NATOs war planners call it the iron mountain, the $2.7 billion mass of military equipment that will be dropped on Afghanistan over the next eight months. But will the mountain be tall enough? Between now and next March, the U.S.-led coalition will deliver 22,000 vehicles, including 514 new four-wheeled mobile strike force armored vehicles yet to be used in Afghanistan, 44 airplanes and helicopters, 40,000 weapons, and tens of thousands of radios and other pieces of communications gear. Its an enormous amount of equipment, vehicles and weapons, said one U.S. military official. Some Afghans, however, are looking at what the mountains missing, particularly fighter jets and tanks. Among them is Defense Minister Abdul Rahim Wardak, who believes such sophisticated weaponry would intimidate the Taliban and keep neighbors Iran and Pakistan at bay.
