Is history about to repeat itself in Iraq, in the form of “Iraqnamization?”

In 1969 President Nixon anounced a new military policy called Vietnamization, where the Vietnamese people were to be responsible for fighting their own war against the North Vietnamese, thus augmenting US forces.

After years in Iraq, the new American rules for the conflict in Iraq against ISIS,  is to send advisers to Iraq to assist the Iraq military, who are to fight the war for their country themselves. Again augmenting so US forces to not have to return.

Will history repeat itself?
