Just gives us another example of how insane and demented he is. That wont cause too much problems though, our military is very advanced and will most likely be organized in their attacks. We'll know our allies from our foes, don't worry.

This is why I've never referred to him by any name other than "Sodamn Insane"...


...Back during the years that people have been accusing him of having homosexual relations, I used to point out that you can't trust a guy whose very *name* is the start of homosexuality...Just add the letter "y" to the end of his first name & pronounce it again: "Saddamy"

For one thing, observant people will realize that the disguised troops are not likely to be using American-official weapons...Although the possibility remains that Sodamn Insane will have been able to *acquire* enough of our weapons to outfit a small unit of troops.

However, unless he could also find a decent number of caucasian guys willing to wear those disguises, there will be a very high percentage of "bronze-skinned Americans" in those units...

like thomas said, they're arabs, and i dont know if you have an all arab outfit in the u.s.??!

I think it's more likely that they would be used if a street to street battle occurred, to create confusion amoungst the u.s troops, although thats unlikely to work as their kit would be obviously identifiable.

in the dark, smoke, and activity of close battle though....

Having lived in the middle east, I can tell you that some Arabs are as dark as blacks, and some are as light as caucasians. Not all wear mustaches (and if they did, they could shave). In uniform, and in photos, they could EASILY pass for American GIs...

The good news is, with this out in the open, it simply makes the idea not work...
Of course, it does kind of give a green light to American GIs brutalizing Iraqis, and claiming it was a farce...


Hopefully, that will not end up being the case...
