Why does all of this talk about training the Iraqi forces seem so familiar?
Those of us old enough to remember the War in Vietnam can’t forget the constant talk back then that all we had to do was train up the South Vietnamese and then we could leave. Hahaha! Take a look at the time period on the cover of this book by Brigadier General James Lawton Collins, Jr.
And while we are on the topic, didn’t the Iraqis have a 400,000 man army before the first Gulf War?
