A Conversation with General William B. Caldwell IV
As the United States prepares to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, please join General Caldwell for a conversation on U.S. and NATO investment in the Afghan National Security Forces as well as the importance and challenges of the upcoming transition.
Matthew Waxman writes, "the result of shifting control to the Pentagon will likely be a more sustainable, if perhaps more restrained and formalized, long-term policy of targeted killing."
Conventional wisdom holds that the U.S. Army will bear the brunt of forthcoming defense cuts. But that need not be the case, provided it shifts its focus away from traditional ground forces toward more relevant weapons: land-base missile systems.
