Abstract : The United States has the best led, trained and equipped military force in the world today. Since World War II, fielding technologically superior forces has been the cornerstone of our national military strategy. This advantage has allowed our forces to deter, and when deterrence failed, prevail over numerically large enemy forces. Our predecessors invested wisely in technology in the 1960s and 1970s. The result was an overwhelming, swift, decisive victory in Desert Storm and a continuing deterrence of our potential adversaries.
