No fries with that: fast food axed at Afghan bases
KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan (Reuters) – Fast food joints where soldiers wolf down burgers and pizza will soon be a thing of the past at bases in Afghanistan, as the U.S. military reminds soldiers they are at war and not in "an amusement park."

In the sprawling military base at Kandahar, the fast food outlets facing the axe include Burger King, Pizza Hut, and the U.S. chain restaurant T.G.I. Friday's that features a bar with alcohol-free margaritas and other drinks -- all set along the bustling "Boardwalk" area of the base.

On any given day, the giant square-shaped walkway features the surreal sight of soldiers sipping gourmet coffee and eating chocolate pastries with guns slung across their shoulders, while Canadians play ice hockey at a nearby rink and fighter jets thunder overhead.

The U.S. military says its beef with the burger joints is that they take up valuable resources like water, ...

I guess the fellows will have to settle for lung cancer, it seems to me that Afghanistan is also a large supplier of hash or marijuana. Large marijuana cache found in Afghanistan .

I find that rather hard to believe that some of the allied forces don't have at least discreet supplies of alcohol? I guess some of the families just have to send "care" packages with very well preserved food?

Isn't it amusing Muhammadanism will ban some things completely, but other drugs are free to be used?

While there was a little problem, that I saw in Vietnam in 1968, Neil, when it came too hard drugs. The real problem probably probably even now is alcoholism. I was at a company where there was a lot of excitement, where one of the old sergeants had drunk himself to death. There were a lot of alcoholics in the Army at that time. Booze is a legal drug for the American military and I would suppose the British military as well.

"The U.S. military says its beef with the burger joints is that they take up valuable resources like water, power, flight and convoy space and that cutting back on non-essentials is key to running an efficient military operation."

For some strange reason, I was under the impression the soldiers who frequent the burger joints ARE the US military.

"On any given day, the giant square-shaped walkway features the surreal sight of soldiers sipping gourmet coffee and eating chocolate pastries with guns slung across their shoulders, while Canadians play ice hockey at a nearby rink and fighter jets thunder overhead."

"Ice hockey"?
They actually built an ice rink there?

I can only assume the US squaddies will now be heading over to Tim Horton's presumably located somewhere in the vicinity of the ice rink
... at least until the pull out when the politicians put a stop to this pretence of "nation building".

Real squaddies made their own entertainment in another war zone here:

I wonder if soldiers there have access to something more entertaining (if even less nutritious) than Big Macs - opium. Afghanistan is probably the largest illicit producer of it, the Taliban notwithstanding.

My motivation: there were problems with this sort of thing in Vietnam.

It sounds like that the troops over there will be treated worse than those in Vietnam. We even had some of the amenities of life there. We at least had Beatrice foods supplying the milk products, good thing too, are would have starved to death. (Army food is supposed to have improved since that time)

Also, how are we can bring our Afghan allies into the 21st century without ham sandwiches?
