Army General Martin Dempsey testifying Tuesday.

“None of us walk away or run away from a crisis or a fight. You know that's not our nature. But I will tell you, personally, if ever the force is so degraded and so unready and then we're asked to use it, it would be immoral.”
— Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, testifying Tuesday on the impact pending military budget cuts would have. Hard to believe it was only six years ago that a prior chairman, Marine General Peter Pace, found himself in hot water for using the same word. He said he believed that “homosexual acts between individuals are immoral, and that we should not condone immoral acts.”

Using the force when it IS ready can also be immoral.
