Rubio: China close to ‘destroying our alliances’ in Pacific

“China is in the process of ‘destroying our alliances’ on the Pacific Rim, a prominent Republican lawmaker warned Wednesday. ‘They are on the verge of achieving their goal of destroying our alliances in the Indo-Pacific by making keeping our defense commitments too costly to keep,’ Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tweeted Wednesday. Rubio was responding to reports that China ‘has shifted the balance of power in the Pacific’ by assembling and modernizing a fleet capable of going toe-to-toe with the United States the Indo-Pacific. China’s emergence as a major naval power punctuates the growing U.S. consensus that the Communist regime poses a worldwide strategic threat to the United States.”
