2nd Squadron (Iraq)

The 2nd Squadron, Iraqi Air Force was a helicopter squadron. It was first established in 1961 flying Mil Mi-4 Rasheed Air Base, it was still operating from Rasheed in 1964 with Westland Wessexs. After the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the squadron was reestablished under U. S. suffered severe spares shortages. "The mission failure at Taji should have come as no surprise, if only because it happened in slow motion and in full view. Its immediate cause was a lack of spares, but that shortage was only the latest in a lengthy series of neglects. In a detailed end-of-tour analysis submitted in late June, departing 6th SOS advisor Major William Denehan pulled no punches, he wrote, “IqAF 2nd Squadron is non-functional.... Aircraft acquisition was poorly managed and unsupported... overall IqAF development has been neglected and poorly managed”. The planned remedy was to refurbish the helicopters in the United States to Huey II standard. "A year after a number of Huey IIs were delivered to an Alabama-based contractor, the first shipment of five rebuilt helicopters returned to Iraq on 16 February.

Following several days’ reassembly and flight testing at NAMAB, they were turned over to Squadron 2 at Taji. Over the next few months, several were flown back to NAMAB, Phoenix Base, Baghdad’s Green Zone to take Iraqi defense officials aloft for the benefit of the press. Otherwise, the Hueys were used to train Iraqi airmen. Although the rebuilt aircraft had been factory equipped with protective armor, they remained within Taji’s airspace for the first several months; this restriction was not imposed from an excess of caution: between 20 January and 3 March, Iraqi insurgents had shot down or damaged eight US helicopters.65 As a result, it was not until 10 April that two Iraqi pilots made Squadron 2’s first flights outside Taji’s perimeter. Those sorties included. Five more aircraft arrived at NAMAB on 2 May, the final six were airlifted in from the United States on 29 July, by which time Squadron 2 had accumulated about 1,300 flying hours in training missions, passenger movement, infrastructure protection and assessment."The squadron wa listed by D.

Yenisei Kyrgyz Khaganate

Yenisei Kyrgyz Khaganate was a Turkic empire that existed for about a century between the early 9th and 10th centuries, around the start of the Borjigin Mongol dynasty. It ruled over the Yenisei Kyrgyz people, located in South Siberia and Central Asia since the 6th century. By the 9th century, the Kyrgyz had asserted dominance over the Uyghurs who had ruled; the empire was established as a Khaganate from 840–1207. The Khaganate's territory is now part of Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Mongolia; the earliest records of Yenisei Kyrgyz Khaganate were written during the Tang Dynasty. The Kyrgyz did not keep reliable written records during this period. In 50 BC, Xiongnu leader Zhizhi Chanyu defeated the Dinglings in the north of China, he conquered the Gyangun country located 7,000 li west of Ordos – the center of his country. During those times, Kyrgyz people lived in the Borohoro Mountains and the Manas River valley on east Tengir-Too; as a result, in Chinese historiography, Kyrgyz Khaganate is assigned the misnomer Gyegyesy.

They were subordinate to Turkic Khaganate from 560s to 700s. Kyrgyz khagan Bars Bek was a brother-in-law to Bilge Khagan, his son ruled Kyrgyzs after Bars Bek's defeated in hands of Qapaghan in 710. After Turkic downfall, they submitted to Uyghurs, their leader Bayanchur killed the Kyrgyz leader and appointed a new Kyrgyz khagan named Bilge Tong Erkin. First embassy to Yenisei Kyrgyz was sent during reign of Taizong, in 632, he received Kyrgyz ambassador named Shiboqu Azhan, appointed to the Yanran Commandery. The Kyrgyz khagans claimed descent from the Chinese general Li Ling, grandson of the famous Han Dynasty general Li Guang. Li Ling was captured by the Xiongnu and defected in the first century BCE, and since the Tang royal Li family claimed descent from Li Guang, the Kirghiz Khagan was therefore recognized as a member of the Tang Imperial family. This relationship soothed the relationship when Kyrgyz khagan Are invaded Uyghur Khaganate and put Qasar Qaghan to the sword; the news brought to Chang'an by Kyrgyz ambassador Zhuwu Hesu.

In 845, Are khagan was created Zhong Yingxiong Wu Chengming Khagan by Emperor Wuzong. But Wuzong died before his ambassadors departing Chang'an; the new emperor Xuanzong did not rush to create him khagan. At a general council of senior officials, they decided that the titles were given to the Uyghurs when they were strong, if the Yenisei Kyrgyz were awarded as well, they would become proud and become dangerous; the emperor revoked the letter. After Are's murder by one of his officials in 847, new Kyrgyz Khagan was created Yingwu Chengming Khagan by Xuanzong, who sent Li Ye to award him the title. Not much is known on downfall of Yenisei Kyrgyz, but according to Drompp, they were not invaded by Liao Dynasty, because Kyrgyz did not occupy Mongolian Plateau at the first place, they had conflicts with Kara-Khitai as well and submitted to Genghis Khan by 1207/8
