Read this just now and thought that a few of you would be interested in this.

BBC News - Big powers jockey in the Pacific

"The US has been, is, and will continue to be a Pacific power. That was the fundamental message the US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta brought to this year's Asian security summit in Singapore.
Mr Panetta then headed off to Vietnam and India - two stops that highlight, in their different ways, two aspects of Washington's new security relationships in the Asia-Pacific region."

The US has spent the last few years building a ring around China...

1.) Australia being one of the biggest with the Marines moving an expeditionary force there...I can see the U.S. and Australia to only expand on this.
2.) Singapore...4 U.S. ships to be based there.
3.) Look for the U.S. to be back in Subic within 5 years. People are having regrets over this one now that the Dragon has become fully grown.
4.) U.S. beefing up Guam.
