U.S. Advising Iraqi Military To Work With Locals

By DMO Affiliate
The United States is advising the Iraqi military to work closely with tribes and local leaders so as not to trigger a wider sectarian conflict as they drive militants from Ramadi and Fallujah. "What we would like to see is them working with the local security forces," said Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army chief of staff. "We're trying to coach them as best we can on these issues." Iraq's military operations in largely Sunni Anbar province will be a test of the more restrained counterinsurgency tactics the United States attempted to impart to Iraq's military as it rebuilt the organization after the 2003 U.S.-led offensive that toppled Saddam Hussein.
