The Case For the Navy

Robert D. Kaplan, writing for the November 2007 edition of The Atlantic, in an article entitled "America's Elegant Decline" makes the case that the U.S. Navy is too small. He argues that "'Regular wars' between major states could be as frequent in the 21st century as they were in the 20th."

I think he's wrong, but it always pays to listen to those who make an intelligent and reasoned case disagreeing with your own views. I'm pressed for time at the moment, but will discuss his analysis and the problems with it, If I can.
