Saddam Hussein's troops took a severe beating as forces from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United States drove them from the Saudi town of Khafji, the allied military command said Thursday, adding that a rumored second ground assault by Iraqi soldiers would only lead them "into harm's way in a major way." Army Lt. Gen. Thomas W. Kelly theorized that Hussein's ground attack on Khafji was an attempt "to draw us into something that we don't want to be drawn into right now."
