Agreed: A light force "tripwire" in place now is of much greater value in deterrence than is the option of a heavy force coming in later (or not, depending on whether it is a "red line"...). Unfortunately, that light force is not going to win, well, pretty much anything, in that theater.

If you look at where the heavy forces are currently arrayed in Operation Atlantic Resolve, they are relatively close, but piecemealed such that sustainment becomes a huge issue.
