At the Democratic debate Bernie Sanders sort of ran rings around Hillary on a few points. He is the only candidate pointing out that our military budget is higher than the next six national military budgets of other nations. Bernie made an important point– The task right now is to rethink how military funds are spent. The task is to create a new military force trained to fight insurgents rather than a military force trained to fight a traditional war with tanks and planes and nuclear weapons. We need an army which has small well trained special forces who are skilled in working against small groups of militants. Planes support such action, but planes are not going to engage in dog fights in the sky.
1. So, what type of air force is needed for future war?
2. What type of ground forces are need for such wars”
3. What type of weapons are needed for such wars?
4. How do we train our generals, how do we train our officers, and how do we train our soldiers?
Perhaps, fewer bucks but well aimed bucks will result in lower military expenditures??
