Anyone knows that air conditioning is a necessity in those conditions, if they've ever lived in the desert. You can get by with less expensive "swamp coolers" for dryer climates.
Are they talking about permanent military bases, when they mention fast food and swimming pools? Most permanent bases provide things such as those, as well as arcades and a movie theater.
Anyone who thinks A/C is "excessive", has never had to put up with 115 degree heat.

The fast food is sold out of a trailer, typically. It's not a big deal. The swimming pools are frequently at the palaces where a pool already existed. There may be excess, but if there were not supplies available at these logistic centers there'd be no way to supply the troops. How would we fix helicopters, tanks, HMMWVs, and other items with an ultra lean system? Where would the soldiers get their fuel, MREs, and ammo? If Max thinks the PXs are too big, fine. But it's not exactly cushy living, and it's not the reason we're having problems there.
