Iraq is too broken for Obama's advisers, but tribal fighters can put back pieces

www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/27...

The United States' decision to deploy a limited number of military "assessors" and "advisers" to figure things out in Baghdad, essentially, before doing anything will do close to nothing to resolve the country's immediate security threats. With such a small number of boots on the ground, the only realistic objective to which the US can hope to contribute is too simple: helping to protect the capital from an Isis onslaught.

Even if it wanted to, the US is clearly incapable of resolving Iraq's larger problems. After all, it was under the watchful eye of 200,000 American soldiers that the Iraqi military, with all its pathologies, got established in the first place. And the calamities in Mosul and Tikrit only accentuated what many have been warning of for years: Iraq's armed forces are bloated, poorly trained and equipped, and led by a corrupt and incompetent officer corps and political elite.[/quote]
Always Thinking
Mosul's remaining Christians were fleeing the city yesterday after the brutal ISIS occupiers told them to convert to Islam or face summary execution.
