Abstract:

We intend to get to trouble spots faster than our adversaries can complicate the crisis, encourage de-escalation through our formidable presence, and if deterrence fail prosecute war with an intensity that wins at least cost to us and our allies and sends clear messages to all who threaten America. General Eric Shinseki, USA Chief of Staff. I am on record saying that I think the days of great armies clashing with great armies in huge land battles is over. If US. ground troops are to engage an enemy, it likely will be an enemy that has been demoralized, defatted, and denuded by air forces first. If aerospace power doesnt achieve strategic control by itself it certainly leverages hugely, the use of other forces. General Michael E. Ryan, USAF Chief of Staff The United States Air Force has always been expeditionary. We are going back to our roots. EAF is a mindset that prepares its to respond rapidly anywhere in the world. General Michael E. Ryan, USAF Chief of Staff.
