In camels? Were they to blow up when the common soldiers had their way with said camels. (Projecting the behavior of Iraqi troops onto Coalition troops?).
I don't think you want to be around when explosives go off *inside* a camel.
Those don't appear to be suicide vests. They appear to be standard chest pouches for AK-47 magazines. Used, with variations, where ever the AK is found.
Just a friendly note since I am writing a column about these documents, including this one.
I also read it the way you did since it clearly says recommendation....there is no evidence this was ordered by Saddam or anybody in govt. It was a recommendation.
HOWEVER, at least some of it was carried out since another document on April 4 hands down an order directly from Saddam to treat these Arab fedayeen the same as Iraqi forces.
It is a big deal still.
