From the article:
Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told lawmakers Tuesday that the United States military currently is not prepared or capable across all the service branches of addressing the threats facing the country.
This article emphasizes the question of readiness. Gen Dunford says we are not ready. In addition to readiness, we have had downsizing during this administration. So, not only are we smaller, but the smaller part is less ready. Yeah that will work!!
