Fair enough to separate the two phases, but I have some big promlems with your contention.
1. Real time Int was not coming down to the Battle Groups on the ground in time for them to make timely and accurate decisions - to break the enemys OODA loop (to use the staff jargon).
2. Iraqi units were not constantly retreating (they had neither the fuel, nor the option of manouvre with Allied air superiority). They were either destroyed in-situ or simply took off their uniforms and melted away into the civilian population.
3. There is nothing revolutionary about the concept of flank guards (either with or without 'cavalry' units. They were always a part of Soviet doctrine and are nothing new in Western doctrine, both the Western Allies and the Germans used them in North Africa and elsewhere in WWII. Our use of them was patchy at best, as can be seen in the casualty figures in A2 Echelon formations (Pte Lynch's unit being a prime example).
4. Conventional C3I structures were generally destroyed in the early stages, but the Ba'athists had learned well from the Serbs and used civilian radio and TV and especially mobile phone networks as C3 assets.
It was a much better example of Guderian's concept of Blitzkrieg.
Oh, and by the way, you may not have noticed while watching Fox, but the British, Australains and Poles were there too
