If there is no threat to cut China's lifeline in the Indian Ocean (or is it the Sino-African Ocean?) and the Straits of Malacca, China wouldn't have bothered with Soith Asia.

China has to control South China Sea. China's trade with other countries depends on the South China Sea.

No, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myannmar and Laos are in South East Asia. This is a strategic area separating East Asia (including the South China Sea) from South Asia (Indian subcontinent and Indian Ocean).

The US wants to encourage and legitimize an Indian expansion eastward into East Asia, which would require India gaining overlordship over and crossing South East Asia. Hence, the US is unilaterally renaming Asia-Pacific to the mythological "Indo-Pacific".

Well, Uncle Sam has a bad habit of changing things when it's not going its way.
