FORT IRWIN, California--The dust clouds from the convoy of United States Army tanks disperse and on the horizon an Iraqi town complete with mosques, municipal buildings and people emerges.
The road signs are in Arabic and the ambulances that trundle through the city's streets carry the insignia of the Red Crescent.
It could be Fallujah, Basra or Tikrit. In fact, it is California.

This is interesting. The effort to build such a particular realistic training ground for Iraq may show that the US is infact preparing for a long term stay.
