12. ''failure'' of Iraqi forces is racist and ahistorical
Previous Iraqi forces managed to fight Iran, a bigger country to a draw, and invade Kuwait.

Current Iraqi INSURGENTS have inflicted casualties on the forces of the world's only superpower.

They are entirely capable of defending and policing themselves.

The real question is can we train Iraqis to oppress their own people to benefit our oil companies? They would have had a better chance of that if they left Saddam's army intact, so they could do the same job for a different boss.
