Here's the same old song and dance: US Army says Iraqi forces in Ramadi need more time

WASHINGTON, Aug 3 (Reuters) - The Iraqi army and police in the Anbar capital of Ramadi will need at least another eight months before they can begin to take over local security, a U.S. military officer said on Friday.

How many times can they play this same song? This is the same message over and over and over and over again. Since 2003, it's been a non-stopWe found the WMDs, We'll stand down when they stand down, we are separating the insurgents from the populace, the Iraqis are leading the fight. In reality, it's pathetic that the only tactics and strategy are those swiped from Roger Trinquier, including the use of torture on captured enemy personal. Although, Trinquier highlights the need for effective intelligence apparatuses and a high level of cultural awareness, things completely lacking by the Regime.

Sadly, the Regime just needs to pull this off a few more times and then they'll be free and clear and able to slander the next president as the one who 'lost' his glorious war.
