Jordan's King Abdullah II said in a Thursday interview on "Newsnight" aired on BBC, "I presume that if the Iraqis ask us for help directly, it would be very difficult for us to say no". Jordan would be the first Arab state to send troops to Iraq if this offer is pursued by the new Iraqi government.
 

Jordan Willing to Send Troops to Iraq

The statement marked a major shift in Jordan's policy toward Iraq. Abdullah had initially refused to send troops.

In an interview Thursday with the British Broadcasting Corp. television "Newsnight" program, Abdullah said he wanted to support Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's interim government, which recently assumed control from the U.S.-led coalition.

That would be good news. No doubt that Jordan is offering help to become a player in reconstruction and maybe have some influence in post war Iraq. However, the PR of having an Arab nation garrison troop to help keep the securrity in Iraq should not be ignored
