Podcast: What Is Coronavirus Doing to the US Military

Hasn't prevented Pompeo and Esper pushing for war

Will Porter returns to Foreign Policy Focus to discuss how the US military is being impacted by the coronavirus.

Will explains that several DoD personnel have now tested positive and many soldiers are in quarantine.

The Pentagon has scaled back some games, although others have been able to continue.

The close quarters’ soldiers live in – especially on ships – makes it likely the coronavirus will spread quickly.

However, this has not prevented hawks in the Trump administration from pushing war with Iran.
