Not a missile? Then it's either another accident, like the propane tank (odds: 10%) or a terrorist bomb (odds: 90%). Either way, it's probably going to be messy.

If it is terrorism, it's not going to deter the Kuwaitis one iota. They suffered far worse under Saddam's occupation. This is like a bus bombing in Israel--not even a hundred of them could break the Israelis' will, and not even a hundred of these bombs will break the will of the Kuwaitis or diminish their hatred for Saddam.

There's just some white smoke waifting across the city. Cause unknown. Wolf says it sounded like a thud.

Wolf just mentioned that if anyone was worried about him--he's ok.

No Wolf, not worried, stand a little closer next time...

chemicals

They would have the gas alarm on by now. This is a city on edge, and you can be sure they already have checked for gas.

Was it a dull thud, or a dull Wolf?

MSNBC crew have their gas masks on. Probably precautionary (their chemical paper at their Kuwait studios has not, repeat NOT, indicated chemicals).

Wolfie says he's ok.

If Wolf Blitzer was a real reporter, he would have jumped into a car and raced to the scene. Newsmen used to do that sort of thing.

Now they stand on the roof and talk to retired generals.

A chemical attack on Kuwait is the best way to ensure that Baghdad is uninhabitable for a couple of hundred centuries....

Blitzer says it looks like it was the first successful Iraqi missile to hit downtown Kuwait.

Nuts.

OK - Wolfie, Brian and all the rest have their gas masks. Why the hell don't they play "Journalist" for a change, get in a damn car and go play field reporter??

Hollywood Journalism at it's best.
