BlackFive: The Iranian military is teh bomb
If you are to deploy to the mountains in winter, the only thing you'll have enough of is mosquito nets. Iif you go to the desert, pallets of climbing ropes and toboggans will appear. What do you do then, do you howl to the gods about the inequities and how Rumsfeld and Cheney were just trying to make a buck? Well yeah probably for a minute, but then you make harnesses from the ropes and pretty soon you've got a convoy of camels hauling your gear in the toboggans.(He also accuses Dana Priest of touring "military hospitals until she found the crappiest ones and also the most jerked-around wounded troops" without the slightest shred of evidence, but we'll set that aside.)
If the logistics of the American military are so completely fucked up, then why is it Jimbo thinks it's impossible that rogue elements of the Iranian military might be skimming weapons for Iraqi insurgents? In other words, why does Uncle Jimbo think the Iranian army is so much better run than ours?
