    Eventually China will have to be confronted and forced back to their Law of the Sea Treaty borders, to which China is a signatory. Their ridiculously unjust territorial ambitions on nearly every border, should have been used long ago by the stupid Obama, to create an economic and military alliance in Asia very favorable to the US.

      China has been playing this game for a very long time. America’s goal in the region is not to help anyone “win” centuries-old regional micturation contests against their neighbors over uninhabitable coral reefs and shipwreck-festooned fists of rock. America’s military alliances in Asia are in better shape (from America’s point of view) than ever before, since our allies are finally open to sharing meaningfully in the burden of contributing to them.

      Isn’t it the stupidity of China’s actions which is creatingthe favorable environment to which you refer?
