Iraqi Battalion Collapses Cnn Reports

Iraqi Battalion Collapses

CNN reports that the first new battalion of the Iraqi army being trained by the US has collapsed, with nearly half of recruits having resigned. Apparently poor pay ($60 a month) is one of the big complaints. But surely a further motive is their increasing suspicion that the same guerrillas who have wounded 10,000 US troops and

killed hundreds will put them through the meat grinder as soon as they are deployed.
