    cdw Ahhhh...the good life.

    Geez. Do we have to wait that long? I mean, if we are gonna do it, then let's go already. All this talking, hemming and hawing.
    I'd like for the economy back on track for god's sakes. All this talk, talk, talk. Do it already.

    I think you should be shot for treason. I cannot believe you looked at secret Pentagon plans at Yahoo and posted a link on a public forum where Saddam may very well have an account. Worse still, you posted the attack date in the subject line, instead of "Attack plans, Saddam please don't read" as per Pentagon protocol.

    I bet you're the same one that spilled the beans about the ships massing in the Gulf.

    You know, wait a minute...this can't be right.

    Neither the 101st or 82nd Airborne Divisions have gotten deployment orders, and they're the primary aviation element in any US attack. Both divisions don't have to go, but one most certainly would...probably the 101st, since they have like 9 battalions in the Aviation Brigade alone. And it would take them at least a month to deploy, and then a couple of weeks in-country setting up.

    I think this is a bit more disinformation, unless the US is gonna try and hit the deck with fewer troops then advertised.

    The thought of 800 inbound cruise missiles should up the pucker factor significantly. Those Iraqi generals have to wondering about their career choice when they see that.

    Coot, you do have a way of making an understatement. I read that and an image of the bombardment of the Normandy beached flashed into my mind. A bit of an unfair comparison, perhaps but the modern equivalent I think.

    Saadam, like most bullies, is great at picking on the weak or those who are of comparable strength. He is now up against the first string and he is in for a very big surprise. I do not think he learned much from 1991 and only believes what he wants to, disregarding offending views.
