Strategy Page has a good article up on how the attack on Iraq is likely to go. It doesn't flesh out all the details but it does highlight the importance of information warfare, the likelihood that much of the Iraqi Army may decide to switch sides rather than be killed, and the importance of pursuing a very rapid pace of attack.
This "point and click" bombing is one reason it's believed the Iraqi Army, and most of the Republican Guard, can be convinced to sit this one out. Dying for the cause is one thing, but dying without any chance to fight back is something else again.
