Saddam Hussein believes the United States will have to seek his help to quell the bloody insurgency in Iraq and open the way for U.S. forces to withdraw, his chief lawyer said Sunday.

Khalil al-Dulaimi argued in an interview with The Associated Press that the former leader is the key to returning stability to Iraq.

"He's their last resort. They're going to knock at his door eventually," the lawyer said. Saddam is "the only person who can stop the resistance against the U.S. troops."

Well, the old mass murderer knew how to keep a lid on the tinder box between the fractions and how to keep his borders secure so he wasn't all that bad (nazis built good roads too)!

Sooner he's sitting at the right hand of the devil South Park stylie the better!

One of the few blokes who could keep a lid on the tensions between the factions (or at least do a good job of hiding them), not sure I agree with his methods though...

Stability is about knowing the consequences of actions. With Saddam in power, the Iraqis knew where they stood and could act accordingly.

With Coalition troops occupying Iraq and a fledgling Iraqi government under attack from all sides, there seems little understanding of who is in control and how long that control will last. As a result, somebody who is your ally today could be your enemy tomorrow.

While my opinion isn't going to be popular, I'd say get Saddam back in power (after first signing an undertaking not to demand reparations).

Hi!

Previously Saddam was supported by USA in his war with Iran. Maybe his regime was not a cruel dictatorship that time? Now Iran is becoming a threat (real or imaginary) again. So if not Saddam himself but a strongman, a new 'Saddam' (sunni and former general) would be very helpfull.

With American financial resources, sunni-led Iraqi army could be built within few months. Unlikely the insurgents (mainly sunnis) would fight against it. The army would be strongly anti-Iranian. By contrast current shia 'allies' are highly unreliable and a majority are hidden pro-Iranian insurgents.

Previously the USSR was supported by the USA and look what happened there too!
