Free advice and worth the cost

So President Obama is going to send Special Forces advisers to the Iraq  national army. What are they going to advise them to do, not run away?

The problem is not that the army doesn't know how to fight -- it may or it may not -- but that it has no reason to fight.

Didn't we learn anything in Vietnam? Obviously not.

UPDATE, June 22

Since America has 5,000 people in the Baghdad embassy, which is considerably over the estimated strength of the ISIS battle force that is routing the Iraq national army, it occurs to me that maybe the problem of the Iraq government is too much American advice already.

We know what happens
