The case of the Hellfire missile delivery to Cuba instead of the United States, as well as many other similar blasts, indicate the ineffectiveness of the Pentagon’s logistics service, writes columnist Bloomberg, national defense expert Tobin Harshaw. His article leads RIA News.


Bloomberg on the Pentagon's Logistical Mistakes


“No one has ever boasted about the effectiveness of the Pentagon, but even so, everyone who tried to protect the failures of logistics and the extravagance of the Ministry of Defense was terribly embarrassing,” the expert notes.

“In September 2013, a military contractor“ lost ”several unmanned aerial vehicles in Afghanistan and on the way to the USA, costing 500 thousands of dollars each. After almost 250 days, they were accidentally discovered in Texas, ”Harshaw writes.

Recently, it was reported that the Pentagon "cannot find cargo weapons worth 500 million dollars sent to Yemen. "

The author believes that "these cases can still be attributed to the confusion of the war in Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen, but sending Hellfire to a country under US sanctions is an obvious signal of distortions in the Pentagon."

The expert cites other examples:

“Last year, the military laboratory in Utah dispatched anthrax disputes throughout the country and to several foreign countries by the FedEx postal service. A few months later, a similar scandal broke out due to samples of bubonic plague sent out by mistake.

In 2014, a private company that received a contract for 305 million dollars for the delivery of personal vehicles to military personnel returning to the United States from other countries was unable to find some of them in the system. The families of the military who filed a lawsuit against the company claimed that of the 27, thousands of 70% cars were missing or delayed. ”

Now examples related to nuclear weapons:

“In 2007, the B-52 bomber flew over the territory of the United States for several hours, as it turned out, with six nuclear warheads installed. In a report that was later declassified, the Pentagon justified that the Air Force of the country could not follow the hundreds of components of the nuclear arsenal.

In the 2014 year, due to the lack of keys to install nuclear warheads on intercontinental ballistic missiles, the equipment of three American bases sent the keys to each other via FedEx courier company. ”

In conclusion, the expert points to the fact that “none of the draft bills on the Pentagon’s audit was adopted by the congress”, and there is not much sense from the new accounting software.

      everyone who tried to protect the failures of logistics and the extravagance of the Ministry of Defense was terribly ashamed. ”

      The question is, when and for what was the ashamed mattress ashamed?
      delivery of personal vehicles of military personnel returning to the United States from other countries,

      Well, or rather looted or selected.
      examples related to nuclear weapons:

      But for such gouging it’s already really becoming scary, as far as I remember, the striped lost warheads.

        Sergey, I agree on the misunderstanding, but on the account I gave birth, Russia, though indirectly, is guilty of the appearance of the USA! When England declared a naval blockade of the colonies in America, Catherine II sent a military squadron to accompany the merchants! In my opinion, the young then Fedor Fedorovich Ushakov also participated in this expedition!

        Although even if the United States did not become a separate country, and remained a protectorate of England, it would still be nothing good, the Anglo-Saxons must be destroyed, all the evil on the planet is only because of this vile nation!

      Not the topic guys. But I want to share my opinion and the video that I watched. Many recently, and always, such people in Russia were in all regimes and governments who do not like the state in which they live, constantly hayat it. When they live worse, they criticize, when they live well, everything is also bad. And what is interesting, they use other countries as an example, such as the USA, Japan or the notorious EU, where everything seems to be all right, that for the happiness of a simple everyday person everything is there, a certain country of Wonders, Wonderland in English, without bothering to live there for several years at least. And in those countries, everything is not cloudless, for every plus there is a minus. For example, in the video below, from the story of a person, I realized that in the United States everyone is happy and comfortable and smiling, not because they are, but because social norms make you seem like that, otherwise they will impose fines for poverty, take away children, will not give credit if not creditworthy and so on, that is, in fact, in the states, you yourself need to not be considered poor. If you complain about the government, it will be worse for you. So far, and maybe this will never happen, in Russia they are not yet fined for poverty and other domestic "crimes" such as hammering a nail in a house without a license from the construction company that built the house, celebrating your birthday too noisy after 10 pm, you will not snitch on the offender, they will knock on you for not knocking, maybe you are an accomplice and so on. So guys, think about it and ask yourself an honest question, would you like to get the same living conditions and rights, infringing on yourself in another? just ask when you think that our state "strangles" you. I'm not saying that you have to endure everything that the government does, there is something to work on, but I just want to say that there, beyond the hill, not everything is cloudless, as it seems, and other freedoms in Russia are much better and more. Swimming in the lake, fishing, barbecuing in nature, shouting and singing drunken songs at night on the street or even in the yard of your house. This is not the whole list of the list that is used by almost everyone in everyday life, which are prohibited there. I would also like to add that the policeman will drop in on you quite often for any complaints from neighbors, and he can shoot you if he thinks that you are threatening him. Judging by the videos on YouTube, and seeing how our people treat our "cops", I always think if we had the same order as theirs, the country's population would have shrunk very quickly. Live freely and appreciate what you have.

        You can hammer in nails, nobody will tell you words

        , celebrate your birthday too noisy after 10 o’clock in the evening, don’t snitch at the intruder, snitch at you for not snitching, maybe you are an accomplice and so on.

