ABSTRACT
The article discusses the role played by former President of Iraq Saddam Hussein in the ongoing violence in Iraq. The peace-keeping and nation-building process after the Iraq war are being disturbed due to increase in hit-and-run attacks. These attacks have hurt people or institutions whose work normalizes the situation in the country. It is viewed that these attacks are done by supporters of Saddam Hussein.
