US Marines - Iraqi Auxiliary Troops

From Reuters, via Haaretz :
HADITHA, Iraq - U.S. Marines are using a private Iraqi security force to help them hunt down insurgents and say the tactic, while little used so far, is working. [...]

Getting better
The Guard's leader, a 20-year-old Iraqi called Monir Captain, says his men are fighting to protect Iraqis across the country, including in his own neighborhood in Baghdad.

'Life is starting to get better in Baghdad and I feel that it's because of me and my guys, fighting here in the desert, so they can live in peace,' he said in good English.
This is not only terrific news. It also shows how easy it would be to recruit great soldiers from all over the world for an American Foreign Legion.
