Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
for at least the last hundred and fifty years, the military of almost every nation has been planning to refight the last major war that it fought, The US navy is configured to fight a modern equivalent of the Japanese Navy, whereas European navies are mainly configured to fight Nazi Submarine fleets. The Coalition in Iraq, would be doing much better if the enemy fought like the Germans in WWII,

The fact that other countries have fought differently in conflicts since hasnt altered strategy because they havent been "serious" opponents

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
