    If that's the case, then what would you call a blockage caused by planes?
    A crash.

    It didn't win the war. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.

    It prevented the invasion (though that itself is a debatable fact), but that is not the same thing.

    True, but then ultimately the war against Japan was won by using nuclear bombers to force surrender. So in that sense, an air force could win a war alone. But I agree with your main point, that conventional wars require more than just air power to be winning.

    Technically, that was the US Army...

    And even in the days with the threat of all out nuclear war, the weapons got taken away from aircraft as they're too vulnerable.
