Big #ONI reveal:

#China ALREADY has its own 355+ ship #navy, & within a decade will exceed that benchmark by 70 #ships!

At the end of 2020 China will have 360 battle force ships vs. @USNavy’s 297—over 60 more!…

#ONI: In 2025 #China’s #Navy will have 400 ships. In 2030, China’s Navy will have 425 ships.

Even if @USNavy reaches its current goal of 355+ by 2030, China’s Navy could still have 70 more ships.

This math is truly unforgiving!…
Given @USNavy’s dispersed global responsibilities vs. #China’s concentrated focus on being able to fight/win regional war over a sovereignty dispute, potentially vs. US & 1+ allies/partners, a sufficiently-sized #USNavy is required to preserve American security & vital interests.
