    Using the military for never ending pissant police operations erodes the capability to prosecute major combat operations.  

    •  Military "Police operations" ARE combat (0+ / 0-)

      operations. The police modifier refers to the status with regard to international law or policy and not to military activity. If it did, then we would be sending MPs instead of bombers.

      We can debate whether or not the military, men and materiel, are being maintained appropriately for this style of perpetual conflict, but the concept itself doesn't necessarily lead to that result.
