Libya's Impact on Future War Strategy

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Rebel forces are inching closer to full control of Libya's government and ousting Col. Moammar Gadhafi from power. Their success was aided by NATO's constant airstrikes on Tripoli, and that combination has proven to be successful thus far. Could this become a fighting model for future battles?

Gideon Rose, editor of Foreign Affairs magazine and the author of "How Wars End: Why We Always Fight the Last Battle," talks about whether this truly is a new way of war that is easier, cheaper, and less bloody.
