> The Third US Army consists of nine divisions; 75

> at least seven countries involved in the war against

> Bahrein, Jordan, Israel, Germany, Lebanon, and

> The third strike stipulates for the participation of
> the elite infantry troops and the commandos of the
> USA, Israel, and Jordan. They will destroy the large
> concentration of the Iraqi troops, the planes on the
> vast territory in the central and northern parts of
> Iraq.
> The special units of the allied countries are
> supposed to attack and then leave the hotspot,
> without the lingering battles. As Debka reported,
> that tactics was caused by the latest information of
> the American intelligence, which said that Saddam
> Hussein carefully analyzed the war in the Persian
> Gulf of 1991 and the current war in Afghanistan. He
> ordered to divide the most effective military groups
> into the small ones, dispersing them all over Iraq.
> The numerous food depots have already been prepared
> for those groups. The Americans have the
> information, which says that the units of the Iraqi
> republican army have the new light laser weapon,
> which is meant for blinding and burning the human
> skin. The Iraqi soldiers are going to use that
> weapon against the American pilots of the low-flying
> aircraft, since Saddam perfectly realizes that the

> used such weapon before - in the war with Iran. The
> Iraqi army also has the chemical weapon, the
> Americans do not know the exact nature and scope of
> it. Iraq is ready for that war, and this makes the
> Americans delay its beginning.
> The Pentagon decided to begin the operation in the
> north of Iraq, because there was a large underground
> complex located there - almost like a town for the
> Iraqi administration. The underground town was
> originally meant for storing the bombs and
> explosives, but then Saddam ordered to build
> tunnels, roads, living quarters, army headquarters
> there. The entire complex is meant for the
> government of Iraq in case of the attack against the
> country.
> The Americans are going to use bombs and missiles
> against that underground town - the same, which were
