I agree 110% with the sentiments. I can just see him gettin screwed for it.

It's precisely the kind of sh*t those guys need to hear though.

I guess the truth's gotta be said sooner or later. Better sooner I say, and bugger the consequences, our leaders know the truth, it's about time they were shown that the people who count are also aware of the truth of the matter.

I know what you mean though. I don't think anyone disagrees with what you're saying. Nowadays sometimes doing the right thing isn't doing the right thing. Actually, not sometimes, often.

If what this guy says is true (and I assuming that at least some or all of it is) doesn't that reinforce the argument that its time for the boys to fold the tents and come home? I mean what is the point of staying if the so called Iraqi Police are either A) Cowards or B) even worse, Part of the militias?

Personally I just don't see the interest of throwing good (our troops, money) into bad. Its been 6 years, we have bigger fish to fry and remember as we speak Afghanistan which is a far more dangerous situation is going to hell in a hand basket.

Not that simple. Not all IP's are bad depends on the area where they are recruited and on their CO's and officers.

What I find sad is how so many American cops behave little to no different than the Iraqi cops. Whatever happened to the honor part of being a cop?
