A GAO (Government Accountability Office) report that measured readiness of 49 military aircraft from 2011 through 2021, found that only four (8%) met their annual mission capable goal. 26 aircraft did not meet their annual mission capable goal for any year in the ten year monitoring period.

Analyst Comment: Military readiness is degrading at a rapid rate. The elite class is going to learn the hard way you cannot continue to push around nations like Russia and China while destroying US military capability. This is setting the US up for a major loss in the future. Those that believe we have to maintain a federal government to maintain our ability to fight China, need to re-evaluate their position. The federal government is destroying the ability of the nation to respond to major threats.
