On artillery in Iraq

A post worth reading, here. Lang is right that the picking off of isolated infantry detachments as is happening now in Iraq can be a signifier of inadequate fire support. It's hard to tell how much of this has to do with the Rumsfeld reforms, but I don't have much doubt that the number of tubes in theatre is somewhere below pre-war doctrine.
