Watching military expansion in China

Regarding the letter “China navy a threat to America”:

The letter writer is on the money about China’s military expansion. China has been increasing its military spending by 12 percent each year for the past 10 years and could surpass America’s defense budget in the next 20 years. Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and others in the region are shaking in their boots. Why? Because if China were to have this much military hardware in place in these areas, the United States might not be able to stop China from taking over. These countries look to America as their security. If China were to take over this region, what next? China is not to be taken lightly.
