    4. Eisenhower Doctrine<br />“President Eisenhower believed that, as a result of the Suez conflict, a power vacuum had formed in the Middle East due to the loss of prestige of Great Britain and France. Eisenhower feared that this had allowed Nasser to spread his pan-Arab policies and form dangerous alliances with Jordan and Syria, and had opened the Middle East to Soviet influence. Eisenhower wanted this vacuum filled by the United States before the Soviets could step in to fill the void. Because Eisenhower feared that radical nationalism would combine with international communism in the region and threaten Western interests, he was willing to commit to sending U.S. troops to the Middle East under certain circumstances.”----US department of state website<br />Nationalized by Eygpt<br />
    5. Published on Sunday, April 20, 2003 by Reuters <br />Ex-U.S. Official Says CIA Aided BaathistsCIA offers no comment on Iraq coup allegations <br />by David Morgan <br />  <br />PHILADELPHIA�If the United States succeeds in shepherding the creation of a post-war Iraqi government, a former National Security Council official says, it won&apos;t be the first time that Washington has played a primary role in changing that country&apos;s rulers. duringRoger Morris, a former State Department foreign service officer who was on the NSC staff during the Johnson and Nixon administrations, says the CIA had a hand in two coups in Iraq the darkest days of the Cold War, including a 1968 putsch that set Saddam Hussein firmly on the path to power.Morris says that in 1963, two years after the ill-fated U.S. attempt at overthrow in Cuba known as the Bay of Pigs, the CIA helped organize a bloody coup in Iraq that deposed the Soviet-leaning government of Gen. Abdel-Karim Kassem.&quot;This takes you down a longer, darker road in terms of American culpability ....&quot;As in Iran in &apos;53, it was mostly American money and even American involvement on the ground,&quot; says Morris, referring to a U.S.-backed coup that brought the return of the shah to neighbouring Iran. <br />Why would the US support <br />the Ba’ath regime?<br />
    6. Ba’ath Party<br />Major factions exist within Iraq and Syria <br />Goal to revive a Pan Arab movement<br />the motto of the Party is &quot;Unity, Freedom, Socialism&quot;<br />
    7. The book, A Brutal Friendship: The West and the Arab Elite (1997), sets out the details not only of how the CIA closely controlled the planning stages but also how it played a central role in the subsequent purge of suspected leftists after the coup.<br />The author reckons that 5,000 were killed, giving the names of 600 of them - including many doctors, lawyers, teachers and professors who formed Iraq&apos;s educated elite. The massacre was carried out on the basis of death lists provided by the CIA.<br />How west helped Saddam gain power and decimate the Iraqi elite<br />By Mohamoud A Shaikh<br />Saddam who &apos;had rushed back to Iraq from exile in Cairo to join the victors, was personally involved in the torture of leftists in the separate detention centres for fellaheen [peasants] and the Muthaqafeen or educated classes.&apos;<br />the Ba&apos;ath party leaders - in return for CIA support - agreed to &apos;undertake a cleansing programme to get rid of the communists and their leftist allies.&apos;<br />

    27. In March 2003, Hans Blix reported that, &quot;No evidence of proscribed activities have so far been found,&quot; in Iraq, saying that progress was made in inspections which would continue. He estimated the time remaining for disarmament being verified through inspections to be &quot;months&quot;.<br />
    28. Catch Me If You Can<br /> In the summer of 2003, the multinational forces focused on hunting down the remaining leaders of the former regime. On July 22, a raid by the US 101st Airborne Division and soldiers from Task Force 20 killed Hussein&apos;s sons (Uday and Qusay) along with one of his grandsons. In all, over 300 top leaders of the former regime were killed or captured, as well a numerous lesser functionaries and military personnel. <br />
    29. United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441 is a United Nations Security Council resolution adopted unanimously by the United Nations Security Council on November 8, 2002, offering Iraq under Saddam Hussein &quot;a final opportunity to comply with its disarmament obligations&quot; that had been set out in several previous resolutions <br />Resolution 1441 stated that Iraq was in material breach of the ceasefire terms presented under the terms of Resolution 687. Iraq&apos;s breaches related not only to weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), but also the known construction of prohibited types of missiles, the purchase and import of prohibited weapons and the continuing refusal of Iraq to compensate Kuwait for the widespread looting conducted by its troops during the 1991 invasion and occupation<br />
