Marcus Aurelius

COL Killebrew is generally a pretty smart guy.  Here he makes three points I agree with:

a.  The fiscal crisis is largely self-imposed;
b.  Ground forces are going to be disproportionately screwed;
c.  At least in the near term, “by, with, and through” rather than US unilateral is the option of choice;

and one that I don’t:

d.  US has the resources, expertise, and will to make the right choices.  Don’t agree with that, particularly regarding expertise and will.
