I Might Be Air Force... « GWOT »

...but the good General is wrong.

We need all the services, and we need all the services doing what we're doing. You can't win the support of Sheikhs from 25k feet. And who, exactly, will be down there on the ground clearing out all the MANPADS systems, hmm? I'll give you a hint: Army and Marines. So you might as well let them do the rest of the job.

Yes, the USAF does a great job safely killing targets you can fix and locate. They don't do so well with insurgencies and terrorists.
