In the long term, Chinese naval power may be a challenge and a threat. However, the nation is generations behind the global capabilities of the world's greatest navy - the US Navy. As long as Democrats are not allowed to further decimate military funding, America's navy - with its 11 carriers (all twice the size of these "glorified ski boats" China is constructing (following the example of old Soviet-era carriers, which were NEVER on US Navy carrier levels), the US Navy will remain the pre-emminent global naval force. Our "allies" like Japan and even Australia might want to consider "helping" the defense and protection of the region with carriers of their own.
