The Defense Department’s AUKUS nuclear submarine deal in the Pacific could take decades before the first sub could be deployed. Maj. Gen. John Ferrari (U.S. Army, Ret.) argues that’s the wrong message to send to China.

  • Ferrari praised the deal but said the Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday’s statement about its timeline broadcasts the United States’ weaknesses to adversaries.
  • Ferrari said increasing the number of submarines in the water by extending the life of existing boats would accelerate progress and “change the strategic calculus that China has to worry about.”
  • He added that the U.S. should immediately start enrolling Australian service members in nuclear reactor training programs.
