Plan: The United States Federal Government should substantially increase funding for the Departmentof Defense for the development of photovoltaic technologies for military application.Contention 1: HegemonyA.ReadinessMilitary readiness is at an all time low

Army
andMarine Corps leaders
said yesterday that the increase of more than 30,000 troops
hasput unsustainable levels of stress on U.S. ground forces and has put their readiness to fight other conflicts at the lowest level inyears.
In a stark assessment a week before Gen. David H. Petraeus,the top U.S. commander in Iraq, is to testify on the war's  progress,Gen. Richard A. Cody,the
Army's vice chief of staff, said
that the
heavy deployments are inflicting "incredible stress"on soldiers and families and that they pose "a significant risk" to the nation's all-volunteer military.
"When the five-brigadesurge went in . . . that took all the stroke out of the shock absorbers for theUnited States Army," Cody testified before theSenate Armed Services Committee's readiness panel. He said that even if five brigades are pulled out of Iraq by July, as planned, it wouldtake some time before the Army could return to 12-month tours for soldiers. Petraeus is expected to call for a pause in further troopreductions to assess their impact on security in Iraq. "
I've
 
never seen our lack of strategic depth be where it is today," said Cody,who has been the senior Army official in charge of operations and readiness for the past six years
and plans to retire thissummer.
A military fueled by oil is unsustainable – use of alternatives is key

WASHINGTON --
A new study
ordered by the Pentagon
warns that the rising cost and dwindling supply of oil -- the lifeblood of fighter jets, warships, and tanks -- will make the US military's ability to respond to hot spots around the world "unsustainablein the long term."
The study, produced by a defense consulting firm, concludes that all four branches of 
the military must"fundamentally transform" their assumptions about energy, including taking immediate steps toward
fielding weaponssystems and aircraft that run on
alternative and renewable fuels. It is "imperative" that the Department of Defense "apply newenergy technologies that address alternative supply sources and efficient consumption across all aspects of militaryoperations,"
according to the report, which was provided to the Globe.3
