#2 Well written.
In the last four years, this myth has transformed the president, as well as the current Secretary of Defense, into door mats for the four-stars.
Not a myth, and clearly the doormattedness of these individuals has required an expanded role for the military ADVISORS.

#3 Hindsight tells us that machine guns and artillery would kill millions of infantrymen during World War I and that command of the airspace would be vital to the outcome of battles on land and sea

those weapons still work. It's the failure of political will and ridiculous PC ROE that make the asymmetric war so successful for our opponents

#4 No. It's the unrealistic goals Frank G. You can't import democracy/rule of law.

#5 Ala 1990's CLINTONISM + GLOBALISM, I thought the strategeeery was for the US to "absorb/tolerate" a major Nuke-WMD attack from a "rogue" Govt(s)-State(s), + NOT respond militarily decisively to same???

By that scope, iff China does succeed in destroying the JSDF over the Senkakus in NE Asia, THE US IS SUPPOS TO "TOLERATE" CHINA'S SPOILS-OF-WAR TAKEOVER OF THE SENKAKUS + LIKELY OKINAWA [Yonaguni? Okinoroti?] FROM A DEFEATED OR DESTROYED NIPPON???
