Topic: The New Iraqi Military


The Iraqi Military is being designed to be a purely defense military,However besides the 36,000 troops I havn't heard anything for the actual Iraq military, such as tanks and things of that nature. Does anyone know what they will actualy have or what they have now?

I wouldn't say 36,000 troops trained and in the field, most have deserted. But the commando units have been training with ours, and can hold their own, the special forces say they are excellent.

I was just reading a CNN report that said thier are 136,000 Iraqi's currently serving in uniform, however one Democrat pointed out the numbers are useless cause last year they were saying well over 200,000.

It's kinda hard to tell since the DoD is blowing smoke up our ass by talking about 130,000 trained soldiers. There are obviously more than 4,000 trained, although it might be true that only 4,000 have combat experience.
