Nothing better than listening to smart people in long format… so we’ll listen to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s testimony to the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Sub-Committee on Defense, given on May 8th, 2019.  General Dunford made news for his comments about a longer term presence in Afghanistan, but he provides the most revealing information yet on the actions behind the movement of two US Navy Carrier Battle Groups into the Persian Gulf & a B52 “task force” into the region.

The Chairman speaks addresses Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, US Nuclear Forces & Mental health in his testimony.  ALWAYS interesting.
