http://www.myfoxdc.com/story/23775932/army-chief-just-2-brigades-combat-ready Truth or Politics? Am I the only person having hard time with this statement? Several questions - definition of "combat-ready." - can he do anything else to mitigate it? I am sure when General Odierno was a commander and if one of his subordinate commanders told him that his unit is not combat ready because not enough time to train (of course this would have been a career suicide) how would General Odierno have replied. I don't think he would have said okay. - what is the CJCS's position?
