after being “abandoned” by their commanders. [....] “We had no orders, and didn’t know what to do, so we went,” he said.

Well hell son, what would you have done if your Commanders had been killed? What kind of soldier are you? You need a Commander to instruct you to defend your city, your poeple?

Yes, they do. Islamic military forces have often confounded Western military instructors by sabotaging efforts to train the lower ranks to perform the combat duties of any senior ranks. Officers typically will hide the training manuals to force the non-commissioned officers to rely upon the officer for even the most trivial details in the technical manuals for maintain weapons systems. the officers do this to hold and exercise power and prestige over the lower ranks. Efforts by Western instructors to bypass the officer causes the officer to lose face, so the officer becomes even more hostile and uncooperative with the Western instructors. All too often the Islamic officer neglects the lower ranks and leaves the unit to socialize with the higher ranking officers and win favor with the senior ranks, leaving the subordinate ranks incapable of performing their duties in the absence of the officer holding all of the information and authority necessary to accomplish their tasks.

When the unit is engaged in combat, the officer abandons the unit and fless, leaving the subordinates without the officer’s authority to do whatever needs to be done and without the ability to risk the wrath of any senior officers they may attempt to contact for orders. This leads to the disintegration of a unit when their officers abandon the unit or become casualties.
