“A Leaner Pentagon” (TIMES, 1/6/12)


     Why is it necessary to send “a clear message” that the United States “is not ceding anything in the Pacific to China”?  What territory in that vast area of the world is clearly of concern to the Pentagon leaders?

     There are many that could be called into question, from Taiwan on the extreme western side of the Pacific to the San Diego naval base on the west coast of the USA.  Do they think the leaders of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) have any designs on them?  Do the fear another attack on Pearl Harbor?  Precisely where are PRC naval units intent on seizing territory?

     We still need a clearer explication of the real intentions of the “leaner Pentagon.”
