How Many Flying Hours Does It Take To Kill a Terrorist?

In this op-ed, published in Defense One, I take on critics of my report, Rethinking Readiness.  The main point I make is the way the military measures readiness is inadequate.  Instead focusing only on the inputs to readiness, like flying hours, the military should also be reporting outputs, like average bomb miss distances.
