Join Sal from the blog "CDR Salamander" and EagleOne from the blog "EagleSpeak" as they look at multilateralism at sea; how different nation's navies work together.
From piracy to exercises to warfighting - what are the plusses and minuses of working with other nations at sea? Are we leveraging the capabilities of other nations enough - or are we in danger of relying on them too much? How does the American Navy see working with other naval forces - and how do they look at working with us? What special capabilities do other nations have that we don't, and what could we learn from them? What do the lessons from multilateralism in ground combat in Afghanistan, and multilateralism against pirates tell us?
