The U.S. military better hope that there aren't many days like this in Kuwait. Because if the reports are true -- that four Patriot missiles were used today to fend off incoming Iraqi missiles -- then the U.S. has less than a two-week supply of Patriots left.Lt. General Ronald Kadish, who heads up the Missile Defense Agency, told the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that the American stockpile of new, PAC-3 Patriot missiles is somewhere in the "mid-fifties."So if four missiles are already gone Well, you do the math.More on Patriots tomorrow in Wired News.
