General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries (GMCIR)

The General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries (al-Majlis al-‘Askari al-‘Āmm li-Thuwwār al-‘Irāq) abbreviated as GMCIR or MCIR, is a Ba'athist militant group active in Iraq headed by Saddam Hussein-era military and political leaders. It has been described by Al Jazeera as "one of the main groups" in the current Iraqi insurgency.

The Council began its insurgency against the Iraqi government in January 2014 as a unifying command for the former Sunni Arab Spring protestors that Nouri al-Maliki's government had cracked down upon since 2012. The MCIR has stated that it has a central command and "the footprints of a professional army", that it follows the Geneva Convention protocol rules, as well as claiming to be non-sectarian and seeking a "democratic solution" to the Iraqi crisis.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace characterized the MCIR as an Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party – Iraq Region front group.
