I'm just unsold that we should be expanding our navy. The only two threats that seriously affect our navy right now are China and Iran.

Moreover, neither of these countries are real threats to the United States. Instead, they are threats to regional stability, which we just shouldn't be in the business of policing anymore.

Let India, Taiwan and Japan figure out what to do about China and Saudi Arabia, China and India (the main sellers and buyers of Middle Eastern oil) figure out what to do about the Straights of Hormuz.
