Iraqi troops to take control of former restive province


edition.cnn.com

The security transfer in Iraq's Anbar province originally was set for June, but it has been delayed twice.

The first postponement was blamed on a sandstorm, but days before the ceremony was to take place, there was also a suicide bombing at a meeting of tribal sheikhs in an Anbar town west of Baghdad.

IMO this is an important development to watch in Iraq . My prediction is that local forces wont cope with the situation at hand . The security situation will deteriorate and US forces will have to move back into a full time combat role . Iraqi forces couldn't cope in the south of the country so I don't see how they will cope in Anbar .

The Iraqi army and security forces haven't been screened adequately from day one .
