Are we too Cyber/Computer dependent when it comes to mobilizing forces for major combat deployments?

Just how does the US. Military and its allies (if any) project real military power for a land war against peer/near peer forces in Asia?

Are the Chinese beatable?

Interesting article and throws up some points for commanders to consider. That said from experience commanders want all their info digitally and heavily relay on spreadsheets and stats. Do commanders in the future need to re-think how they go about business of warr?

The days of permissive strategic deployments — like the 2003 Iraq invasion — are gone, he said
Which needs to be considered in re Bolton's recent noise about deploying 120k troops to deal with Iran.
Uh, that doesn't happen overnight, John-boy.
The point in the article about the South China Sea being China's back yard is easily folded into the Jominian "interior lines/exterior lines" model ... that's not even new thinking.

A fellow named Sun Tzu might be worth listening to when dealing with the Chinese.
