Having "top US equipment" doesn't mean you have top people using it.
Middle Eastern countries buy the equipment to have it but they don't stay current on the training, don't do regular maintenance on it, or have spare parts on hand to do repairs and upkeep. When you ask them why they say we (US Army) is going to do the fighting and they are headed to Doha until it' over.
