Logistics are fascinating! It would be interesting to read a history of the Iraqi logistical system over the past thirty years. Firstly, you would have an armed forces trained on the Soviet model, with all the problems inherent in a system laid out for a quick war. Then you have the war with Iran, which was far from quick, which undoubtedly required a great deal of logistical rewiring. Then you have the sanctions between Gulf I & II that precluded buying new equipment and spares. The ingenuity they used in keeping things working...the Iraqi logistical system was thinking in guerrilla terms long before the rest of the ex-armed forces were. Now Iraqi logisticians are starting over completely.

Yep, fascinating. But only on Fridays.
