Who Should One Believe?

There seems to be both and external and internal debate on what the Army needs?  It was recently highlighted in Politico.  While I believe there is much truth to the argument; when I hear a retired Air Force General who is unabashed champion of Air Power argued the Army needs to be cut I must wonder if he is not being parochial.  When retired Army Officers say it I pay attention, even when it is Doug MacGregor.

One Response to Who Should One Believe?

    The tell: “The Army is looking for a purpose, and a bigger chunk of the budget.” The Army’s purpose is quite clear, per repetitive authorizations by Congress. One has to be terminally stupid – not to be confused with confused, developmentally delayed or a congenital idiot, but terminally stupid – to believe the Army has no purpose. Given the recent awesome victory over ISIS without a single pair of boots on the ground, the fielding of the F-35, the aircraft that costs as much as an aircraft carrier and several corps of soldiers, and the Navy’s overwhelming dominance of… the football field(?) the best solution for that ‘senior Pentagon officer’ is a tour of duty on the front in the Ukraine. Without a vest. But he’s since he’s a kindred spirit with the Russians he’ll likely get a Hero of Soviet Labor lapel pin.
