Colucci makes case for restoring U.S. maritime power
In “The Next Secretary’s Task,” published in Defense News, Lamont Colucci, associate professor and chair of politics and government and interim director of the Center for Politics and the People at Ripon College, discusses the recent resignation of U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and makes a case that restoring U.S. maritime power to its position of strength should be a top priority of the next defense secretary.
“The global system is dependent on the preservation of open and safe waterways,” Colucci writes. “ … The American carrier fleet is seen by many as the ultimate offensive platform to project power. It is also the greatest tool for stability in the international system, granting the United States multiple strategic alternatives in the face of global conflict.”
