    I doubt the US being a Super Power will leave the area/region. You should know that the USN 7th Fleet last year changed its designation from "Pacific Command" to "Indo-Pacific" Command, meaning its ships will continue to traverse the seas from the Western Pacific to the Indian Ocean. China knows this, and as the other Super Power would have already made military /naval contingency plans to counter eventualities. Every nation wants Peace and should focus on Economic Prosperity. You may know/heard of the "Thucydides Trap" between two competing strong/big powerful countries - the case of ancient Athens & martial Sparta. They were involved in Peloponnesian War between 499 and 449 BC. I believe both China & US War Colleges & their Senior Military Officers know this historical war background. Similar hostilities/War could be repeated in the 21st Century. Most people of the world prefer that 2 major powers must cooperate & work towards PEACE, & hopefully not be foolish to fan the flames of hostilities that will ultimately result in disaster.

    But that is not possible like the Chinese proverb says No 2 tigers can in-habit the same region. Anyway. Why is this a tanker look more like a ferry and supplied ship than tanker

    The second 8000-ton tanker, dedicated to transport between Chinese islets in the South China Sea, will soon be put on hold. The construction of the 129 blocks is complete and the systems are being delivered. This is one of the two San Sha 1 sisterships.

    Those are China's largest adjustable pitch screws to date.

    I understand the Chinese proverb "No 2 Tigers cannot inhabit the same "forest" (region)". Perhaps they could IF both are reasonable & pragmatic tigers. In the world of globalisation for trade & investments, there would be very little choice but to cooperate with most countries for mutual benefits. We cannot (not in today's context) restrict any Big Tiger from roaming to other regions......not only to Asia but also to the EU, USA, ME etc., and join other Tigers who are amiable, friendly & not antagonistic or hypocritical. "Gong Xi Fa Cai" to all my Chinese friends in this Professional Chat Group.

    Likely a mistranslation here. The original text in French should mean "will soon be laid down" rather than "will soon be put on hold".

    I know and agree with you on much of what you said.
    I also know of, and are aware of the theory of "thucydides trap". However it is a theory. And it's not always been born out by empirical evidence such as when the US eclipse the UK did not end in war.
    the reason I replied to your earlier post was that you stated you wish for peace in the region and we should therefore all get together including the US, and quoting Churchill should "Jaw Jaw NOT War War".
    I simply suggest that the reason for the lack of peace is due to outsiders interfering, by introducing spanners in the work, and thus stopped the processes of "Jaw Jaw" from happening.
    I basically suggest thetefire peace through "Jaw Jaw" is only possible if this outsider leave immediately!
