We are COMING...BTTT!
Guys, don't get too hyped up by this. There is literally nothing new (and nothing SH hasn't already witnessed) in it.
Two Army divisions = the 82nd and 101st. That's exactly what we did pre-DS/DS. A corps following in weeks. Well, yes, a whole lotta weeks!
The plain fact of the matter is, heavy divisions take time to move because the US is and has been for some time, unwilling to procure and maintain the sea and air lift assets required to shorten it. I guarantee you the tanks and bradleys haven't gotten any lighter nor their logistical tails. Far from increasing our lift capabilities since 90/91, they have decreased.
Iraq won't see much they haven't already seen, it'll just be slower.
