ABSTRACT
The author discusses U.S. military strategy. According to the author, the U.S. should engage in fewer conflicts but should commit more forces to ensure the desired outcomes. It is suggested that U.S. policy focus should remain on preventing and, if necessary, engaging in wars with great powers rather than on attempting to control the politics of smaller, conflict-prone countries. Details on U.S. strategy in the Gulf War and in 21st-century conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya are presented. Other topics include counterinsurgency, the use of airpower, democratization, and potential U.S. conflicts with North Korea.
