Egypt is sending more troops to Saudi Arabia, but it will be at least four months before the U.S.-led forces there are ready to fight a full-scale war with Iraq, according to Egyptian military sources. "A war against Iraq will not be easy," a source in the military intelligence establishment said. "We must be well prepared.
