Shiny Red Pump Truck

The United States is doing more than just building facilities for the Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police.  We are buying weapons, tools, vehicles, uniforms, food, water. . . If it is required to run an army, we are outfitting the Afghans with it.  Even fire trucks.

At one installation, the U.S. delivered a nice, shiny new fire truck for the base fire department.  Apparently, the limited number of fires freed up the truck for more urgent requirements:  Pumping and hauling sewage from septic tanks.  Might as well let your house burn down.
