    We're training Iraqis at bases here in the states.

        I would guess so that they can have the ability to fight their own war.

          Also that's where training can be done away from an active theater of war.  As this shows, training itself is dangerous enough without adding other perils into the mix.

    You can give these guys any amount of training they will still mess it up. They are poor aviator material. The US always backs the wrong people
