Iraq threatens suicide attacks...
Iraq will unleash thousands of suicide attackers against the United States if American troops invade, a senior Iraqi official was quoted Saturday as saying. Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan said in a German magazine interview that Iraq's ability to withstand U.S. military might was "unlimited" and that American ground troops would face tough resistance. "We have no long-range missiles or bomber squadrons, but we will deploy thousands of suicide attackers," Ramadan told the weekly Der Spiegel. "These are our new weapons, and they will be used not only in Iraq."
Sounds like a threat. I guess we'll have to hold all the POWs naked, to make sure they don't explode. Not a pleasant sight at all...
Other Arab countries would help defend Iraq in case of war, inflaming the entire Middle East, he said. "This part of the world will become a sea of resistance and danger for the Americans."
What happens will help determine who's the next target.
