Iraqi trainee kills two US soldiers in Mosul

"Two U.S. soldiers were killed and a third injured when an Iraqi soldier opened fire on U.S. troops during training in the northern city of Mosul on Saturday, the U.S. military said.

The incident occurred while U.S. soldiers were training Iraqi security forces at al-Ghazlani U.S. military camp in southern Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad, the U.S. military said."

"Three American soldiers were killed and one wounded in Iraq on Saturday, raising to five the number of service members from the United States killed here since the beginning of the year.

At the Ghazlani Training Center, south of Mosul, American soldiers were training Iraqi forces Saturday morning when a trainee opened fire on his trainers, according to an Iraqi Army officer."

It's probably difficult to ensure that all trainees don't have animosity towards US soldiers, especially in the Mosul area, which was dominated by Ba3thists and was an Al Qaeda stronghold for a while.

Arabs gotta be trained by westerners, even in soccer. After Iraq's recent win over the UAE in the Asian Cup qualifying match:

' "It was in injury time and an own-goal so it's a bit lucky at the end, but we fought all the time and forced our luck," said Iraq's German coach Wolfgang Sidka.

"It was an exciting game and we had three strikers on at the end, and finally we got the reward.

"We will enjoy this evening and from tomorrow we will start preparing for North Korea. We know we have our fate in our hands."

Srecko Katanec, the UAE's Slovenian coach, cut a despondent figure afterwards.

"We must look to win against Iran and pray Iraq lose to North Korea," he said. '

"Arabs gotta be trained by westerners, even in soccer."

I don't believe that. Iraqis are good at football.

It is common everywhere, including Britain, to bring in trainers and managers from overseas. That doesn't mean all the locals are incompetent.
