Never was a Marine division in greater danger of being cut to pieces....

My fear with distributed operations?

We'll see this in the future except instead of facing the combined power of a Marine Division the enemy will be facing scattered pockets of small units that are unable to withstand the onslaught.

How do you dismantle an anti-air network?  You take apart its pieces.  How do you destroy a distributed force?  You take apart individual pieces.

The Chinese are one thing.


Deliberate attacks at key nodes of our distributed force will hazard our entire effort.  Over reliance on networked systems that can be degraded, command and control that can be disrupted, and a shaky fires scheme will see us lose.

Learn from history.  Learn from the battle of the Chosin Reservoir.
