Regarding the rain, it was probably the hardest rain in the last six months. It has maybe rained on only four or five days during that timespan as well. I’m sure the Taliban weren’t prepared for that.
It’s always wonderful when an illustration truly clarifies organizational structures and processes. Unfortunately, that is not the case with the ANA logistics system. Instead, this looks more like a Family Circus comic strip.
