Air power, and armor, shorten the war. If it were entirely infantrymen fighting…

Nuclear weapons have the potential to end the war, remotely -- God save us from ourselves… The nuclear winter would likely kill 90% of the "victor's" population, so it would be a pyrrhic victory, at best.

Launch enough surgically precise drones, and you might be able to solicit surrender prior to sending in the skinny 19-year-old Infantryman, to stand atop the hill, with a rifle.

The poll seems too simplistic, to me. I voted, "Other".
Cheers!

POLL DESCRIPTION
Historian Roger J. Spiller once wrote:
The war on the ground was predominantly the infantryman's war. Despite notable advances in the equipment and techniques of armored warfare, this war belonged to the GI.
Do you agree?
