The United States must respond more aggressively to China's territorial claims in Asia, an influential U.S. Republican said on Thursday, warning that failure to do so would bring "death by a thousand cuts." Mike Rogers, chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives' intelligence committee, said Washington should be less concerned with Chinese sensibilities when dealing with Beijing. He told a conference at Washington's Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank, "We need to be more direct; we need to be more aggressive." Rogers said, "Ways to do this included increased sharing of intelligence and expanded military cooperation with China's neighbors."
