How disappointing I thought Ron Paul had more sense than this.
And I had thought you did, but no longer.
I object, I don't believe you are thinking this thru. Saddam got his rear handed to him in 1991, he knows better than to invest in troops and equipment again, they got creamed. And we have spy satellites and he knows we can watch a military build up. So the fact that his army and military equipment is kaput has no bearing on anything. His entire thrust will be towards weapons of mass destruction now.
He will want a small mobile army that can deliver the goods, scuds, surface to air missiles, etc. It's what you would do if you were in his position and had not given up your ambitions. He learned from his mistakes, now he's taking another route. Or do you want to gamble that all those "palaces" hold is grandma's quilting b's?
