Gates outlines Army transformation goals

Link
Quote:
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Army of the future will need to concentrate more on training foreign militaries, mastering other languages and customs, and honing its ability to fight smaller forces of insurgents, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Wednesday.

In broad strokes, Gates laid out a vision for transforming the Army to a force better able to fight the type of unconventional warfare it has seen in Iraq and Afghanistan, which he said will "remain the mainstay of the contemporary battlefield for some time."
Hmmm. Forgive me if I miss the mark here, but isn't this the same thing that Clinton was trying to establish (smaller, quick strike forces that relied on technological superiority and urban warfare training rather than large, standing armies)?

I am glad to see that Gates doesn't appear to be a subscriber to the Wolfowitz Doctrine.
