Good job Javelin

How about giving us a little written history to go along with the pics. Thanks for your service to this country.

This is older stuff

It still shows the old Iraqi flag. Mitt teams have had much better luck than PTT. Iraqi army guys have done much better than Iraqi police.

Problem is...

Are we training the Iraqi Army how to team up with other Islamic states who will then turn on the USA once we've pulled out our troops?

Although islam plays a big part, and most Iraqis claim to be muslim, they are definitely secular. At least for now. Once we leave, Iran will have even more influence than before. But we are smart in that very few MTT/PTT trainers teach the Iraqis anything more than basic skills. The arabs are still lazy pieces of shit who will fail in a war against us. They have no concept of cause and effect and are utterly incapable of learning from their mistakes until they have made the same ones a few times. There are, of course, some high-speed arabs, but from my experience, they are very few and far between.

Javelin, where were you at in Iraq? I was in the baghdad area, we worked alot with ISOF and occasionally MiTT teams. I agree completely with runawaygun, they will never have the desire to get off their asses and do something, and even when you train them up they are still very reluctant to get in the fight. watch my video "kill em all" and you will see how they just stand around waiting for us to tell them what to do when the shit hits the fan. Good post though!!
