Feets, do yo' stuff

Bloomberg News reports that the Army is planning to shrink by 12 brigades, about 4 divisions.

Invasions by state armies are almost unheard of any more.

Anything our army is asked to do will be more in the nature of a police action. Preferably, we would just support the national police of a functioning state under stress, but that isn't the kind of place we go.

If you are policing, you need feet on the beat. Therefore, more infantry, not less.

Did we learn nothing in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Yes, we learned nothing.
