NUR FÜR AFP-ABONNENTEN (NO RESALE) ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, USA 25. MAI 2023 QUELLE: US DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE 1. O-TON 1 - Mark Milley, United States Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (Mann, English, 30 Sek.): "I think there is no doubt whatsoever that there would be a very significant negative impact on the readiness, morale, and capabilities of the United States military if we defaulted and did not reach a debt ceiling thing, as well as reputational damage internationally and so on. I think I wouldn't characterize it— I wouldn't use words you know that say catastrophic or none. I am not an economist, but I think it will be very very significant without a doubt and would have absolutely clear unambiguous implications on national security. "
