Saddam's Soldiers Invited Back

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has asked for former members of Saddam Hussein's disbanded army to join Iraq's new security forces, in an effort to stabilise the country.

The former U.S. administrator in Iraq, Paul Bremer, idiotically and against advice from the UK dissolved the Iraqi army after Saddam's government fell.

Needless to say, many of the unemployed troops joined the insurgency.

Whether this eleventh hour appeal from the Prime Minister of Iraq is enough to save the country from all out civil war, remains to be seen.
