ABSTRACT
The article reports that the United States will prevail in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and wherever else the war on terror leads. But safeguarding America's security and achieving peace require that the Navy execute missions that may have little to do with defeating Islamic extremists--missions that more broadly promote all elements of American foreign policy and economic security. Although the aftermath of recent natural disasters may lead to a larger role for the Navy in future relief and recovery operations at home, a forward-postured navy is an essential component of defending American soil and American interests. The key to successful maritime security and war on terrorism operations lies in employing networked ships and individual units where they can best affect local and regional outcomes and contribute to global maritime awareness.
