The Biggest Issues Facing Our Navy And Military Strategy Across The Seas

Bryan McGrath

Bryan McGrath is deputy director of the Center for American Seapower at the Hudson Institute. McGrath joined The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss a range of national security issues facing our Navy, including the size of its fleet, the Western Pacific, and military technology.

McGrath said we have overused the Navy while it’s become progressively smaller. “When the world gets no smaller, and the fleet does get smaller, and you overuse that fleet, you use it up faster,” he said. “We have a Navy that is too small for the things we ask of it and we have not taken care of it.”

Domenech and McGrath discussed military strategy and how the Navy should respond to threats from other world powers like China. “We will not cede one inch of sea space. We will sail proudly and routinely through international waters as we sit fit when we see fit,” McGrath said.
