Australian Government sees light on Iraq
Today a member of our glorious Australian government announced that Australian troops would remain in Iraq and continue to train Iraqi troops. The minister said that first Iraqi troops would be taught to crawl, then they'd be taught to walk and then they'd be taught to run. I'm glad to see that the government has finally realized that running is the most important survival skill for Iraqis these days.
Since the people responsible for the invasion are not going to pay for the tens to hundreds of thousands of Arabic speaking troops and police required to stabilize the situation, running (phased withdrawal as non English speakers say) might be a least worst solution for coalition* troops.
*The U.S. army has the nonsensical slogan "Army of One." This appears to be preperation for the equally nonsensical "Coalition of One."
