    Some updates.

    Iraqi forces in general are slowly reorganizing and recovering from the war. Intensive training is ongoing as well as repairing old equipment. Nothing significant on any new arms deals. Corruption is as it was. Lack of automated monitoring allowing for corrupt officers to keep tens of thousands of dollars through in their contracts. Overall the military is more capable and operational than before. However lack of political leadership and anti-corruption moves are limiting it from achieving its full potential.


    Anti-terrorism operations are ongoing. IS groups are being put down faster than they can regroup. Most IS elements don’t have safe havens inside towns or cities so they choose isolated areas such as mountain caves, desert valleys and farms to organize and meet.

    Here’s some of the continuous operations against IS elements.

    Has logistics made any improvements? Rarely hear from the non infantry roles in the Iraqi army, even though it’s the backbone of any army. The lack of automated logs probably is effecting logistics too.

    Any thoughts on the demotion of Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi and how it will effect the growth of the Iraqi army?
