The frequency with which our military equipment is falling apart in Saudi Arabia and the increasing number of accidents give Saddam Hussein much hope. In a year's time, the mighty American military machine will have gradually self-destructed because of hasty design and workmanship. No need for gas and germ wars. The greed and corruption of American military contractors are doing the job for him.
Now, if we can only get Hussein interested in buying the stuff, then we'll know for sure that his bark is worse than his bite. His arsenal would look impressive and intimidating, but the model glue holding the parts together will melt minutes after the engines are fired up.
