    win or lose as many battles as fighters do, they face many of the risks, because -- the other side knows that logistics win or lose battles.

      I started out in logistics.  In my little address, I summed up logistics like this:

      "Without us, the Army would consist of a bunch of sweaty, naked men and women running around the desert fighting each other with sticks."

      And yeah, the other side knows that too.

      We don't talk about "lines of supply" much anymore, but it used to be perhaps the biggest obstacle to the ambitions of armies.

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
