    In terms of combat training, they will eventually learn. But, a bigger issue is their allegiance. I don't know to what authority they will report.

    The still larger issue is the direction of the country.  Let's assume the elected government manages to stabilize the country, with representatives of Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds participating. I have no idea where that coutry will be headed. Is it a good idea that the country will have a functional, cohesive army, right next to Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait? In order to police the development there, Ameria is likely to have to have permanent military presence, and this is the best case.
