America would never risk exposing its ground forces to the PLA Military in direct action - they learned their lesson during the Korean War.


Yes and no.  I grew up during the Korean conflict.  Chinese soldiers, then and now, are fierce, heroic, fighting men.  All the United Nations forces were awed by the "human wave" attacks - especially considering that many of the Chinese soldiers were carrying clubs instead of rifles.  No one had seen that kind of action since the Japanese sent waves of young boys carrying sticks and rakes, against Allied troops.  The concept is unimmaginable to Westerners, except as a desperate "last-ditch-effort."

There is one way America will risk ground forces against the PLA, (and it would be a terrible fight for both sides).  And that is in the event of a Chinese First-Strike.  But China has vowed that will never happen, right?   So no problem.
