The date is 15 Jan 91. The location is the tank in the Pentagon. General Carl Von Clausewitz, brought out of retirement, is one of several prominent military thinkers invited by CJCS and CSAF to discuss coalition air campaign options anticipated to begin soon against Iraq. General Clausewitz has received briefings designed to bring him up to speed on air power history, capabilities, technology and doctrine. We now join General Clausewitz during the conclusion of the final briefing presented to him that laid out the air option plan for Desert Storm known as "Instant Thunder."
