Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Adam Lowther (Air Force Research InstituteThe National Interest)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Adam debate the need for an independent air force. Adam argues that the US Air Force provides an integrated vision of military airpower that the other services can’t offer. Rob, on the other hand, isn’t impressed by the USAF’s performance. Would bombers exist without an independent air force? What lessons can we learn from the wars in Iraq? What is the Air Force’s most under-appreciated service? Rob and Adam close by discussing the prospects for using airpower in Ukraine.
