Leaving aside for the moment the question of what constitutes a combat-credible force, it is fair to ask what evidence there is that naval forward presence helps to shape the international environment.
This is particularly true for naval forward presence. While various theories have been propounded as to the relationship between the pursuit of national objectives, the protection of regional interests, the suppression of sources of regional instability, and forward presence, none has any real data to support it.
It is sufficient here to point out that the fact that naval forward presence may be needed if land bases are not available does not make it the preferred solution.
Arguments that two submarines are needed to escort each of 12 battle groups provide justification for 24 more submarines than really are needed for naval forward presence missions.
For instance, the UNITAS exercise series, the principal naval forward presence activity in South America (annual exercises and port visits over a four-month period), involves fewer than half as many U.S.
Extensive naval forward presence in the Mediterranean did not keep oil prices low or supplies high during the 1970s, when two oil embargoes led to economic recession in the United States and Europe.
Also, the joint combatant commanders clearly want more rather than less naval forward presence. But even if all of these views were wrong, a reduction in forwar d operations of the fleet would not yield meaningful savings unless portions of the forces themselves were eliminated.
