The State of America’s Global Military Readiness featuring General Wesley Clark

The North Koreans may soon have an intercontinental missile capable of delivering a warhead on the US. The Chinese are vying for control of the South China Sea. Russia threatens NATO’s Eastern European countries. One of America’s foremost military strategist will reflect on the state of America’s global military preparedness.

General Wesley Clark (US Army Ret.) served 38 years and retired as a four-star general. In his last assignment as Supreme Allied Commander Europe, he led NATO forces to victory in Operation Allied Force, a 78-day air campaign, backed by ground invasion planning and a diplomatic process, saving 1.5 million Albanians from ethnic cleansing.

General Clark was the principal author of both the US National Military Strategy and Joint Vision 2010, prescribing US warfighting for full-spectrum dominance.

He is now an officer or director of many corporate and non-profit organizations, especially in the energy, finance and security industries, and international affairs.
