Unfortunetly, the Military stance, is to always water down an issue, if it can save face, and keep it out of the presses. You know the old saying, If you polish a turd it's still a turd. The military definition is, as long as it looks good on the outside, no one will ever know the true nature of what is in the inside. And that's the way it's been since George Washington started and established his own military. The world can not see that our military is weak in any way.
Sick and tired of being Sick and tired.
