Since WWII our military doctrine has been “we control the air over the battlefield.”
And we have.
The only reason we did what we did in Iraq and Afghanistan was because we controlled the skies. We could bring in air support, air resupply, and air evacuation on demand.
The only threat to our aircraft was at low altitude from ground-to-air weapons. We didn’t have to dog fight Taliban to clear the skies before sending in AC-130s to pound one of their positions.
Well, those days are gone.
We have given up air combat superiority for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Chinese Air Force does not vote on pride flag colored logos.
Which do you think will be more victorious in combat?
