    We only thought that the US had supply issues via the pakistan route.

    Logistics supply is one prime reason for the slow scale of results in the war.

    So is there is shortage of US pilots or C-17 aircraft?

    They are using Russian pilots, all right. Are they also using Russian Ilyushin-76. I know they use Mil-26, Mil-17 and Mil-35 for operations in Afghanistan.
