|Does anybody else think that it's strange that we are using an airmobile force to secure Kandahar?
The media is reporting it as a "natural transition" from the Marines to the Army. However, it would seem more "natural" to use Reg. Infantry, not elite airmobile forces.
Obviously, they are better trained. Maybe they would be less likely to do "stupid things."
Or, maybe, it makes sense to put an airmobile force in the middle of the region. For an operation in another state? It would obviously give something for Iran to think about.
