    The problem in Iraq is the constant talk about the past, yes the past (recent pas as in 70s) was a period of advancement and the country is rich in history especially on the level of knowledge.

    But currently, they don't like to talk about now and no one seems to fix it. People aren't well behaved, education is far from a priority and everyone with power is corrupt to the core. The system the US presented to Iraq just doesn't work well.

    I don't doubt that it'll get fixed but that'll take a long time. The population is growing strongly thus the country can wield some good power in the region if governance gets good.

    I was in another forum and someone said," incorrect. ISOF does not equal CTS.
    ISOF forces are the teeth components under CTS.

    CTS is the command staff/ministorial level and includes seperate sections from ISOF [intel, Support, procurment, etc] - analoges to USSOCOM/DoD, while ISOF is the equivalent to USSOF .

    Watch out on the ERUs. Every province has 1-6 of them. The Provincial ERUs are police bns [think precinct] with a company of SWAT equivalents under local command [~36].

    The National ERD/ERUs are HRT equivalents directly under MoI.

    Note that this was true 8 years ago as it is now - the diff is that CTS was finally parlimentary approved after Malaki was gone..."

    In 2014 Iraq signed a deal for 24 Ah-64 Apaches. By signing the deal, the Iraqi Armed Forces would have a fleet of extremely high-skilled attack helicopters. Apart from the Apaches, last year Baghdad also signed an agreement with Russia for the purchase of 12 Mil Mi-28 Havoc helicopters, the AH-64 E’s main rival, which are primarily used by the Russian Armed Forces. 20190516_212119.jpeg
