How long would we last if we went into battle today and at least with what I propose, you have some slack to give to your allies.So you intend to expend the regular force in one 72 hour battle at one place while you will leave the reserves to continue the war on the beaches, on the landing grounds, in the cities and in the hills.
The more I see of the situation in Ukraine the less I think the CAF is mentally equipped to fight a war. Wars are more than just battles. The Cold War left the impression that there would be no more Wars. The A-Bomb did what the Maxim Gun was supposed to have done in WWI. If war were to break out it would be a "One and Done" affair. 72 hours and everybody is dead or goes home.
Ukraine continues the trend of Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Eritrea..... We, the West, go in ready to fight battles. The locals stand back, lean on the ropes and let us take the round. They come back. This time we are doing the "right" thing. We are backing the locals.
We are not backing "change".
