The bigger question for each of us, personally, is what will Saddam do if he does it?
His sons have already threatened to nuke Israel if anything happens to dad.
I prefer to know sooner than later.
Face it. We're in a "damned if we do, damned if we don't."
I think we Americans have no clue how any of the people in that part of the world think--if they do. They hate each other; all hate us more. That's the biggest problem. I read that 70% are illiterate. They only know what they're told; and they don't have a clue what's going on at home much less in the world.
It ain't a pretty picture!
I don't think it will ever be "over."
