Now that the war in the Arabian Gulf has been terminated, all of our Services are quite properly examining our recent operations there in some detail to ascertain how we might have done them better. This is as it should be since there is no better opportunity than actual combat to measure the effectiveness of our people, equipment and tactics. To ignore this opportunity to learn from our mistakes would be the height of folly.
