BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A senior Iraqi legislator predicted Monday that the United States will "incur casualties beyond their imagination" if an
invasion is launched to topple Saddam Hussein.
Iraqi parliament speaker Saadoun Hammadi told a group of legislators from the European Parliament that Iraq "will not turn the other cheek" should
the United States use force to make Saddam's regime give up banned weapons programs.
"American aggression will end up in a catastrophe for them," Hammadi said. "They will incur casualties beyond their imagination."
