America's Navy (and Defense Chief) really don't have a solution to the Chinese Navy problem.

Wow. Cdr Salamander nailed it. I've come to the conclusion that our Navy is in trouble vs. the Chinese. We have no real plan. We're trying to match them in their seat of power...SHIP BUILDING! A 355 ship navy is irrelevant. No, this isn't a call saying that I've come around to supporting the Missile Marines. Nothing could be farther from the truth. What I am saying is that the service most responsible for combat at sea is rudderless and doesn't appear to have a clue to blunt Chinese Navy advances. A few unmanned ships ain't gonna cut. Quite honestly from my chair the US Navy would have to give up its worldwide responsbilities and concentrate on the Indo-Pacific to gain parity/MAYBE superiority. I'm calling it now. We saw the Russian scare for the past 4 years. In the face of future budget cuts get ready for the Chinese scare. ALL THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED IF THE PENTAGON, AND JCS ACTUALLY DID THEIR JOBS INSTEAD OF FEEDING THE POLITICAL SWAMP IN WASHINGTON DC. The seeds of our future defeat have been planted by this generation of generals.
