The no drama Obama response to Chinese aggression is danger to US and allies

NY Times:

Muted U.S. Response to China’s Seizure of  Drone Worries Allies

The incident is seen as one more reason to fear Beijing — and to doubt whether the American Navy will rise to the defense of allies in the region.
One of the problems is that the Navy has been greatly harmed by Obama's irresponsible cuts to defense spending.  It needs more ships and it needs a new civilian head of the Navy.  Under the current administration, they seem more concerned about naming ships after gays and anti-gun nuts than protecting the US interests.

They have wasted millions on unneeded alternative fuel projects at a time when there is a glut of traditional fuels.  The money would have been better spent on ships, sailors, and maintenance.
