China wants more military bases abroad. How should the West respond?

“But five years after it opened—to the alarm of Western officials—China’s naval base in Djibouti, on the Horn of Africa, remains its only military bastion beyond its borders.

While China has more ships in terms of tonnage the US navy is three times greater.
