The ING kick butt.
Today there was a small fight. Needless to say the Iraqi National Guard were increadible. Running out of their barracks however they were dressed to engage the terrorists. Some, in just underwear or PJs grabbing their weapons, jumping on the back of a truck and speeding off into the fight.
What this tells me is that all the Iraqis who surrendered to us during the previous two wars did so not because they weren't willing to fight for Iraq, but because they weren't willing to fight for Saddam.
I've heard a lot of talk about how they just aren't ready to take over for the US forces yet...and that may be the case...but it's the case because of their present numbers, not because of their willingness to fight or training.
