I Didn't think we had enough ordnance left for our strategic bomber fleet for those type of sustained bombing operations?

It wasn't long ago last year I believe that then Chief of Staff USAF Mark Welsch was reporting the Air Force was literally running out of bombs.

Well we made many swimming pools for monkeys in Vietnam with dumb bombs, so why not redecorate the litter box in Afghanistan?

I'm just surprised we had enough to do that I remember hearing that the strategic bomber fleet was not what it once was in terms of ordnance because I heard the stock were low I guess not.

I think the shortage is not on the bomb bodies themselves but on the parts that turn dumb bombs into smart bombs. Also the real sophisticated bombs like JADM.
