Steven Den Beste's USS Clueless today posts a very cogent analysis of the results of the US and British campaign for the liberation of the Iraqi people. Among other things, he points up the emergent trend in the US Military to adapt to the environment rather than being straightjacketed into military doctrines which, at their worst, can result in the creation of force structures solely dependent on guidance from the nether reaches of command (say. like the Iraqi "army" or the old Soviet-style forces). If you have any interest at all in military theory or practice, I recommend this piece.
