    - Static Aircraft Carriers and/or Marshaling Outposts!

    Reopen some these WWII island outpost, instead of trying to move Large Battle Groups around the globe. Reopen the Wake Island facilities and use is as a pre-positioning operations facility, with 72-hour or less response times. Station 3 or 5 Marine Corps Lockheed-Martin F’AV-35B LIGHTNING II’s on the island. Also station a squadron of LCS ship’s and maybe a few MCS/TSV as rapid Force Recon Marine Corps reactionary force. That might give the Chinese and/or the Russians some pause time to re-evaluate there regional power grabbing ideas.
