ISKANDARIYAH, Iraq - (KRT) - The Iraqi special forces troops assigned to the U.S. Marines here fight, live, sleep and learn alongside their Marine
counterparts, sharing personal stories, jokes and training tips.
Last year, some of them were exchanging rifle and rocket fire with Marines in the single deadliest battle of the Iraq ground war.
It seems that at least some Iraqis actually want to fight for their country.
It must be pretty tough, working WITH the people, who you wanted to kill just last year. I really admire the ability of BOTH sides to put the past,
where it belongs.
