"At the same time, he said, attacks on Iraqi security forces have declined slightly, citing figures that compare the period of mid-February to mid-May to the preceding three months."
Go figure, unlike so many US politicians, the Shia aren't talking about pulling out of Iraq. So no matter what you do to the Iraqi forces, the Shia are still going to be around in a couple of years. With all of the US politicians out there talking about surrender, the US military is a much more sensible target.
Thanks Hillary and Obama, for supporting our troops.
