Good heretical stuff from Adm. Stavridis

Good heretical stuff from Adm. Stavridis

 

I am glad to see someone of his stature putting these ideas out there:

 Create a cyber force.

 Give each combatant command, or COCOM, a civilian deputy 

 Merge the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) and SOUTHCOM into a single Americas Command 

 Establish a Land and Air Guard that parallels the Coast Guard

 Stand up a truly independent general staff with operational authority atop the military chain of command
