Coalitionists believe that the confrontation calls for solidly mobilizing Europe (and eventually Japan) on America's side.
Internal to the alliance, this coalitionist decision involved an answer to the problem of "sharing," to employ the term in use, in the defense of Europe, which was not truly threatened.
Here the American option is more maritimist than coalitionist.
Both, maritimist and coalitionist, place themselves in the perspective of global hegemony.
In all events, the basic American-Euro-Japanese alliance implies a coalitionist strategy and sets aside maritime theory.
