There are many things in this world that will never change, but it is becoming more obvious at each passing day and with each pundit's grave review of the effects of the American military campaign in Iraq, that some things have changed. Shock and Awe, the over-used hyperbole used to describe a miltary strategy never truly implemented, can be better employed to describe the world's reaction to the swift, efficent, devestating power of the combined might of the coalition forces. Every military organization on this earth is now tearing through footage and analysis of this war and re-evaluating their own capabilities and readiness. The balanced usage of both high-tech and low-tech, in concert and in the appropriate proportions, has been brilliantly executed. When a GPS guided block of concrete is used, with devestating effectiveness, to counter high priced, dug in, heavy armor and artillery, it is time for a re-think. I realize that this is not really new, as noted here, but the overall vision that it represents, of applying only the force necessary to achieve the desired objective, does signal a near complete abandonment of the cold war military doctrines of both the East and the West.
