Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

The 27th Combat Engineering Battalion is building an airport, the largest in Afghanistan, in a remote place, in just a few days. "So, how do you build an airbase in the middle of nowhere, where there is little more than a goat track to connect it to the outside world?

Again, simple for the US military. You parachute in all the construction equipment from planes.

’This is going to be one of the largest heavy drops since World War II’, said one officer, sounding very excited as we waited for the aircraft to arrive.

There is no doubt though that this was a display of military might that probably no other nation could match."
