Editor's Note:All the information included in the weekly naval update is drawn from publicly disclosed sources. Last week's inaccurate positioning of the USS Carl Vinson reflected open source information that was available at the time.
The Naval Update Map shows the approximate current locations of U.S. Carrier Strike Groups and Amphibious Ready Groups, based on available open-source information.
No classified or operationally sensitive information is included in this weekly update. CSGs and ARGs are the keys to U.S. dominance over the world's oceans.
A CSG is centered on an aircraft carrier, which projects U.S. naval and air power and supports a Carrier Air Wing, or CVW. The CSG includes significant offensive strike capability.
An ARG is centered on three amphibious warfare ships, with a Marine Expeditionary Unit embarked. An MEU is built around a heavily reinforced and mobile battalion of Marines.
Carrier Strike Groups
• The USS Nimitz is underway in the Pacific Ocean conducting a Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX).
• The USS Carl Vinson CSG is underway in the U.S. 7th Fleet AOR on a Western Pacific deployment.
• The USS Theodore Roosevelt is underway in the Pacific Ocean conducting a tailored ship's training availability off the coast of Southern California.
• The USS George H.W. Bush CSG is underway in a deployment in the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR supporting maritime security operations and conducting theater security cooperation efforts.
Amphibious Ready Groups/Marine Expeditionary Units
• The USS Bataan ARG is underway in a deployment in the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR supporting maritime security operations and conducting theater security cooperation efforts.
• The USS Makin Island ARG is underway in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to enhance amphibious capability with regional partners.

We have already discussed in the first part of this analysis how the American geography dooms whoever controls the territory to being a global power, but there are a number of other outcomes that shape what that power will be like.
