  •  I'm sure Iraqi (none)
    army is getting better with training but every account of training I have read and every account of numbers of troops trained I have come across tells me that they just won't be ready to take control of a 26 million strong ethnically-divided country in less than 4-5 years. Bremer fucked up when he dissolved the Iraqi army. You just can't create a well-trained army with a well-defined command structure overnight. It just can't be done and I'm talking about the best case scenario that we are actually training an Iraqi National Army and not just proxies for Shiite and Kurdish militias.
