Modern warfare
From MoveOn

Or again, how effective in the long run in guerrilla/4GW? Like Vietnam: we win all the battles but lose the war. And of course, why the hell are we fighting? Get out. Go home.

Again, after WWII the newly independent Air Force thought it was king, that nukes and missiles made the Army, Navy and Marines obsolete. Since understandably most people don’t want to blow up the world, that’s not what USAF ended up doing: exactly what conservative generals in the ’20s and ’30s thought, close air support for the ground forces.
