Proving Technology

The US is on a path of transforming the military. In order to do so, it needs to prove the alternate technology. The main thing to note is that if you're not trying to ram a particular ideology down the throats of people, you don't need to be able to do a war of conquest. You just need to do a war of liberation. So here is what has been proven so far and what remains to be proven:

Afghanistan - if there is a civil war, it is possible to merely provide air support to the weaker side and have them romp to victory.

Iraq - it is possible to use a light force to defeat the fielded forces and then allow the recruiting of a new security force.

Syria - it is possible to defeat the fielded forces and then REUSE the old military - just make them swear allegiance to new leaders.

Iran - it is possible to call on defections from the military plus get the people to rise up at a particular date and time such that air support plus special forces are the only force that is required.

If we can prove all this technology we will be well on the way to creating the military of the future.
