Tanks show up in Europe with dead batteries and no fuel.
The error stemmed from neglectful soldiers who forgot to disable the tanks’ systems while they were in transport. Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of all Army forces in Europe, said the errors reflected an experience deficit in modern soldiers. “It is stuff we used to know,” he lamented to TheWSJ.
The dead tanks were not the only logistical obstacle U.S. forces faced on their way to the Russian border. Several armored vehicles also struck the tops of bridges on the way to Poland because U.S. forces lacked inaccurate information on the road routes in NATO countries, which are part of the former Soviet Union.
Yup, keep lowering the standards for enlistees, allow tattoos and piercings and gay and trans and women. See, it's working out real well.
Ding Ding Ding! Winner winner chicken dinner!
Readiness just isn't equipment and logistics...it's having people that know their craft...and not only is the personnel diminished thanks to Obama's cheapening of the gene pool...but it is obvious training budgets have been raided to fund other operational needs...or politically-driven misdeeds!
Gonna have to purge Obamian leadership from the ranks along with the deadwood...right now this bunch couldn't handle much thrown at it...and one thing warfare shakes down to quickly once technology is equaled or overcome is the quality of the people on the line.
