Professor Farley of the University of Kentucky believes most of what the Air Force does is in support of the Army and the Navy and thus should be phased out. Dr. Auslin refutes Prfessor Farley's argument as an old one that made sense in the 1940s when establishing an Air Force first entered political debate. Since that time, the work of the Air Force has moved far beyond what was origninally envisioned for it. Today the Air Force is an indispensable part of joint task force missions, which predominate how the militay wages war and upholds U.S. national security. A separate Air Force is necessary to think about air power as a separate manner of waging war and how to dominate the space above the sea and battlefield.
