The statistical arrows are pointing up. The data clearly show that Iraqi security forces will soon be capable of defending their country with increasingly less support from the Coalition. By election time over 107 battalions of Iraqi Army and police will be in the field. Fully a third will be capable of operating with only minimal support from U.S. advisors. Equipment is pouring in to provide weapons, body armor, radios, and even enough tanks and armored personnel carriers to equip an armored division.
