SUBJ:          IRAQ'S
INTENTION TO USE CHEMICAL WEAPONS AGAINST ISRAEL AND
TO DESTROY SAUDI OIL FIELDS IN THE EVENT OF WAR
DOI:          AUGUST 1990
IRAQI PRESIDENT ((SADDAM)) HUSAYN
HAS DECIDED THAT IF A WAR BREAKS OUT BETWEEN IRAQ AND WESTERN
FORCES POSITIONED IN THE GULF, IRAQ WILL IMMEDIATELY LAUNCH A
MASSIVE MISSILE ATTACK AGAINST ISRAEL AND WILL ALSO ATTACK
SAUDI OIL FIELDS IN THE EASTERN PROVINCE. THE MISSILES
INTENDED FOR ISRAEL WOULD BE EQUIPPED WITH CHEMICAL WARHEADS.
SADDAM IS CONVINCED THAT THE UNITED STATES
INTENDS TO PROVOKE A WAR WITH IRAQ AND THERE IS NOTHING SADDAM
CAN DO TO SAVE HIS REGIME. THEREFORE, WITH THIS SENSE OF DOOM,
SADDAM WANTS TO GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE ONLY ARAB LEADER WHO
INFLICTED MAJOR DESTRUCTION ON ISRAEL AND INTERRUPTED WESTERN
OIL SUPPLIES.
