Further behind in terms of state of readiness. Many areas have been underfunded over the last 8 years.
We have a severe shortage of repair and replacement parts, equipment readiness, training. Our CEW structure and capabilities are in urgent need of investment and upgrade. Much more.
We can't take being the dominant military force in the world for granted, it can and will go away if we don't keep it up. There are adversaries working very hard to catch up to our tech through innovation and theft. The only way to stay ahead is to constantly invest in R&D and next gen equipment and concepts.
If you take a year or two off you can't just turn the switch back on and catch up any time soon.

We don't judge our military by the rest of the world's standards, we judge it against our own.
