If China is apposed to the deployment, they only have themselves to blame by not getting thier ally N Korea under control. Their provocative actions and statements can only expect to draw attention and hardware. It will continue to happen until a change occurs. The fact it puts the ship close to China and the South China Sea is a plus for the US and a negative for China. As long as the excuse exists more hardware can be expected.
