You dont have to be a genius to work that the current US strategy will fail in Iraq. By relying on sheer numbers of Iraqi security forces to contain the insurgency the US is achieving nothing expect for offering more targets to the insurgents. To a certain extend the insurgents need to became the hunted.
A small - medium elite security force is needed special forces in effect is needed. It would take longer to train an elite security force but it is
Iraqs best chance of containg the insurgency.
Of course many people have overlooked the possibilitie that the Iraqi people could elect another Saddam type clone. The best case scenario for Iraq
is a democratic government that faces a security situation much like Israel dose only worse.
