    Combat forces are independent fighting units (BCTs) capable of engaging in offensive and defensive operations on their own. They have the equipment and military command and control to take objectives and control real estate.

    Iraqi forces will now have that mission with the US in a supporting role. Our Combat BCTs have been sitting on the sidelines without a mission for a year now anyway
