All that equipment requires skilled maintenance and likely will be useless in 90 days.
Still not good news but “Marine Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, said some of the equipment had been ‘demilitarized,’ essentially rendered inoperable.”
As usual, the alt-rights exaggerate the amount and value of equipment left behind… and ignore that the Taliban has very few resources to operate and maintain a lot of it… and that U.S. soldiers purposely damaged some of what they had to leave behind…
Didn’t any of these clowns realize the gear is 20y old? They never send the updated gear. Never.
Who’s going to operate and maintain all those wonderful toys? What about the fuel bill?
Strange how Congress can work together to fund “peacekeeping” in the MENA — at an almost guaranteed increase in federal debt — but cannot see eye to eye on infrastructure investment at home which usually has ROI in a short time.
