Given China's new found aggressive postures and hegemonic pursuits, there is no doubt that without America's alliances in the Asia-Pacific the region would be more volatile. It is the US presence that cooled off the China Philippines crisis and has checked to some extent China's grab in the South China Seas. The US' new partnerships with the likes of India, Myanmar and Vietnam wasn't an indication of the US imposing its will but, in actuality, responding to strong demand for it from the region to countervail the Chinese grab methodology. There is no doubt that the US' 'Asia Pivot' directional strategy is preventing China from having a free run. Therefore, it is not usual that wails are fear crazed emanating from China's Defense Minister Chang Wanquan and Xi beating his chest with the mush of 'multipolar world'.
