Actually you raise an important point, what's the function of the Army? In the US, Posse Comititus (sp?) prohibits using the Army internally (except in very special cases, as Eisenhower did in Little Rock). And Costa Rica gets by very well without an Army. What Iraq needs is Police (which they're getting) and a very small Army (as long as the US is there, ain't nobody going to try to invade). Which is interesting, as armies and police have very different training and goals.
