The next war will be all drones. No need for ground troops. The front lines will be 10,000 feet in the air. The only casualities will be the occassional drone shot down.
If you truly believe this, I have some oceanfront property near Amarillo, Texas that I will sell you for a STEAL!
It was only a few short years ago that our President, George W. at the time, stated that we would us the air power with shock and awe to rattle loose the grip on the Iraqi people and that we would then basically walk into Baghdad without much of a fight. How did that workout for us?
To win wars, you MUST have front line men on the ground securing and maintaining the land and the people - otherwise, those who are assaulted by our drones inadvertently will be as opposed to us and our ideas as those we were actually shooting at!
The next World War won't be nuclear, it will be block to block, street to street and house to house - ask those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan! We cannot simply bomb our way to victory! It takes boots on the ground to quell the resurrection and to supply and support the survivors; again failure to do this will result in MORE hatred, not less (see Obama policy for proof positive of my statements)!!

Generals are always fighting the last war. The “drone war” is what we have now. It’s clean, surgical and only the “enemy” gets killed.
If you look at new weapons system aquisitions a lot is for unmanned aircraft. My buddy sent me a pic today about the unmanned resupply helicopter.
House to house, nah. Keep a drone overhead 24/7. They have to come out to get supplies then you can pick them off.
Massive tank battles, with who? Storming beaches, hadn’t happened since Korea.
Lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan, forgotten already.
