250K bullets fired per insurgent killed
Holy cow! Our soldiers have fired so many rounds that we've run out of bullets:
US forces have fired so many bullets in Iraq and Afghanistan - an estimated 250,000 for every insurgent killed - that American ammunition-makers cannot keep up with demand. As a result the US is having to import supplies from Israel.
Now that's a heckuva ratio, huh? 250K bullets per insurgent killed.
I think a little marksmanship training might be a darned good idea, huh?
This story also makes quite clear what a disaster the Iraq mess has become: we've fired every bullet we've got and we're having to import ammunition.
And, despite that, we're still losing.
