Think about it, If Russia was to launch a nuke, it would either have to go north then south and cross Canada before it can get to US or go through another way. Most destinations however has something to do with crossing another country's territory.
Every country has its right to do whatever it can to protect it from such attacks. I wouldn't call it aggressive to be honest. I can see how it can be viewed as aggressive though. The arms sale to Taiwan; I wonder why they sold them weapons. Was it to help Taiwan against China more than to help the economy. I guess these moves can be viewed aggressive, but China I dont think should see it that way. US can't do anything without public backing when it comes to military standards (occupying or attacking a country). I may be overlooking something though.
I am new here by the way and hold no real military experience; only what I read in research and such

If China had either missiles or troops in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Mexico, would you see that as encirclement?
If China assured the United States that it is for a number of purposes that does not include "containing" the United States, would you believe it?

Well, if it is Missile defense, then I wouldnt complain about it. Of course not many people will agree with it.
When I said I dont see how it is encirclement, I meant I doubt the reasons of doing this is purely to encricle China like the OP seems to have said.
A good amount of these countries (like Poland) wanted these systems and asked for it. South Korea has it as everyone knows North Korea seems hostile. Japan has it because it is in reach of North Korea.
Any move militarily or economically can be viewed as aggressive to one's country. For example: China dumped some US bonds, not enough to do much, but some see that as aggressive.
All I am saying, I dont think and we all dont have proof if this is done specifically to encircle China. I believe this is done to persaude North Korea to stop its nuclear tests, therefore encircling North Korea.

This has really turned into a non topic:
The original poster has not supplied any information of a US encirclement. The best anyone has come up with is Japan and Korea. Both still allied with the US in defense from North Korea. On going since the end of WWII and the Korean War.
US selling weapons to Taiwan has been going on since the Nationalist Chinese set up government on the Island. 60 years?
In short the topic was dead on arrival.
The US is well aware the communist Chinese government does not like the US support of the Nationalists. The policy has not changed in 60 years.
Maybe the ChiComs bought into President Obama's "change" campaign.
If China had either missiles or troops in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Mexico, would you see that as encirclement?" quote 13Th_redneck
No, but it might equal about a 100 degree arc. Definitely not encirclement.
Same as the US missiles in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan might equal a 60 degree arc. Well short of encirclement.
Seems a few people may not have had Geometry?
