    It looks good, but how long can US keep it present in SEA? That's the questions on all ASEAN countries mind.

    Well,
    With india's support they be there for ever. China can outlast US. But china cannot outlast India. India is just getting warmed up here.
    We are this for at least 50 year marathon.

    What will be China's reaction?

    Obviously, China will cry blue murder since it will curb their hegemonic spread and will ensure that they are resource denied.

    Indeed, from the Chinese point of view, it is aggression!

    China claims, as we see the Chinese posters claiming so, that the US is weak and feeble and is a toothless Tiger!

    If this is toothless, then being toothless takes a new meaning.

    It is so unfortunate that US is coming in the way of China weaving her dream!

    But can they (China) do anything?

    So the US has managed to hype China as a threat to the "freedom of navigation" in the west Pacific and bit by bit inflate concerned states' confidence in confrontation against China in illusions like the US or India may come to their aid rather than seeking mutually acceptable solutions. But time will come that the states be left high and dry, like the US did to South Vietnam, or even Pakistan like used ....
