Interesting article though. If only you could make an entire army out of special forces and not grunts...

Doh (which is to say 'annoyed grunt'), link hereby changed.

I don't think it's a matter of having special forces in charge so much as having a fully thought out plan for post-invasion governance and competent people in place ready to carry them out.
