Military Services Report Low Readiness Levels as Russia, China Demand Increased Commitments

Audit: Pentagon does not have a comprehensive plan to rebuild readiness amid force, budget reductions

The U.S. military has reported persistently low readiness levels as threats from Russia and China have demanded increased American presence in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, according to a government watchdog.

The Pentagon lacks a comprehensive plan to rebuild readiness across the force as manpower and spending cuts have threatened the armed services’ preparedness for commitments abroad, concluded a Government Accountability Office report publicly issued on Wednesday.

The military services expect low levels of readiness to persist into the next decade, according to interviews conducted by auditors.

Russia and China are not threats to the American people.
They resist our Masters' plans for their lives.
They do not like central bankers.
