In Iraq, “On June 2 [2003], about 1,000 ex-soldiers gathered in Baghdad outside the gates of the CPA [Coalition Provisional Authority] headquarters to protest the army’s disbanding. …’There have been public statements by some former MOD [Ministry of Defense] members that they will resolve to suicide attacks if their grievances are not addressed,’ the memo said. ‘Other protesters have continued to state that they will organize armed units to fight against the CPA and occupation.’ ”
