Offshore Control & the Asia/Pacific Challenge, on Midrats



With significant budget cuts already underway and expected for years, how do we adjust through the Pacific Pivot as these cuts take place, yet still remain postured to influence the region in peacetime and defend our national interests in war?

What is the best way to match required capabilities inside an economically sustainable military budget?

While many are familiar with the concept of “Offshore Balancing” – what is “Offshore Control?”

Join EagleOne of Eaglespeak and me this Sunday from 5-6pm EST with our guest for the full hour, Colonel T.X. Hammes, USMC (Ret.), to discuss the concept he raises in his latest article in the United States Naval Institute’s Proceedings, Offshore Control is the Answer.

Col. Hammes served thirty years in the Marine Corps at all levels in the operating forces.  He participated in stabilization operations in Somalia and Iraq as well as training insurgents in various places. 

He has a Masters in Historical Research and a Doctorate in Modern History from Oxford University, and is currently a Distinguished Research Fellow at the Institute for National Strategic Studies, National Defense University and an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University. 

He is the author of “The Sling and the Stone: On War in the Twenty-First Century” and “Forgotten Warriors:  The 1st Provisional Marine Brigade, the Corps Ethos, and the Korean War,” and many articles and opinion pieces. He has lectured at U.S. and International Staff and War Colleges.
