The US military has over-invested into weapons which work well for launching attacks on countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria but are quite ineffective for countries like Russia and China, media outlet Flight Global reports.Story here.
The US military has over-invested in purchasing short- range direct attack bombs and has under-invested in the long-range, stealth and precision-guided weapons.
Due to that, the United States cannot overcome the defenses of such countries as Russia, China and Iran. This conclusion was reached by experts of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, reports media outlet Flight Global.
I contend that this extends across the entire structure of the military as we see it today.
The COIN Mafia has won/is winning but the nation is losing.
Our enemies must be licking their chops. Where once they feared engaging us in conventional warfare, they now see possibilities.
