China now has more warships than the U.S. — 350 vs. 293 — giving the communist regime the world’s largest navy, according to U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for China, Chad Sbragia.

Is America now paying the price for reduction of ships, inadequate funding, and leadership choices that have more to do with politics than victory? Or is this news just more Pentagon budget boosting public relations?
