China is expected to have three aircraft carriers to the United States’ one stationed in the western Pacific by 2025, according to Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss. Ships from the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group and the America Expeditionary Strike Group transit the South China Sea.
“If we don’t make changes in our posture forward, it will demonstrate that the Chinese have much greater capacity than we have.”
