    US/British media is careful about reporting it but worldwide media report bombing outside the no-fly zone near US troops, air force may be opening the path for the ground invasion.

    So far only found reports in italian and brazilian media, if you care to translate this one: http://ultimosegundo.ig.com.br/useg/

    Shivers....

    What I read was that aircraft bombed Iraqi artillery emplacements that would have been in range of US troops when they cross the border. A preparation for war, but it’s still a full moon and I would think that troops would be sent in in total darkness. But then again, I’m not a general, I just play one on TV.

    Possible Use Of ICBMs Against Iraq

    The attack on Iraq may begin with the firing of 5-10 conventionally-armed Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles from the US mainland on Saddam Hussein "strongholds" in and around Baghdad and perhaps Tikrit.

    I guess that would definately "Shock and Awe" anybody

    I heard they were going to leave at least one nuke warhead on each. A great way to teach those Iraqi civilians to follow a creep like Saddam...

    buy_online,

    Talk about being insensitive...

    Ok let me get this straight, you want to take down the Iraqui civilians too not just Saddam?
    No wonder you people are so afraid of terrorist attacks, stop terrorising the world and they may just leave you alone.
    note: This is only directed at warmongers, you know who you are

    My god the INSANITY !!!

    As a side note: Remember how scared you were that the Ruskies were gonna nuke you? Well that's exactly how scared the world is from you (Bush administration and it's sheep).

    The use of a rediculously expensive weapon system (like the LGM's) is simply not going to happen.

    But thanks for throwing something at us other than raw emotion.

    I was being sarcastic, and hoping you would catch it and chastise me for it.

    For the record, I would like nothing better than to see zero Iraqis die in the upcoming conflict. Going further, we need to have the smoothest and least hurtful type of invasion, we need the trust of the Iraqi people - not to destroy them, blow them up, or run them over.

    The United States doesn't terrorize the world. I'm starting to wonder if you aren't Bin Laden or something..

    Heyder,

    If the threat of World War III and the total disregard to the UN is not terrorising then I don't know what is.

    And by the way if you add up all the military budgets of all 180 or so countries of the world it wouldn't even equal the budget of the US military. Why do you guys need so much protection anyway?

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I almost lost it when I read your post. I am really angry about this war but I sure hoepe that I am wrong because If I am not a lot if inocent people are going to die in vain. I am eager to see what those US comandos that are going to secure the sites that alegedly store WMD are actually going to find them and not a backery or some abandoned school like it has been proven in the past.

    Ohh yea and that evil twin sure is scary. Keep him locked up and never let him venture over here.

    Yup, Bombers are on the way and the President will speak. Bagdad is just anti aircraft fire so far. Must be targeting outside of Bagdad right now
