The U.S. Navy’s Loss of Command of the Seas to China and How to Regain It

Joe Sestak   

In 2005, a U.S. Navy plan was forwarded to Congress: It entailed reducing force structure and transforming to a capabilities-based forward force posture. However, the Navy continued to pursue unattainable force levels and, today, has lost command of the seas to China in the Western Pacific. China’s pace of war is the speed of light through cyberspace, leaving U.S. forces blind and deaf, while America’s is 30 knots, taking weeks to arrive at the fight. A fundamental shift in mindset needs to be made. The focus should no longer be on the number of hulls, but on a return to the plan for a capabilities-based, more forward force posture, primarily by commanding cyberspace in order to regain command of the seas.
 

“There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success … than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies … and only lukewarm defenders.

Assertion from the article:
"However, the Navy continued to pursue unattainable force levels and, today, has lost command of the seas to China in the Western Pacific."

Assertion from the Fishrrman:
The only way the United States will ever "get back" such "lost command" will be an all-out war with China, in which we become the victor.

Probably not gonna happen.

Please clarify; probably not gonna happen they we go to war with China or probably not going to happen the we become the victor?
I BELIEVE in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a REPUBLIC; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states, a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of FREEDOM, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it IS my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

---------------------------------
Just wondering about the US Navy's loss of command of the seas to China?
Did this occur because of China's creation/invention of the Marble Warship???
