Blunting China's expansive claims in Asia

NY Times:
The American military presence in the Philippines has grown recently amid fear of a rising China, and top American and Philippine officials are meeting to discuss further buildup.
There is genuine concern in the Philippines about the attempt by China to claim mineral rights in Philippine territory.  The country asked the US military to give up its bases in the Philippines, but now sees US troops as an advantage in dealing with the China threat as well as the threat from militant Islamist in the south.  While the US is withdrawing troops from Okinawa they are moving troops to Guam and other Asian outpost as well as Australia to counter the Chinese threat.
