would most surely make it a legitimate target in the eyes of the North Korean regime- however, if Kim Jong-Un launched an attack against Japan anyway (simply due to Japan being an economically powerful capitalist country with strong economic and business ties to the United States), then the Japanese would welcome American support against North Korean aggression. Ever since WW2, Japan has been forbidden by the international community from developing an army powerful enough to take offensive action, and also from developing the atom bomb- it's military strength is confined to a defensive role only, in the event of aggressive behaviour from another country. Japanese atrocities committed during the last World War are still too fresh in people's minds for Japan to be seen sending troops or warships to attack another nation, even if it was once again the victim of a nuclear strike- it's main support of the US would be economic, logistical, and technical, although if the situation became VERY bad, then the Japanese Government may feel that it had nothing to lose by allowing US troops, aircraft and battleships to be stationed within it's territory.

Answer . \nIt would more than likely cause WWIII as China would almost certainly retaliate.. Answer . \nThe world would be at war once again for the third time
China gave direct help including direct intervention of their armed forces. The Soviet Union also quietly assisted North Korea. So the answer will be , The Soviet Union & Ch…ina.
The US did not help North Korea. The US was part of the UN multinational force that went to war with North Korea.
They invaded South Korea, the people are starving and have famine. No freedom a basic US ideal, North Korea's diplomacy is unpredictable and radical. and if you want to be m…ore specific with your question please do.
Probably if North Korea started a war, USA would go on and help South Korea for they are more friendly and because of similar government. China would help North Korea because …of their similar government too. Japan would help South Korea because they are more of a close friend. Not because of a similar government.. if North Korea started a war, it would be my guess that USA, Japan, and China will help South Korea because North Korea is trying to send nuclear bombs to USA and other places.
America would go in and start another war (as it did the first time, and has done with most countries in the Middle East); Japan would assist America where it could, but would… leave them to most of the work; China would either partially support the North or just stay out of the conflict.
If past history is any indication, China will back North Korea. One wrench in that theory is the recent move China made in the UN Security Counsel when they supported increase…d sanctions against North Korea. In the light of current events, the worst that can be expected is that China will remain out of any potential conflict. Of course it depends on just how insane Kim Jong-un is, and whether he makes such a foolish move as to use nuclear weapons as he has threatened against the US. The most likely scenario would be a launch and the shooting down of any missile, and then limited military response in the way of bombers with conventional explosives against strategic targets by the US and her allies.
Okay this shouldn't even be a question. First of all the US is the most powerful country this side of the Galaxy, north Korea Isnt even half that They are extremely poor, they… have only one Major ally in China who would not risk its thriving economy whit defending puny little KIm Jong Il. They may have nukes but so do we and if they do that then they might as well be Martyrs because the US has plenty of its own and would easily wipe North Korea off the map literally. We have way more firepower via cruise missles, predator drones, stealth bomberrs(The US is the only country to own one) plus with the help of the South Korean Army this war would end in less than 2 years. They may have a massive army but I completely doubt that North Korea would stand a chance against the Superpower of The United States GOD BLESS AMERICA
A relatively new nation with relatively new atomic technology about 1/50th the size of the US...and up against THE "originator" of ATOMIC WARFARE as well as the current and pa…st most powerful nation on the globe (since 1945) with an absolutely unlimited amount of people (human population) & resources (trees, oil, steel, copper, gold, silver, lead, paper, cloth, food, gunpowder, guns, cars, land, jobs, plastic, etc. etc. etc.). Possible...but highly improbable. Note: There are currently more trees in California NOW than there were during the pre-gold rush years of 1849; the trees that were planted in California during the 1950's & 1960's are all fully grown now. And no one's been cutting trees since! (Except for extremely rare and highly controlled situations). One sample reference: "Fire In Sierra Nevada Forests" A Photographic Interpretation of Ecological Change since 1849. By George E. Gruell (2001).
Probably not; the US isn't interested in fighting wars in Asia anymore. At least that part of Asia. Asia may or not be allies. You never know. China could side with North K…orea like they did in the Korean War. On the other hand Russia could side with North Korea as well. That would be the start of WW3. We have the UN. and NATO. Plenty of help. Actually, a WW3 won't occur unless North Korea attacks South Korea. . Well your both wrong a bit. Russia said they wont get involved in this conflict. That i cant believe. Hopefully Russia stays out of it all. But they wont nuke South Korea. South Korea is too close to them and North Korea wont want to nuke part of themselves.
ROK (Republic of South Korea)/allies won the war by defeating North Korea/allies attempt to conquer them. Another words the communists FAILED to attain their objective (the c…onquest of ROK).
The Korean War (Korean Conflict)
In South Korea
No, there is no known war between the North Korea and south Korea, but that can change North Korea may attack the south, but South Korea is way ahead against North Korea in mi…litary technology, weapons etc.
Neither, because the French had already left, and Korea was a completely different country, retard.
No. Japan occupied all of Korea from before WW1 until 1945
In World War 2
What was the island hopping strategy and how did the alliwes use it to help win the war against japan?
The island hopping campaign strategy consisted of attacking Japanese held island that could be used to land allied airplanes or be used for supply bases or hospital bases. The… idea was not to go island by island but to go after the islands that would best suit the allied forces and also to destroy the islands where the Japanese had a lot of military personnel and equipment. They wanted to get closer and closer to Japan. They had to start near Australia and the in the West Indies first because Japan was a huge problem in that area. The strategy and the actual carrying out of the plan is complex. See the links below to see which islands they went to and what happened on those islands. Many allied pilots and air crews were extremely grateful for the allied captured islands having airfields. Some were seen to get down on the ground and kiss it after they landed on Guadalcanal, Saipan and Iwo Jima. Some say they would have died in the ocean had the island airfields not been there for them to land.
