A “bimodal” national military strategy would have two, and only two, objectives: first, the capabilities to deal with a peer competitor, and second, the means to conduct several small operations concurrently. What capabilities would the naval forces need? Would they cost no more than our present capabilities? Would this bimodal force be capable of dealing with other situations?
