    Trump and fore sure his replacement Biden plan to have total control of the world's oceans.

    Building more tubs to patrol irrelevant regions is not going to achieve much. The US desperately wants to control the
    North Sea route. If it thinks that more of its tubs will simply roll over Russia, it has another thing coming.

    Navy is useless in any war with Russia so no wonder why Russia is so helpful when it comes to assisting China with naval development and not considered with USA building it's own

    The more money either dump into navies the less of a threat they will be to Russia

    US doesn't have nor won't have in decades a proper fleet for the north. Russian vessels not only go through there, they have plenty of ice breakers, air defense systems around, subs and now military bases up there.

    There really isn't anything US can do. Russia's borders are already defined and US has stretched itself thin.

    They can have it if they want. With Chinas road and belt, control of the oceans will be much less important. China can trade on the Eurasian continent and the Americas will be irrelevant

    Aren't they planning to patrol the NSR including Russia's territorial and EEZ waters?

    Funny "coast guard" they have.
