Personally, I think they will launch whatever scuds/other missles they have at US forces in Kuwait, and Israel with whatever VX they have available.
This will certainly illicit an Israeli response, which will only further rile the rest of the arab world. It will of course illicit the US response,
which will be to mow down all Iraqi forces on the way to Baghdad.
When we get to Baghdad, I expect that we will find very flimsy defense, and penetrate deep into the city fairly easily. Once we are committed deeply
into the urban landscape of Baghdad, that is when I would expect the best trained and equipped Republican Guards to show themselves and engage US
forces much more fiercly than we have ever seen, mainly because the close proximity and the enemies previous knowledge of the landscape will negate
whatever technological advantages we have.
The Republican Guard will likely engage US forces so close as to make effective air support impossible for fear of hitting our own troops. Once the
spearhead is engaged and temporarily immobilized, they will call for reinforcements, which will arrive and balloon US presence within the city within
48 hours of initial engagement. As our presence expands, and are stalled in street fighting, that is likely when Saddam will let loose with whatever
chem/bio/nuclear weapons he has, in an attempt to kill as many US/Iraqi civilians as possible.
