BlackFive: The Iranian military is teh bomb

Right wing blogger "Uncle Jimbo" at BlackFive says that, sure, soldiers shouldn't be recovering from wounds in squalor, but the American military has always been completely screwed up.
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?

It is axiomatic of all wars that while we may fail in spite of our noble ideals, the enemy is always devious, has us thoroughly infiltrated and is inhumanly efficient at mobilizing its resources against us.

After all, we all recall how ruthlessly efficient the Soviet Communists were...

Golly, finding crappy medical hospitals and jerked-around troops sounds like news, doesn't it?

Why is it that the Australian Army equipped terrorists with rocket launchers,which they planned to use in an attack on a Sydney nuclear reactor?

What? The rocket launchers were stolen from the Australian Army and sold to terrorists without the knowledge of the Australian government? Inconceivable!
