During an interview with CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz says that Iraq will attack Kuwait if US attacks. Aziz says that Iraq is unlikely to attack continental US.
Iraq has threaten that US will suffer bigger losses than September 11 if Iraq strikes back. Aziz says that Iraq has no ability and is unlikely to do so.
But Aziz claims if US forces enters from Kuwait, the country will not rule out any possibilities to strike in Kuwait.
Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990. Aziz claims Kuwait is the "war ground", US troops are now gathering at Kuwait, preparing to attack Iraq. Iraq will strike any places where US troops comes from as "self-defence".

Iraq has neither the capable armour, air power or offensive weaponry to make anything but a suicide run at the wall of superior firepower gathering in the Kuwait desert near the Iraqi border. Aziz has been getting his lines from whatever bush league rhetoric manual Saddam got 'Mother of all Battles' from.
Howver, Scud missle attacks into US military staging areas in Kuwait is a real possibility. If the tips of those missles contain sarin or VH nerve gas, or worse, botulinium, it could get ugly.
The military insists it has revised technology and tactics to find and neutralize Scud launching sites faster and more efficiently than Gulf War I. we'll see.

Heelllooooo!!! Have you looked at your home heating bill, electric bill, and car fuel bills lately? Oil prices rise disproportionately to actual threat of disruption. Even if your part of the world doesn't by a drop from the middle east, the price of Venezualan and Aslaskan crude will rise if ME sources are threatened. And thanks to people against nuclear power, most of the world's power still comes from fossil fuel power plants.
