Why Do We Need the Airforce?
Many people fail to realize that many of our air operations are executed by the Navy (anything on a carrier, for example). Supporters of the air force used the concept of strategic bombing (destroying cities and killing civilians) to argue for the power of the third branch. However, does strategic bombing actually work? In Dresden half a million civilians died, but Germany made no move to surrender.

War industry corporations wouldn't like it though.

@curtis well, what happens if our ships and carriers go out of commission or are half way around the world? Air Force has its place

@teamwaffles I'd be surprised if our 12 carrier groups were ever out of commission!
