Stephen Kinzer, senior fellow at the Watson Institute, writes an op-ed about the reasons countries desire to acquire strategic depth and how it sometimes sets off a spiral of escalating tensions. "Secure in our own neighborhood, with nothing on our borders but Mexico, Canada, and declining fish stocks, we do not always recognize other countries' drive for strategic depth," Kinzer wrote.
