Default US tactics makes us more vulnerable next time

From the Task and Purpose website and the actual title is: 'How Tactics Used In Iraq And Afghanistan Can Make The US More Vulnerable In Future Wars' by Anna Simmons, a NPS academic, given at Special Operations Medical Association Scientific Assembly.

Her four key points:
Quote:
1. More technological innovation is not always a better means of warfare.
2. We are now hostage to the idea of the Golden Hour.
3. We can only maintain air dominance in so many places.
4. We have labelled our service members the victims of these wars.
Interesting to note the last point refers to post-conflict mental health issues.
