#1 It is amazing how detached from reality people become when they live in an echo chamber. Even with the full war plan on display on CNN 24/7 these turkeys lied themselves into believing it was all the evil Joooos. The Persians will prove to have even greater cognitive dissonance. The problem is trying to figure out what wacko reality they are living in.

Rationality through Superior Firepower.

#2 "Saddam was concerned about internal unrest amongst the tribes" Smart guy.

#3 That strategy led to mutual misperception
Teheran might want to think about this.

#4 Saddam had WMDS - the only thing this article says is that even his own Army, Party, and or Loyalists were "expendable", "collateral casualties/sacrifices" to Saddam iff it meant only HE controlled the WMDS. The new SADDAM TAPES make it clear that pre-planned asymmetric warfare , as coupled with anti-American international diplomacy and politics even from within America itself, was always the primary or preferred method of resisting the USA and its Allies. DITTO FOR IRAN, SYRIA, NORKOR, NK-TAIWAN, etal.

#5 JosephMendiola, if the report says that Saddam said that he didn't, that's what goes on the record, not "Saddam had WMDS." You fail.

On a more on-topic note, I'm sweatdropping at the details (on Saddam's end) of his "command" during the Major Combat Operations (MCO) campaign...
