Ditto. I had three Iraqis rabbit on me when I escorted a delegation. From a human perspective, I understand completely.

When you get death threat after death threat after death threat from stone-cold Badr Corps killers, it's natural impulse. In my case, our Iraqis had done 2-3 years of very tough service and made all the right enemies. Unfortunately, these enemies were insanely well-connected within GOI. These were not young men. And they all had kids, who were used against them as leverage. In my case, our Iraqis put their butts on the line for quite a while. Leaving Iraq was the only way for them to survive.
