Maritime Chokepoints: Key Sea Lines of Communication (SLOCs) and Strategy   [open pdf - 937KB]

"Does U.S. military strategy adequately address maritime chokepoints or is there an oversight awaiting an untimely catastrophic event? The importance of sea lines of communication (SLOCs), especially chokepoints, have been constant throughout history. When geopolitical issues associated with SLOCs have been misunderstood or overlooked, the consequences have been severe. The United States needs to ensure that current strategy and resources properly address modem and future SLOC issues. This paper examines SLOC issues and whether or not the United States is properly addressing such issues accordingly."
