I agree. I was there in 90-91, and the Iraqi army was nothing. All the hype about them being the world's 4th largest army was propaganda. Their equipment was mostly WWII leftover stuff.

I was on the Port of Jubail in Saudi, and we had captured thousands of Iraqi vehicles, including anti-aircraft guns. Stuff like this[^]. You're not going to shoot down a jet doing 700mph with a hand cranked gun.

They did have a million men, but they were mostly conscripts, and were poorly trained and equipped. When I read Schwarzkopf's bio he talked about the war and he mentioned that the US killed 60K Iraqis with B52 bombing raids alone. And the Iraqi leadership had no knowledge of it because they were blind & deaf from the outset. It wasn't until after the war until they realized the magnitude of their defeat.

Having said that, Schwarzkopf was still a great leader and a true patriot.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is
