Will Collier is a regular here, and a guy whose brain I’d like to pick for classified information — he works for LockMart Ops Support on the F-22. Anyway, Will forwards this story from the Washington Post:
Saddam Hussein has opened a training camp for Arab volunteers willing to carry out suicide bombings against U.S. forces in case they invade Iraq, Arab media and Iraqi dissidents said Tuesday.
The dissidents, speaking by telephone from Jordan, said scores of Arab volunteers have gone to a special camp run by the Iraqi intelligence service near the town of al-Khalis, 40 miles northeast of Baghdad.
Most of the volunteers are Islamic activists who belong to pan-Arab groups that maintain close ties with Saddam’s regime, the dissidents said on condition of anonymity.
Nope, no Iraq/Terror connection here. And if there were any, it’s all our fault for making them do it.
I think a four-ship of F-16s with JDAMs could probably help these guys achieve ‘martyrdom’ in pretty short order. Seems only fair to send them off to collect their 72 white raisins as soon as possible. Nice of Saddam to
let us know where to find them…
Yep. Now all our guys need is the go-ahead order. Soon? Please?
