About this lecture series

Lectures of Opportunity (LOOs) offer Naval War College (NWC) students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to learn more about national and international socio-political subjects that may be of relevance to the NWC community.

Synopsis

As the U.S. refines its international role in the 21st century, and particularly its fractious relationships with both Russia and China, are we learning the wrong lessons from history? What if the "strategic clarity" that had shaped the past decades no longer exists? By attempting to fit the geopolitical future into a pre-existing Cold War mold, will the U.S. mortgage its position of strength?

Ali Wyne will discuss his recent piece in The National Interest (available at https://nationalinterest.org/feature/can-america-remain-number-one-44627) and explain why the U.S. experience over the past century remains relevant and useful for shaping U.S. national security policy for the future.
