Sandstorm


Conflicting reports from the Kuwait-Iraq frontline suggest that hostilities are going to commence within 24 hours as US troops move into the demilitarized zone in Kuwait. Not that hostilities haven't already been started weeks ago. The 'softening up' of the No Fly Zones have not solely targetted threats to US air power, but have targetted communications bunkers that would co-ordinate Iraqi ground forces, which is well outside the official mandate of what the US and UK said they would be used for. They simply have formalized hostilities yet.


Ironically, troop movements are being compromised by a sandstorm in the area that's reduced visibility down to a few metres. Perhaps someone upstairs is trying to tell them something?
