I agree that they're not "good" on guerilla/urban/CT stuff. Like you said, nobody can really win without being bad themselves.

But how can you say they're still good on conventional warfare? They certainly used to be, but recently (i.e. post-Vietnam) I can't say they've ever been tested against an organized and relatively modern military. Iraq? The Taliban in Afghanistan?

The closest they came were in Serbia. They didn't do too well there; rather preferred bombing mostly from Italian bases. They simply would not dare ground operations against such an organized and recently-tested (wars with Croatia) military.

I'm not saying they aren't. I'm just saying they won't do conventional warfare anymore...

The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom.
