The article reports that Admiral Mike Mullen, chief of naval operations in the U.S., has emphasized the need for a new maritime strategy. He says that the U.S. Navy must come up with a fresh maritime strategy to confront new threats. Mullen thinks that the United States must exploit its inherent naval strengths to counter threats posed by terrorists and proliferators of weapons of mass destruction. The Navy must aim at ensuring the safety of the sea lanes. He also cited the Navy's response to the Indonesian tsunami as an example of how naval forces could influence both hearts and minds.
