Iraqi Officers Refuse to Return

Iraqi Officers Refuse to Return

Alquds, via Iraqi League

December 25, 2006

Officers in the former Iraqi armed forces have said that they have no trust the government of AlMaliki’s call to join the new armed forces in Iraq because they don’t believe they can work for a government that commands its armed forces by sectarianism. They went on to say that the current government in Iraq is not only sectarian in its nature, but also actively involved in the liquidation of the military and scientific high-calibre cadre which was thriving in Iraqi before the invasion. The common consensus amongst former officers is that if this government was serious about the return of the former Iraqi army, then it must stop immediately all the cold-blooded murder of their former colleagues and take on a nationalist direction as opposed to the narrow minded racist/sectarian policies of terror against the people of Iraq.

A former Iraqi brigadier Hamid told the London AlQuds that "the invitation to join the new army came after three years and a half of bitter occupation during which many former officers and higher rankings were murdered in cold blood along with members of Iraq’s scientific community". He went on to ask "how could I even contemplate going to the current defence ministry in Iraq and give my name and address? Am I that mad? This government is directly responsible for the mass murder and liquidation of hundreds of fellow officers who served Iraq whole heartedly along nationalist and not sectarian lines. There is no doubt that the top figures in this government are themselves directly responsible for these crimes: they gave political cover; and pushed and directed the militias to kill my former colleagues in a systematic manner. Death lists are issued regularly by the government containing the names of the former officers who will be killed. We have information which confirms that tens of the officers who went back during Alawi’s government were killed by the militias loyal to the AlJafari and the government’s own security services. There is no doubt that AlMaliki now wants liquidate the remaining former officers’.

Other groups of former officers see AlMaliki’s invitation to rejoin came not because of a genuine desire by his government for their return, but rather because of pressure from the Americans in order to reduce the daily losses of approximate 5 dead, currently being paid by the US in Iraq.

Another former general Alta’ee said 'the invitation to return appears to have certain benefits. But I cannot trust this sectarian/fascist regime and its security apparatus, which means I cannot risk being killed after joining them’. He believes that the US government along with the Iraqi government and its armed forces are all responsible for the mass killing, but currently is trying to adopt a policy which will allow the US government and its regime for Iraq to be relieved from duty and spare the daily losses incurred. He went on to say 'we are not against serving our country or its people. Because of our vast experience, we know how to bring security to our Iraqi people. The question is will this government accept what we want to do to bring security back? Will they accept the reform of the security apparatus that we will have to implement in order to divorce Iraq’s security from sectarianism? I don’t think that this government wants us to change the sectarian direction it has assumed since its delivery by the occupation. There is no doubt that all this government wants to be able to say is that they had taken back the former officers. If this government wanted security then they would have put the ministries of defence and internal affairs in the hands of the former officers who have had several years caring for Iraq’s security. Instead, they chose the criminal blood-thirsty militias".

Other former officers see that the current army is useless and can never be a nationalist pillar upon which an Iraqi government can depend to stop the violence. Another former general called Abu Osamma says 'it is an illegitimate army who does not know about the nationalist military and its principles beyond the cheap uniforms they wear. They are a bunch of armed sectarian gangs which are controlled from outside the military establishment to which they are supposed to be affiliated. The top of their chain of command lies in the hands of sectarian religious leaders and hands of political parties, all of whom take orders from foreign secret services and governments all of which detest Iraqi nationalism and the people of Iraq. We reject working for such military organisation. The old Iraqi army should be reconstituted in its original form in order for it to be acceptable to the former officers, and only then the former officers may choose to return’.

Many other former officers reject at point blank to return to military service on principles. They believe that their return is an indirect recognition of the occupation and its continued presence in their homeland. Brigadier Taha AlJiboori says "How can we be part of an armed forces used by the occupation as a form of human shield? This is a great insult to the intelligence of the military officers who had spent years perfecting their profession. AlMaliki and his government are an integral part of an American political project, and the military establishment they want to construct is part of that agenda. We refuse to be part of an American agenda".

Other former officers formed their own private armies and see that the AlMalki’s call to return is too late, says former officer Abu Obaida who joined the resistance after about two months from the end of the invasion and the start of the occupation. He says 'they [the occupation and government in Iraq] know that many former officers are working with the Iraqi resistance. This resistance has made its military presence felt in Iraq and has succeeded in changing the invaders’ calculations. What the government is trying to do is to pull as many former officers from the resistance and throw them in their sectarian army. They will undoubtedly make it very lucrative for the former officers to return, but what they don’t know is that those officers are nationalist at heart and such people will not think about joining the likes of the military establishment AlMaliki wants. Those officers were driven to the resistance because of their nationalist principles; there is no way they will want to work with their occupation and the agents of the occupation".
