They need new architects when we rebuild.

Hi Dread, I remember when we got into this discussion a few weeks ago... about my hesitency of using the 'shock-and-awe' vs. a focused tactical extraction strategies.

You brought up many good points about the possibility of needing a full-scale war in regards to troops loyal to Saddam. It looks like you and me both hope to God it won't come to that. I don't think it will be necessary, but we'll see I guess. They will have a tough time, because Saddam has deployed about a dozen 'body-doubles' that look, sound, and act like him.

Let us hope our special forces are successful. Our troops need our support right now, no matter how each of us feels about the war.

peace

Indeed it would. Seems unlikely, but who knows. Impressive intelligence either way.

And with the raid on Al Qaeda in Afghanistan now...Saddam & Osama in the same night? Nah, couldn't be.

Hey, maybe we should wipe out that North Korean nuke site while no one's watching.

Really? Can't believe I missed that, but I'll take your word for it. Seems like a pretty good reason to break up their party.

As for Saddam addressing his people, we'll see. Could just be propaganda on their end or he may have survived the attack. We'll just have to wait to see if he shows up in front of a camera (perhaps that could lead to further intel on his current locale).

What I'm interested in is seeing if Saddam shows up with sunglasses on and two young, lame white guys under each arm.

ya, theres no way hes dead. its not like he didnt have time to build a few half decent bunkers.

how is saddam supposed to say anything to anyone when his radio is cut out?

i have a feeling his words will be extremely graphic.

This is scary. I have thought about what would happen whent he war started and i pray that it ends quick but something tells me that the US is going to see some dark days ahead. Al Quada looks poised to attack right when it will hurt the most.

I am at a loss for words too much info from too many people. Please let this be a bloodless war for civilaians!!

God bless.
