The article argues that the best deployment mode for the U.S. Navy is to remain focused on the Middle East and Western Pacific, so that it can support its most significant strategic challenges and thwart terrorist attacks with weapons of mass destruction. The critical elements in executing this model are the need to station more forces and increase the reliance on allies and partners in the areas outside these two hubs in Middle East and Indian Ocean, and in the Pacific.
