“Brits” never were too bright.

My late father (USMC WWII, Korea, Vietnam) helped burn millions of tons of brand-new lumber in the South Pacific when World War II was over. We left plenty of equipment in Vietnam, Iraq, the Philippines, etc.

Yeah, I mean the dumb Limeys, Jocks, Taffys and Micks only built the greatest empire ever seen, won two world wars, and gave the world most of its greatest inventions and discoveries, literature, art and culture of the last 300-400 years......

I wonder what they would have done if they had been bright.

We’ve done the same... but included weapons...

Don’t you think that, perhaps, the Brits might want the Taliban to collect and use stuff left behind?

UM, the US is leaving far more than that. There are untold amounts of equipment that is there that no one knows who ordered it or what to with it.

We do the same thing. There’s lots of equipment that’s not worth the cost to bring back. Most of it has been worked hard and isn’t in good shape, and it’s all bulky and heavy, and the accounting department has already depreciated it out on the ledgers so they’d be looking for an excuse to get rid of it at home anyway. It’s never anything dangerous, jeeps, half shells, cots, general crap. Weapons and ammo come home, general supplies frequently stay.
