Saddam son warns Americans
Saddam Hussein's elder son on Friday warned the U.S. of an ignominious defeat should it attempt to invade Iraq.
In a broadcast on the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera satellite , Uday warned that "September 11 would be a picnic" compared to the "losses" expected if it committed "the grand stupidity" of invading Iraq. "They (the U.S.) would be paying a dear price they could never imagine," he said.
Uday was speaking in a rarely televised address at the Baghdad Iraqi press syndicate, of which he is the chairman.
"It is better for the Americans to keep themselves away from us," Uday was quoted as saying.
Uday said the Americans could get more gains from Iraq without war, saying that Washington would fail in its attempt to oust Saddam Hussein. "They can get much more from Iraq by dialogue without resorting to the logic of force and war," he said. (Albawaba.com)
