ABSTRACT
The article discusses the future strategic challenges faced by the U.S. Army in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the author, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan will continue for some years. However, U.S. Department of Defense Secretary Robert Gates aims to finish the wars rather than to concentrate on the future wars. Moreover, the strategic vision of Gates may last beyond his tenure, while the opportunity of carrying this out will fall on the Army.
