The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joe DUNFORD, appeared before the National Press Club yesterday (Monday, June 19 2017) and YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO HIS COMPLETE COMMENTS — you’ll be smarter, trust me.
The Chairman talks Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, SU-22’s being shot down, Russia, Turkey, Iran, North Korea, the Defense Budget and strategies in each of these regions as well as his vision of how American involvement contributes to success. What you’ll get is complete answers to difficult questions, not sound bites.
Well done by the National Press Club!
