Iraqi National Forces Alliance
An alliance founded in 2002 among a number of Iraqi opposition groups, including the Iraqi Communist Party, the Al-Da'wah Party, and the Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party -- Iraq Command, with the intention of overthrowing the Hussein regime without outside intervention. Alliance was thus opposed to possible U.S. intervention in Iraq in the months leading up to Operation Iraqi Freedom and did not participate in the preparatory meetings of the Iraqi opposition.
Other groups that joined the alliance in June 2002 are: the Group of Mujahidin Ulama in Iraq; the Islamic Party of Iraq; the Iraqi Tribes (Shaykh Takleef Muhammad al-Munshid and Shaykh Talib Harbi al-Muz'il); the Turkoman Islamic Union; the Socialist Party in Iraq; the Iraqi Democratic Grouping; the Turkoman Democratic Party; the Assyrian National Organization; and the Arab Socialist Movement.
