    Report: US Gulf Deployment Sufficient for Iraq Attack by January


    Senior U.S. military officials say the United States will have enough armor, troops, warships, aircraft, and munitions in the Persian Gulf region by the end of January to launch an attack against Iraq, if ordered to do so.

    The New York Times quotes senior defense officials as saying about 60,000 U.S. military personnel and 200 warplanes are now in or near the region. The officials also say the army currently has nine thousand soldiers, 24 Apache attack helicopters and enough heavy equipment for two armored brigades in Kuwait.

    Additionally, the report says four U.S. aircraft carriers are in the Gulf region, poised to strike Iraq on short notice. A fifth carrier now in southeast Asia could deploy to the Gulf on short notice.

    The report also says U.S. Special Operations troops are refining plans to hunt for Scud missiles and hidden weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

    About 1,000 U.S. military planners, led by General Tommy Franks, have assembled in Qatar and other Gulf states for a computer-simulated exercise set to begin Monday. The U.S. officials say the exercise is designed as a model for an offensive against Iraq.

    With the 12,000 pge document submitted, and Iraq faillling to declare WMD, I hope the US can covertly supply some info to the inspectors there where they can find a breach.

    The special OPs people may find them after the war starts, but it will NOT be believed by the Moslem World.

    At least it looks like we are prepared for the initial incursion.

    Techie2000 The crowd would sing:

    You know what's going to happen right?

    The US is going to wait for the inspectors to leave. Then once they're gone they will say, "You didn't find anything my butt. The Iraqis have their secret weapons hidden at XYZ." Then we send in our troops with guns blazing. They go to location XYZ, discover hidden weapons and say, "See we told you so." and then the rest of the world will go "If you knew they were there, then why didn't you tell the inspectors?" and then say "You planted them there to justify the war."
