One of the reasons recent conflicts have been swiftly resolved and
resulted in few deaths of United States service members is because of
the "overkill" capabilities of our forces. I fail to see how meeting
enemy armor on a more equal footing is desirable. It increases the
chance of an enemy tank's survival, increasing the chance of that enemy
tank killing our soldiers.
There are no environmental benefits resulting from armed conflicts. The toxic chemicals required to fight a battle are numerous. Explosives, propellants, engine coolants, engine lubricants, and fuels released during a battle all pose potential long-term environmental threats. The best way to limit this environmental damage is to maintain our ability to swiftly resolve armed conflicts.
Thanks, Brett Wood
