InstaPundit pointed us to this account in The Guardian:
“Saddam Hussein was last night reported to have placed his defence minister and close relative under house arrest in an extraordinary move apparently designed to prevent a coup.
“Reports of the general’s arrest came amid signs of growing apprehension in Baghdad that the Iraqi army, including the elite Republican Guard, might desert in the event of an attack on Iraq.”
If we could ever leave the U.N. and the E.U. in the dust and commence hostilities, they wouldn’t last long.
