"Iraqi Soldiers Fleeing ISIS Claim They Were 'Abandoned' by Senior Officers"
"Some of the 60,000 Iraqi soldiers who retreated as a much smaller force of Sunni militants overran Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul last week told VICE News that they fled after being 'abandoned' by their commanders. [....] 'We had no orders, and didn’t know what to do, so we went,' he said. 'There was no real fight. '"
An army of 60,000 trained and well equipped men routed totally by several thousand [??] insurgents armed with AK, PKM, RPG and technicals [a pick up truck with a heavy Soviet era machine gun mounted on it]? YES, it is true.
Retreat in an organized manner not shameful. Retreat in a disorganized manner shameful.
