Us vs Iraq and Their Military Options Weapons



A)DESERT STORM LIGHT - We would use 250,000 troops to invade Iraq. It is very unlikely that Sadam Hussein would give US Forces an easy time in the 3 months that it would take to muster up enough troops. In addition, it would be hard for US allied forces to hold steady during the time of the attack.

B)SPECIAL FORCES - Several hundred Special Forces would work together with Iraqi opposition forces and defectors and back up air strikes.

C)MIDDLE GROUND - An air power with more than 50,000 ground troops could be built up in about two weeks. This number also includes 25,000 light-infantry troops, who can be dropped by air. All troops attacking Iraq would be backed up by as much airpower as the military could get, launched from bases in the region.

I think that the best option for the U.S. to take is the Middle Ground option. There are two reasons for this. First of all, the large number of soldiers and troops would definitely over-whelm Iraq's fighters. Over 100,000 extremely well trained troops verses less than 380,000 regular Iraqi fighters easily gives the U.S. an advantage. Secondly, the extreme number of airforces teamed-up with the huge number of U.S. troops packs a mega punch that can blow away the Iraqi army without a problem.

I think that the US's weapons are more technologically advanced for two reasons. First, the US has more money, so it can make better weapons and do more research about making the weapons better. Secondly, the US is one of the most advanced...
