Lessons of Iraq 2003

What went down in Iraq was blitzkrieg on methamphetamines. The combat commanders were ready for it, but the warriors and logisticians had never sorted out what all this high-speed combat would do to the supply system. While the supplies did get through, there were local shortages. Things got lose and, when it was all over, more than a billion dollars worth of stuff was missing.
