A delay in holding elections in Iraq would lead to a bloodbath, Iraq's former national security adviser Muwafaq al-Roubaie said on Tuesday. "If we delay it for a week or so, the country will go into bloodbath," he told BBC radio. "This will definitely trigger a huge civil war. The best insurance policy to protect this country from civil war is to have the election on January 30," he said. (AFP, via Tehran Times)
