US starts to consider China a serious threat

What a coincidence - on the very day I publish all those Chinese military hardware pics, the Herald runs a story from Reuters about the next chief of the US Air Force mentioning China as a growing threat:
Moseley said the right mix of long-range strike capabilities was 'certainly one of the things that we are struggling with' as part of a sweeping US defence review carried out once every four years and currently under way.

'The enhancements that we see in the Chinese military (do) cause concern,' he added in reply to a question from senator John Thune, a South Dakota Republican. "

"That is at the top of my list ... long-range strike and the ability to do that for this country," said Moseley, the vice chief of staff up to replace the retiring Gen. John Jumper.
Of course the 'expert' Reuters quotes is only a former Air Force Colonel, so take the entire item with a grain of salt.
