I came across the link below, which is a report to the US Congress from a retired Colonel. Clearly some are starting to look at the current trends towards lighter forces, network enabled warfare and pointing out the flaws. As FRES is the same idea it is clearly relevant to us. http://www.sftt.org/PDF/article08172004a.pdf Some good quotes: "I will begin by examining two of the fundamental assumptions that are distorting Army transformation. The first of these distortions arises from the belief that information can substitute for armored protection, firepower and off-road mobility." "As experience in Iraq demonstrates, another flawed assumption is the belief that strategic speed (deployment) is worth sacrificing protection and firepower."
