I wish military action could of still been held back but it seems that its most remotely to happen. I personally don't like war. IN
fact I HATE IT
I think one of the reasons why I don't like it because of the story of my home country of Korea and its fate during the Korean War.
Yes War will solve alot of problems like removal of SadDAM, but it will stir up new problems and reinforce old grudges. I'm glad Canada is not taking part except to the aftermath recovery efforts.
Also I have heard on the news that damm Sad DAM may have purposely removed caps to some of his oil wells thus resulting in oil spilling in the desert.
I really hope that he doesnt pull another Fires of Kuwait. That would be very foolish of him to do such a thing to his own oil in his own country. Perhaps it may reinforce that fact that US forces are just there to steal his oil as some analysts have said.
Anyways, these next 36 hours will be critical for all involved coalition forces. Turkey may potentialy open up some bases to allow a northern front. Israel is already preparing with gas masks and drills. I'm not sure how Palestine's are doing in this situation as whether they too are preparing for the worst or perparing for victory.
US Naval forces are ever so close to the Iraqi coastline. Even if they are still a few hundred kms away they still have enough range to knock out Basra just like that.
Oh yes, and from what a US Military expert on the news had said; the main US armor and infantry divisions(Kuwait) With the Royal Marines MAY attempt a sweeping claw like assault by Aiming to the north then South of Basra just like the German Schieffen Plan in WW1. Goal here is to cut off Iraq's Southern city Links such as Shipping and communications.
