    Nobody has a navy to rival the US

    The last significant naval war was the Falklands. Harpoon missiles

    China is building a modern blue water navy so they disagree with you. Mahan's writings are as relevent now as they ever were. And the Falklands saw the use of Exocet missiles not Harpoons. Sadly, now that the Iowa class BB's have been decommissioned we no longer have a ship relatively immune to anti ship missiles.

    China is building that fleet off the interest we are paying on our debt.

    Go Navy!!!
