It is also essential to have some foreign bases where the logistics support needed to sustain combat operations can be prepositioned since we don't have enough airlift to get it there when we actually deploy the combat forces. A squadron of fighters can be in the combat zone in days - the weapons (bombs ammo) need to be forward positioned in response to a contingency plan - not the deployment order itself. I have done this for a living.
