shell shock

So our soldiers are alert, but not armed:

The Australian Army has overstated its capabilities and cannot provide enough bullets or shells to train its soldiers, according to a report by the Commonwealth auditor-general.

Responding to the criticism today, Prime Minister John Howardsfeld said, "Well, as you know, you go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you want to have."
