03/27/2003 Entry: "Logisitics anyone? "War Could Last Months, Some Military Officers Say" Wash Post, 032703"

"Commanders would like to have a 10-day supply of food, water, ammunition, fuel and other basic supplies before launching a concerted offensive, but equally critical are items such as batteries and vehicle parts."

'Would like'? Our military sent them without at least much that stuff? You know, when Genghis Khan besieged a city, he build a wall around it, sometimes taking months, and grew crops in their fields. Now, if Genghis Khan knew this over half a millennia ago...

What are they teaching these people at West Point and Sandhurst these days?

"Retired Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey said the Army and Marine forces converging on the Republican Guard south of Baghdad really will have no choice but to continue to attack those Iraqi defenders. 'We've got no option, we're committed,' he said. But, he added, 'I wouldn't go into Baghdad before I had another armored division come up into my rear.'

Well, maybe General McCaffrey was awake in class that day.

"The question is whether the Third Infantry Division will be able to continue to fight the Republican Guard without reinforcements. 'I think the Third ID is going to run out of steam pretty soon, both people and machines,' said Killebrew, the retired Army planner."
War Could Last Months, Some Military Officers Say, By Thomas E. Ricks, Washington Post Staff Writer, Wednesday, March 26, 2003; 8:42 PM

I don't like this "war" but if you're going to send in troops, for God's sake at least do it right.
