Iraq’s Former Prime Minister Calls for Martial Law


Former Iraqi Prime Minister, Ayad Allawi has called for martial law to be declared in Iraq to help stem the flow of violence. Ayad Allawi is the first major Iraqi leader to suggest such draconian measures.

Allawi, in an interview with NBC News said “I think martial law is required” and added “I pray to God that we don't lose, because the other alternative is going to be the prevalence of extremism and terrorism.”

Just hours after his initial comments, 70 people were killed and an estimated 220 injured by car bombs at Tayaran Square, just several hundred yards away from the Green Zone in downtown Baghdad.

The US should have declared that the day after they nabbed Saddam. Instituted curfews, etc. Caught after dark or in restricted areas, do not pass "Go", but do go straight to Gitmo or Abu Grahib.
