quote:If Iraqi forces do indeed fail to resist with vigour, and begin collapsing, the U.S. may be unable to deploy many new high-tech shock weapons it planned to use in the war. Iraq was to have been the test lab for many new, 21st century military technologies. The Pentagon will be disappointed, but there's always Iran or Syria, both of which are being named next priority targets by the group of Bush administration hard-liners linked with Israel's right-wing Likud party. PM Ariel Sharon of Israel recently called on the U.S. to "march on Tehran" the day after Baghdad is occupied.
