Africa? Michael Scheuer, whose name came up in yesterday's discussion, suspects that we are going to find actual vital interests challenged in Africom's area of responsibility. At the moment, I suspect that I am primarily a "navalist": any conflict with China would be primarily naval and, in the somewhat unlikely event of armed trouble with Iran, our real interest would be in keeping the Hormuz Straits open--clearly a naval thing.
