Re(5): The Navy is resurrecting a fleet to protect the East Coast and North Atlantic from Russia Posted on 5/21/2018 at 08:45:43 by John Wells
One thing we can count on: Admirals and generals tend to fight the last war, to quote “lessons learned” from it, and to cite history as proof of their assertions. The decision to re-establish the Second Fleet seems to come from such mindsets. What I think they miss is taking into account the advances in technology in both weapons and satellite-based intelligence systems. I don’t know enough to say whether the Second Fleet should or should not come into being, but I suspect it’s not a wise decision, especially from an economical p.o.v.
