Offshore Balancing
Sharing is caring
My Big Idea is the implementation of Offshore Balancing (OB). OB will replace current military strategy of forward deployment (slightly altered under the Obama Administration). My big idea has three steps that create a gradual shift of power projection to OB.1: Address the potential for conflict between China and the US in the SCS through an IAS Agreement as well as understanding of our Nuclear Use Policy increasing trust between the two nations.2: Further strengthen cooperation at multiple levels with regional powers who have global aspirations.3: Adjust US military force positioning to reflect a multipolar world.Result: a world framework that is highly resilient to violent instability and is more cooperative amongst global powers.We need to start a serious national dialogue that there ARE alternatives to the exclusive use of military force as foreign policy and that security CAN exist in a world that doesn't have the United States operating an empire of bases abroad.
