Battle of the Steves
Good analysis by Steven Den Beste on how we may wage war on Iraq — and why we may end up using a tactical nuke or two.
However, I find him overly pessimistic. Iraqi command-and-control problems will be even worse this go-around than it was in 1991 — they’ll hardly know where their own formations are, much less ours. We’re that good now at shutting off enemy communications. Furthermore, I think he overestimates how many combat troops we’ll commit to the theater. This won’t quite be a repeat of the Afghan campaign, but it will look more like than than the ’91 war.
Anyway, go read Steven’s stuff. Whether you agree or not, it’s certainly thought-provoking.
