The answer is the two-force solution. End the procurement holiday. Give the Air Force the Raptors that they need and the Navy their 330 fighting ships. Let the Navy and Air Force rediscover their Cold War roots as the powerful strategic aegis against the Russian Bear and Chinese Dragon, while the Army and Marines fight the skirmishes across the globe. Winning a war is only half of the Armed Forces’ mission, the other half is preventing one.

Of course, two forces (one COIN and one “Shock and Awe”) is an old idea. Still, very good that even traditional supporters of Cold War sized force are realizing that you can’t fight COIN as a “lesser included” of traditional war.
