definitely an interesting article, hopefully this kind of training will help Iraqi's to maintain/recover a independent state again.

' "They've got a sense of direction now, they don't need us any longer, they'll be all right," said Sgt Lamming. '(taken from linked article)

surely this is a little optimistic though?
