Re: Goverment buys 20million dollars worth of firewood.
Ok now, let's do a little math

based on info here....

[link to forestry.about.com]

at American prices, a pickup truck bed full of firewood should run about $57 bucks.

$20,000,000 of firewood at American retail prices, not "special" DOD pricing, equals....

350,877 truck loads of firewood.

Curent troop levels in Afganistan, approximately 88,000 -- including NON-COMBAT troops housed in military installations that use non-firewood sources of heat and power.

Using a conservative figure for tooth-to-tail (combat to non-combat troops) of 33%, or 1/3, that equates to about 29,000 actual combat troops.

If each one of those guys was in the field, camping out, and burning firewood, that equates to each soldier using 12 truck loads of wood--about 4.5 cords of wood at a total cost of about $690 per troop just for firewood.

Maybe Leon Panetta can figure out a way to buy those boys the latest in ultralight backpacking camp stoves at REI for about $50 retail, and use the other $640 to keep those stoves in fuel for the next 10 years or so. And, we won't need risky and expensive military convoys to get all that damn firewood into the hills and mountain areas.

Just sayin

From the comments

there is no big surprise on that one.

I was an advisor in Afghanistan, and spent unit money on firewood for the Afghani Civil Order Police (ANCOP) that I advised. They use it to cook with. We got a monthly budget that was spent on items our partner unit needed. Things like firewood, diesel fuel, commo stuff…

US tax dollars built the JRAC just outside of KAF (our big FOB in Kandahar). At the JRAC, the ANCOP, Border Police, and Afghani Police all have their own seciton. Their dinning facilities are built to use propane for cooking rice indoor and such, and they have outdoor ovens that use fire wood. They cook their bread this way. They cook bread every single meal.

American tax dollars have built them hospitals purchased Ford Ranger trucks for the military and police, uniforms, and all manner of equipment.

Folks should not be shocked that we have also purchased fuel to cook with.
At least they cannot take fire wood and use it to make road side bombs like they can with propane, fertalizer, and other stuff.

If you have never had Afghani Bread cooked in a wood oven, then you are missing out

Re: Goverment buys 20million dollars worth of firewood.
very vague article

for one it says it's spend on firewood IN AFGHANISTAN, 20 million EACH YEAR

than someone says 'quote unquote' that they say it's for firewood but it's spent on other stuff

all makes no sense, and certainly no evidence for tshtf in US
