17-months Later U.S. Can’t Find any Iraqis to ‘Train’*

In a blow to a central component of the US military’s strategy in the Iraq/Syria region, current and former US military officials said efforts to retrain and reunify Iraq’s regular army have failed to create enough combat units or limit sectarian militias.

“The Iraqi military’s capacity hasn’t improved that much – part of that is the continuing challenge of recruitment and retention,” retired U.S. Lieutenant General Mick Bednarek told Reuters in an exclusive story.

Bednarek led the U.S. military’s training programs in Iraq from 2013 to 2015.

The people of Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya have also woken up to American intentions and Obama’s efforts to colonize them are also failing. The simple fact is that the US is on the wrong side of history – they no longer have the economic power to maintain puppet dictatorships on six continents.
