Since the militants got Daash on the significant progress in Iraq in 2014, available to the United States a second chance to work in Iraq and is trying to train the Iraqi army, though it did not succeed in qualifying for the first time when he spent it since 2003 about $ 25 billion, and the result was his withdrawal from the Iraq's northern cities.
In this regard, American officials have recently expressed optimism about the training effort that effort would be to achieve successes by the US to be an Iraqi.
In spite of the health of the United States recent efforts in achieving a few tactical improvements in the Iraqi security forces, but the military effectiveness suggests it is unlikely that a major military successes are translated on the ground against militants Daash.
The main reason behind the basic problems occurring security forces, is the political system in Baghdad, which has little interest in building a neutral army non-sectarian, so that the United States wanted a long creation is far from political clashes, the army and be of clear objectives, namely the fight against militants Daash but failed eventually.
Today America is worried about the erosion of its influence is relatively small in Baghdad , because a large part of that influence ended after the withdrawal of US troops from the country in 2011, and the entry of Iran's role as an alternative sponsor for Iraq.
In Iraq there are 3,500 US troops are divided between their training Iraqi soldiers, as well as consultants and staff. The goal of the trainers is to help the security forces to improve their skills, especially that to be trained US about 25 thousand Iraqi troops soldiers, difficulty lies in how to secure this number, because Iraqi soldiers in the structure of the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, mostly the names on paper, in the sense they're soldiers, and Humayun.
Limited the role of the Americans advisers on formats service-Iraqi army and secure the logistical side, as well as the rehabilitation of air traffic controllers to help the air effort in beating nests organization Daash.
US effort, which was launched last year, which resulted in the training of 13 thousand troops, including battalions belonging to the forces of the Kurdish Peshmerga. Security program the US to help the Iraqi army also included and targets details did not learn by Baghdad until this moment, so most likely, the Iraqi government did not provide a sufficient number of recruits to the United States in order to train them, according to military recently returned from Iraq to advisers.
He says American officials, that Baghdad provided recruits are not a combat experience, stressing at the same time that the recruits were from low military rank, such as chefs and observers of the row of soldiers. In this regard, Gen. Lloyd Austin said in his testimony before the Senate last week, that efforts to train Iraqis slow and this will affect the gains fight against al Daash.
He adds US officials commentators reasons for the failure on the Iraqi side, that the military units that have been trained other is failed the restoration of the city of Ramadi, allowing militants to Daash the opportunity to control the city's mid-year.
Iraqi officials point out the reason for not restoring gray, is the slow pace of US air strikes. But the real problem is the lack of basic tactical skills, and most importantly, the inability of the United States through its advisers to gather Iraqi capabilities and thrown a military unit and one, The skills are you talking about America's individual and Atnsag with each other.
Researchers say American and former military, that even the brave in the ranks Iraqi army were not motivated to fight, because they need the basic skills in fighting and this would commanders of units or military factions they belong to.
The researchers suggested that these skills are unlikely to provide, in particular, evolutionarily system in military regimes, because it will consume energy individual fighter. The date of the military problems and the loss efforts also to the reign of Saddam Hussein's regime.
exciting things to question, that the United States was informed in advance that the Iraqi army was weak logistically, and you know this doubled since December of 2011 before any withdrawal of the United States months, it said in report in 2010, that the challenges faced by the Iraqi army, are not having a big-combat military units.
In other words, the experts Americans discovered five years ago, said that the army, it would be difficult for him to restore the city in the event of fall, however armed, and I have based it Bactchaffhm to that logistical side of the main obstacles facing the Americans in the re-training of Iraqi forces.
and reached the US administration to the conviction, that the Iraqi government is unable or unwilling to Iraqi army reform, and moreover, these problems are regional problems, not Iraq only, all the armies of the region Arab suffer from these failures, but to varying degrees, with evidence, that the sectarian forces or militias seem more willing to fight than regular armies, and this emerged clearly when factions of the popular crowd was able to regain control of Tikrit in the month of March.
