Pentagon : Only One Iraqi Battalion (800 Soldiers) Battle-Ready On Its Own

The President has been saying for nearly a year that there are more and more Iraqi troops ready to take on the responsibility for fighting the insurgency and defending Iraq without the support of US troops.

Now this.
The only Iraqi battalion capable of fighting without U.S. support has been downgraded to a level requiring them to fight with American troops backing them up, the Pentagon said Friday.
George W. Bush calls this "progress."

I have another word for it.

It was called Vietnamazation during the Vietnam war. Teach them and they will do for themselvles.

Does history repeat itself or what ?
