O článku:
One of the landmarks in the history of modern Iraq is the coup or revolution of 17 ̶ 30 July 1968. At that time several political forces in Iraq were dissatisfied with the regime’s policy, as they felt that President cAbdarraḥmān cĀrif was a weak leader who had allowed things to drift waywards. The unfulfilled promises to establish a democratic and humane political system angered many Iraqis. A group of bacthist officers led by Brigadier Aḥmad Éasan al-Bakr (who had been Prime Minister of Iraq in the years 1963 ̶ 1964) decided to topple the regime. They returned to power by accomplishing two coups, one on 17 July and the other on 30 July 1968. In both instances, they prevailed by stratagem rather than through force. In the first instance they deposed the president by allying themselves with his closest aides. In the second the bacthists got rid of their inconvenient temporary allies. The victorious Socialist Party of Arab Resurrection (Ḥizb al-bacth al-arabī al-ishtirākī), commonly the Bacth Party, created a Revolutionary Command Council under the chairmanship of Aḥmad Éasan al-Bakr. The RCC assumed unlimited power in the country. Ṣaddām Ḥusayn at-Tikrītī became its Vice Chairman.
