Meet the new boss...
    #1453993 - 04/13/03 02:17 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Looks like "liberation" lasted precisely one week.

Baath Party members who were loyal to Saddam Hussein will take part in the reconstruction of Iraq, according to Geoff Hoon.

"They had a system of administration that will deliver," the defence secretary told The Observer.

And many were "perfectly decent people who have not participated in any atrocities".

There has already been anger in the southern city of Basra after the man chosen by the British forces there to run the city was revealed to be a Baath Party member.

They should put Saddam back to power when they find him. He would be very good in calming down people while foreign corporations pump their oil. :grin:

Patton wanted to include NAZIs in the reconstruction of Germany. He argued that you had to be a NAZI party member to work at the post office and was only a formality, not really proof of supporting Hitler and his ideals. Sounds like a similar argument underway now with the Baath party supporters. Personally I was opposed to the war in the first place. I think we should immediatly leave Iraq and leave it to the Iraqis to sort out now that they're rid of Saddam.

Good point. Same thing in the USSR and other Warsaw Pact nations. If you weren't a Communist party member, good luck in getting any kind of civil service job.

The reality is that anyone who has the least knowledge of how to handle the functions of the various government departments in Iraq is almost certainly a Ba'ath party member, even if only in name.

There is no practical way to quickly get the country back on its feet without at least interim assistance from some Ba'ath party members in key positions.
