National Military Strategic Plan for the War on Terrorism

Voice of the Taciturn, a great blog I discovered via Michael Ledeen at the Corner, writes on the fruits of the serious strategic planning for the war on terror that has been done the past 18 months at the Pentagon. As you'll read, Special Ops Command is taking the lead in directing the war on terror. The military is transforming. More jointness among the branches and more creative planning. It's just a reaction to the new kind of world we live in.

The idea of the big, two-power war (read: U.S.-China in the Taiwan Strait) is headed out the window. I mentioned this a few weeks ago. Granted, some of the old elements remain, such as strategic defense, but, really, the conventional-style, two-power war died when the Soviet Union died.
