GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
Earlier this month, the Congressional Research Service published a short primer on the linkages between geography and U.S. political/military strategy and design of U.S. forces. This article from the U.S. Naval Institute shares the CRS report and provides its own context: "Most of the world’s people, resources, and economic activity are located not in the Western Hemisphere, but in the other hemisphere, particularly Eurasia. In response to this basic feature of world geography, U.S. policymakers for the last several decades have chosen to pursue, as a key element of U.S. national strategy, a goal of preventing the emergence of regional hegemons in Eurasia." news.usni.org/2020/11/06/report-on-world-geography-and-u-s-strategy
