ABSTRACT
Not long ago, the U.S. military was in terrible shape. During the 2000 presidential campaign, George W. Bush stood behind Republican claims that U.S. President Bill Clinton administration had allowed military readiness to decline to all-time lows. Condoleezza Rice attacked nearly every aspect of Clinton's stewardship of the military. The military services and field commanders need time also they cannot instantly shift strategies and deployments, nor does new doctrine flow rapidly. The war in Iraq is wrecking the Army and the Marine Corps.
