Abolish the Air Force What it does on its own -- strategic bombing -- isn't suited to modern warfare. What it does well -- its tactical support missions -- could be better managed by the Army and Navy. It's time to break up the Air Force. http://www.prospect.org/cs/articles?article=abolish_the_air_force Presents a good case. Do we need a stand alone Air Force anymore than we need a stand alone armored force, or artillery force, etc. Maybe the AF should be to the Army as the USMC is to the Navy? Maybe it is time for the AF to go home, back to the Army?
