This chapter deals with the reorganization and rehabilitation of the Iraqi Armed Forces after the Gulf war in 1991, restoring them to a reasonable operational force after the withdrawal from Kuwait. It describes the problems that faced the Iraqis after the war, in their efforts to rehabilitate military capabilities. It describes the steps taken by the Iraqis in rehabilitating the army—the reduction in the order of battle of the ground forces, the manpower system, The training system, the infrastructures, repairing weapons and equipment and the changes in the air force resulting from the war. This process shows the decline of the Iraqi armed forces up to 2003. It describes also the changes in the high command between the wars (1991-2003).

Keywords:   Rehabilitation of the armed forces, The “regular” army, The Republican Guard, The Air Force, The high command, The manpower system, The training system, Repairing infrastructures, Weapon and equipment repair
