American dominance is being challenged
Which leads to my second point, the USA rules the seas - all of the seas - and no other single country can come close. For example:
- Of the 19 active air craft carriers the U.S. has 10 of them, China and Russia 1 each.
- Destroyers: U.S.: 62, China 25, Russia 12.
- Were the U.S. does lag behind is subs. The U.S. has 71 missile & attack subs to China's 69 and Russia's 49.
- All in the U.S. has approximately 3+ Million tons of naval power, China 1 million and Russia 900,000.
I would note that the U.S. did not lead the world in nuclear arms talks with the Iranians, the Obama regime lead the rise of Iran to be a legitimate nuclear armed country in less than a decade. No one, save this author apparently, believes that Iran will abide to any agreement with the U.S.
