The Russian Army Has A Logistics Problem

When I look at the stalled Russian Army convoy it makes me think they have a logistics problem. The rumors floating around are that the convoy is running low on fuel and food. It makes me wonder where the soldiers are getting water, going to the bathroom, and sleeping. I suspect that there are no Porta-Potties and the gas stations along the road are out of fuel. I assumed the convoy was en route to a temporary base where they would regroup. Every day they are stuck on the road, the operational readiness of this group drops down a notch. This is no way to run a war!

Historically the importance of logistics is well understood by logisticians and generals.

“My logisticians are a humorless lot … they know if my campaign fails, they are the first ones I will slay.”
