The Afghan National Army has only 632 medical doctors — 72 short of its goal — to care for about 177,000 soldiers nationwide. At the same time, its clinics are having equipment, supply and logistical problems.
I was in A-stan early ('03-'04). We gave those little ******** 24 brand new, fully equipped ambulances. Within 1 month, we found 3 that were wrecked (total loss), and 12 that were "converted" into rolling whore houses with darkened windows, sound systems, lighting, etc. The few that weren't soup-sandwich were under the eyes of US military. Afghans seemed to think that we gave them a gift vs the fact that we issued them a piece of equipment for a specific purpose.
The Afghans never viewed us as more than a sugar-daddy who would give them everything, and when the gift broke, we would give them more. We never taught them accountability.
Stupid way to run a war.
