(War)ships of the Desert

A recent report has revealed one of Saddam Hussein’s secret weapons: Suicide camels.

According to a report of the Sunday Telegraph, Iraq’s former leader Saddam Hussein had planned to use “camels of mass destruction” as defense against invading western occupation forces, reported Ynet.

The camels, the reports said, would be fitted with explosives devices to attack unsuspecting enemy forces.
 
A detailed 37-page document revealed that shortly before the American invasion of Iraq in 2003, Saddam planned the explosive camel project in preparation for the imminent war.

The memo, which was reportedly discovered at the beginning of the American invasion, was only recently revealed to the public.

The document was reportedly published recently by the US Pentagon on its website in handwritten Arabic, in the hopes of finding translators who spoke the native Iraqi dialect in which it was written.

The document details a program of resistance, in which one phase will include “activating body explosives, with the aid of motorcycles, cars, and camels”.

Camels “will be supplied by the general intelligence,” the document said.

Color me unimpressed. That is so unoriginal.
