Bring back the Ba'athists 

Ok, for months now the government and military establishment have been telling us that we are fighting diehard former Ba'athists in Iraq. I never believed there was much truth to that (after all, if that were the case the fighting should have died down after the killing of Saddam's sons and Saddams capture but it didn't). But now we have very clear evidence that even the U.S. is clear that they Ba'athists are not what is behind this insurgency.

In an article in yesterday's New York Times the U.S. stated that it was intending to bring back former officers from the Iraqi army and other Ba'athists. Appearently their technical skills and leadership abilities are sorely needed by the U.S. puppet regime in Iraq.
