$7B is around the amount of equipment and rolling stock that was PDO'd to LN's or destroyed at Al Asad, Iraq. I would hate to see the numbers from Victory Base.

IIRC, we sent the Iraqi's 100 MRAPs and a bunch of SUV/pickups in late 2010 because someone forgot to cancel the order.

We need a "ping" capability. Allegra could chime in on this.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

Isn't she over there again at the moment? Pretty sure she said she would be by now.
