SUMMARY:    SADDAM INTENDS TO USE A WEAPON CAPABLE OF MASS

TION AGAINST ISRAEL. BIOLOGICAL OR CHEMICAL WARHEADS MAY BE USED 
BY

LOYAL SUPPORTERS OF SADDAM.
TEXT: (U).
1.    CHEMICAL WEAPONS DELIVERY CAPABILITY. DURING THEIR SPECIAL
TRAINING, TROOPS WERE TOLD BY INSTRUCTORS THAT CHEMICALS COULD BE
PLACED IN THE WARHEADS OF SCUD MISSILES. SADDAM POSSESSES A WEAPON
HE SAYS IS CAPABLE OF MASS DESTRUCTION. CONTROL OF THE DEVICE
REMAINS AT CORPS LEVEL. SADDAM IS INTENT ON USING IT TO DESTROY 
HALF OF ISRAEL AND STATES THAT THE GAS MASK PROVIDES NO PROTECTION 
AGAINST THE CHEMICAL THAT WILL BE USED. INSTRUCTORS REFER TO A 
BIOLOGICAL WEAPON BEING AVAILABLE TO IRAQ. THE WEAPON WAS FORMERLY 
YIELDED AGAINST THE KURDS, LAUNCHED FROM NORTHERN IRAQ DURING THE 
IRAN-IRAQ WAR AND REFERRED TO AS "THE PRIVATE WEAPON". 
ADDITIONALLY, CHEMICALS MAY BE DELIVERED BY MEANS OF THE 130 MM 
MEDIUM ARTILLERY CANON, THE 155 MM ARTILLERY CANON AND THE RPG-7.
1B.     WHEN CHEMICALS WILL BE USED AGAINST ALLIED FORCES. THE
OPTIMUM TIME FOR A CHEMICAL ATTACK WILL BE AT THE ONSET OF THE 
GROUND OFFENSIVE, OR AFTER ALLIED TROOPS MOVE BEYOND THE IRAQI 
DEFENSIVE HQ, UNAWARE OF THE PERSONNEL THEY LEAVE BEHIND. IT IS 
ANTICIPATED THAT LOST IRAQI PERSONNEL WILL NOT BE SOUGHT AFTER.
