The Air Land Battle and Desert Storm

Scout Warrior screwed the title of their article up- I corrected it.

Anyway, yes, Desert Strom was combat on our terms. We dominated the Iraqis completely. They learned their lesson and shifted to irregular warfare when we came back in 2003.

The Air War lasted 6 weeks to clear the way for a successful 100-hour ground invasion and brought new technology to air attacks?

As laser-guided bombs incinerated Iraqi tanks from the sky, surveillance aircraft monitored enemy troop movements and stealth bombers eluded radar tracking from air defenses in the opening days of Operation Desert Strom decades ago – very few of those involved were likely considering how their attacks signified a new era in modern warfare.

Earlier this year, when veterans, historians and analysts commemorated the 25th anniversary of the first Gulf War in the early 90s, many regard the military effort as a substantial turning point in the trajectory or evolution of modern warfare.

Operation Desert Storm involved the combat debut of stealth technology, GPS for navigation, missile warning systems, more advanced surveillance plane radar, and large amounts of precision-focused laser-guided bombs, Maj. Gen. Paul Johnson, Director of Requirements for the Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategic Plans and Requirements, told Scout Warrior in a special interview earlier this year.   
“We saw the first glimpses in Desert Storm of what would become the transformation of air power,” he said.

Yup, we kicked their bums!! The flies conquered the flypaper. We didn't have the staying power. When the colored kid was given on the job training as the President of The United States he decided, yes he decided or someone did it for him, to drop the action in Iraq and start a war or two of his own.


There were Christians, lots of them in the mid east, left in the lurch, and they were left to be chopped up. Turkey is a sack of assholes and we seem to look at them as a good friend, that hasn't yet changed.

We never intended to stay after Desert Storm. It had the limited objective of liberating Kuwait.
