I just spent a day calculating with my kids how much food that army per member had if the 20 k horses were the modern size and they ate even the eyeballs.

Germany did the same. Hell, their weakness was the only reason my country remained independent.

But I'd like you to see middle east as your winter war in Russia. You can, and you apparently do spend a lot there but some say cheaper means could be used.
