The United States wants to limit Chinese military influence in Asia but with a terrible budget and debt problem they will be unable to increase their asian military capability as much as needed. The logical solution is to increase the military capabilities of allied asian nations. This can be done cheaply with surplus weapons such as Coast Guard Cutters and early model F16 Jets to the Philippines and Harrier VTOL Jump Jets for Thailands Aircraft Carrier.
