Iraqi Police Targeted
As so many Iraqi police have been killed by terrorists, I find it interesting that Iraqis are still willing to join such a targeted group. Just today, there were 43 deaths at a Baghdad police academy at the hands of two suicide bombers. To me, this indicates how seriously Iraqis take their freedom, and how badly they want their country to move forward toward a democracy of some sort. If they were all as angry at America as the MSM would have us believe, I don't think there would be so many police recruits. Essentially, to join the Iraqi police force is to cooperate with the U.S. Despite the very real danger of death, many have joined anyway. I'd be interested in actual recruitment numbers, if anyone has them.
