Suicide Bomber Kills 35 Iraqi Police Recruits

If this isn't reason enough to train the Iraqi troops in another country, I don't know what is.  To fix the mess in Iraq, you must train Iraqi military and police in other countries.  This suicide bombing simply illustrates the point.  There police trainees cannot be protected inside Iraq.  In addition to the 35 men that were killed, another 58 were wounded.  These attacks targeting police recruits continue over and over again, yet nobody looks for a viable solution.


The only way the United States military will get out of the country is if the Iraqis have a police force and military of their own.  They cannot get that if they keep getting killed. Security obviously cannot be ensured for these recruits.  If you let them train in other nations, they will not be killed. You would think that is relatively easy concept to grasp.


In addition to the deaths, the Iraqi police and military recruits are often infiltrated by insurgents.  It is difficult to tell the difference between the good guys and the bad guys while in Iraq.  However, if they are trained elsewhere, they can easily be monitored and weeded out accordingly.


Sometimes the simplest answer is the right one.  Train the Iraqis elsewhere and then bring them back to Iraq.  Other nations have already offered to do just that.


This is a major piece of the puzzle in stabilizing Iraq and bringing our boys home.  It must be done or our troops will never get out of Iraq.
