Perhaps they consider themselves nuclear weapons, but they are in fact soldiers. Perhaps highly specialized soldiers, but soldiers all the same, who could have used 'tour' type rotations on the Blightborder to gain experience.

I always felt the lack of Aes Sedai presence in the world was how Jordan wanted the story to progress, to give room for the rise of the young hero's, and using the needs of the Pattern and the machinations of the Black Ajah/Shadow to achieve that setting.

It's too bad, really. I would have enjoyed seeing even a glimpse of the world with Aes Sedai an active presence, in their relative roles (there are threads in the archive about it, with each Ajah having a useful and practical job).
