12:02 am
errol, are more of a frustration. the united states has been providing weapons and training, yet still we have not been able to see the iraqi military go on the offensive. be a force that can stand up next to isis. although, you know, the question of will has been one raised many times. we heard from arwa dadamon's reporting, she talked to a soldier, not that they lacked the will. they have the will. they didn't have the structure, command, weapons to hold on and continue the fight. so there is a lot of questions surrounding why, first of all, iraqi troops pulled out of ramadi. and a lot of fingers being pointed. but right now, iraqi troops, along with shiite militias are preparing to retake the city. it is not going to be easy at as we have seen elsewhere in iraq. they tried to take ground from
