Russian president and former KGB chief Vladimir Putin has already warned that Chechen fighters,already masters at using shoulder launched Strela SA-7 missiles to bring down Russian military helicopters,may have weapons `comparable' with WMD`s. High civilian casualties caused by US-British bombing raids on Iraq could result in SA-7attcks on American and British civilian airlines similar to the Israeli jet in Mombasa.The Israelis,needless to say,have fitted their aircraft with anti-missile technology,but other airlines are defenceless. A desperate Saddam could be quietly smuggling dirty bombs as a last fling,to stop Bush grabbing the oilfields.Usama bin Laden has proclaimed Pan Islamic struggle ( Jihad). If Saddam torches the oilfields and turns them into a radioactive ash tray, it will be an expensive war for the Pentagon.