        Nonsense, but after 10 it’s impossible to make noise, otherwise the police will be called and she will calm her down - absolutely right, and what's the problem? You do not live alone tea, you must think the same about others
        Quote: Max_Bauder
        So guys think carefully and ask yourself honestly the question, would you like to get the same living conditions and rights, infringing on yourself in another?

        In what? What would your neighbor make noise every day until 2 in the night, what would the left plumber or electrician come in, and then you will be flooded and electric shocked?
        You know, it's better to be offended. but live in peace and security.

    Oh, these American mistakes, and how alive they are still; how have you not yet bombed yourself with your own nuclear weapons? You are simply amazed! But in general, if, God forbid, a nuclear apocalypse begins, then the fault will not be Russia, China or North Korea, but some American drug addict who was on duty at the security facility ... Joking jokes, and American disorder, carelessness and irresponsibility are simply is amazing.

    They stuck to the Cubans with this rocket ... How can they give back what they have not had for a long time? They would have sent immediately to Moscow Aeroflot, and then some air-France through Havana. There, they have more than a mess, there seems to be a systemic ass, and it’s not easy to fix it with such stupidity of performers.

    The listed punctures are a fee for the speed of services.
    Spare parts for military equipment arrive in Israel, for example, within 24 hours.
    And the Indians wait their own from other countries (Western Europe, Russia) for weeks and months.

    And if someone else’s intelligence intercepts - like with a missile to Cuba - well, it was necessary
    send by special flight ... fellow

      Ahhh, so that’s why our mail is so leisurely — it’s the most accurate in the world — it wasn’t wrong, but if it didn’t work out, the guys want to aim more precisely so as not to make a mistake. Schaz will tear me with pride.

    you don’t have to think long: either Her Majesty corruption is thriving in the Pentagon, or Cuba intelligence (the daughter of the KGB) really worked. in any case, this is the answer to those who scold our army and our mail.

    (The Pentagon “cannot find a cargo of arms worth $ 500 million sent to Yemen.”)

    There is nothing easier how to turn to the leadership of ISIS via YouTube. It is harder and longer to do it through Twitter.

    He finally parted with another of his illusions. In the mid-90s, he worked on the installation of the PIK nuclear reactor. And suddenly a terrible kipesh like "grab the bags - the station departs" from the side of the authorities. It turned out: an American-Anglo-Canadian delegation came and they were horrified, turning into hysteria, from our system of protecting nuclear facilities. THERE THERE SO It was? NEVER! This warm bunch of money allocated for the modernization of security systems, which we have successfully mastered in an emergency. Then some infa began to seep to me, I had vague doubts about the veracity of their words, and this article finally finished me off. Everything. Goodbye America with its own order.

    Larz I agree with you. I also understood this from the nineties, when a teacher came to us to practice with my mother Larsen in my opinion. during the conversation, I realized that not everything is as smooth as the showcase shows. to top it off, maybe with a topic but a topic. the soul enters the chamber, they tell you your sins with good deeds equally, vibrate yourself where to go. I went to watch paradise: everyone eats fruit, angels around. Well, hell is watching: boys are driving on wheelbarrows, an eternal holiday with a drink. he chose hell. Then the steward comes and says: in his eighth cauldron. the poor in fear says what about all this? they answer him: it was an advertisement.

    The case of the delivery of Hellfire missiles to Cuba instead of the United States, as well as many other such headaches, indicate the Pentagon’s logistics service is ineffective, writes Toom Harshaw, columnist for national defense, Bloomberg.

    Americans can only sympathize. What I do. Be careful. Do not rely only on computers. Sometimes you need to include a thinker.

    probably at the “post” where the rocket was sent from, the operator was a “former” Cuban. and as usual, everything will work out in the “farm”.

    At first I hear that the tool would be - the keys were secret.

    It’s not a matter of secrecy. It’s just that rather elementary savings (read greed) on trifles seem to not directly affect safety. And then this turns out to be wrong. A clear example is the disaster of their shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986. In brief, removing the details, I’ll fix .There several times the launch time was moved due to weather restrictions at the shuttle's emergency landing bases. Finally, everything became valid, but it turned out that the external shuttle hatch was faulty and a large wrench (large torque wrench) was required to repair it, which the control panel did not have .had to send for it. Time passed and the start was scheduled for the morning of January 28. And at night they froze (this is something in Florida !!) and the rubber gaskets on one solid fuel accelerators lost their tightness due to the transition of water (condensate) from one aggregate state to another and vice versa. Well, then everyone knows: start. burnout of solid-fuel accelerators and an explosion of a tank with liquefied fuel ... That's the way bed like a wrench, delivered out of time, leads to a major disaster with loss of life.
    As for the big blunders, it is enough to recall how in 2007 the B-52 carried a nuclear weapon for 35 hours, which, instead of a training one, was given to him by mistake from a storage facility at an air base. And no one noticed this. stood for 9 hours in an unguarded parking lot in Louisiana. until a passing technician drew on the color of the ammunition (it differs from the training one and the usual one) and reported to the base management. After that, a slight panic began there ... laughing
    so that the Americans are not the first to make mistakes grossly. but with Hellfire, of course they went too far — to put weapons in the sanctions country. this is strong! smile

    A lot of bukaffff .. But I did not learn to write in Russian, an ignoramus.
