Let me clearly state up front that this is not another of ComNavOps’ famous and much beloved humor pieces. As I’ve said repeatedly, I can’t make up stuff as funny and ludicrous as what the Pentagon routinely comes up with in their “reality”. That said, you’re going to love this one.
After years of debating what the AirSea Battle concept is and how it might be implemented, the Pentagon has finally made a major advance. They’ve announced that they’re changing the name from,
Joint Concept for Access and Maneuver in the Global Commons (JAM-GC).
As I said, this is real and is being widely reported across the Internet. Check it for yourself.
Seriously, this is what passes for military thought today – changing the name. I wonder how many man-hours went into this major development? Based on the increase in the number of letters in the title, this new version is just over four times better than the previous one. I guess I have to grudgingly acknowledge that a 4x improvement is pretty significant by anyone’s standard. I, therefore, salute the Pentagon and say, “Well done!”.
No word, yet, on Chinese reaction to this development but they are undoubtedly already at work developing a new wave of ships, aircraft, and tanks to counter this major advance by the Pentagon.
