Abstract:

As Chinas maritime strength and influence grows, U.S. forward naval presence alone may not be enough to deter them from regional, as well as global ambitions. U.S. forces must also regularly demonstrate their strength, capabilities, and resolve through show of force operations. Show of force operations, supported by robust information operations, that relay U.S. strength and resolve to the People s Republic of China PRC, may prove effective in deterring PRC forces from challenging U.S. forces. Show of force operations will also send a clear signal to PRC leadership and to U.S. partners in the region that the United States intends to stay engaged militarily in the region.
