    ----- How can an army - constitutionally forbidden to operate domestically, such as the US army - train another army to fight, not against foreign enemies in distant lands, but against fellow countrymen, co-religionists, and, even, tribesmen in their own homeland?


    ---- Can the Iraqi army be transformed into a non-sectarian, professional fighting force devoted to the nation as a whole and not just to a region or village or sect?

    good questions.

    This points out how wrong it is to try and use a military force to "fix" Iraq.

    This is a problem created by a group of people who had no sense of the history ,religious affiliations of the people and the depth of the problem they were creating in persuing this military action.

    They had visions of oil pipelines in their heads instead of the safety and well being of our country.

    They are like used car salesmen using a chainsaw to fix a mental illness instead of calling in a Dr with the right skills and tools.

    That is why what they are doing will never give the results Americans want.

    Like any country, we embrace our successes (or good qualities) and acknowledge (and apologize for) our bad qualities.

    this applies to decisions mainly
