Asia's Arms Race Escalates To Keep Pace With China

Yes, I realize that, in fact that's my point. The US has more warships in Asia then any other country. Yet when the WSJ reports about China making a few warships the US military dominance is ignored and its framed as if China is being aggressive when any rational assessment would say they are merely trying to make up a bit for the overwhelmi­ng dominance of US war power.

Imagine this: China has 5 aircraft carriers and all the various ships needed to support the task forces around them in ports throughout Central America, South America, and Canada. And the US has one aircraft carrier and decides to build a few subs to offset the vast China presence in the Americas. Would it make sense to describe THAT story as "US Escalates American Arms Race"?
