    Now the story is they haven’t had supplies or relief for months, but they did seem to have the energy and supplies to leave.

    The Iraqi “army” exists so that the commanders can steal every penny that should go to arm, cloth and feed troops. Lots of “ghost” battalions, plenty of arms, equipment and supplies until the American advisors leave. No reason why these poor people should be willing to risk their lives for corrupt politicians who exclude sunnis and kurds from any participation in their “government”. Seems to me that, under those circumstances, getting the heck away from a battlefield is the only real option to being slaughtered. There is no government there to defend and no idea of a “nation”. When the US has to make weaponry contingent upon treating the troops decently, that says all that need be said about the “army”.

    How is it that the US is so good at spending money and training the new armies, yet they are useless and millions wasted?

    I’m reminded of the effectiveness of another “army”- ARVN, pretty much the same, except the “yards”. Once called for close support from the Vietnamese Air Farce, the guy dropped his load, seven miles away, because we were getting shot at. A Marine F-4 heard the calls and came in, fortunately.

    Of course there was the French and Italian main battle tanks, one speed forward, six in reverse.
