Iraqi Security Force Training
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg

There have in the past been a number of proposals out there to take Iraqi security forces out of Iraq and train them in a safer environment.  This does of course lead to one complication.  They don't really want to go back

Numerous Iraqi military and law-enforcement officials brought to the U.S. as part of special intelligence and training programs have run away and are seeking asylum in this country or disappeared altogether, The Washington Times has learned.

Intelligence officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity, say nearly a dozen Iraqis fled military training facilities in the U.S., including a brigadier general who went to Canada with his family earlier this year.

Well, that speaks to the preservation instinct of our recruits if not their devotion to Iraq.

A dozen? The US Army has 'em beat--4,698 soldiers deserted this year (FY 2007), compared to 3,301 last year. It must be at least 10,000 since the most recent wars started.

Thank you for your sharing! I like i very much!

I think the reasons behind the poor quality of Iraqi forces. As the U.S. military has been training and fighting alongside the Iraqis for five years, number of American officers and soldiers say they do not trust their Iraqi counterparts. In the main, this is because Iraqi forces are rife with sectarian loyalties.
