The Washington Post wonders if the string of recent attacks is a counterattack by Saddam Hussein. Apparently the coordination of the attacks leads some to think it might be.
It’s pretty sad, though, that if this is in fact his counterattack, we’re not actually sure whether or not he really is counterattacking. Reminds me of that Bill Cosby bit about their made-up game Buck-Buck- “What was that? A mosquito bit me!” Here’s a guy who used to be supreme ruler over tens of millions with a regionally feared army, and now he can’t even counterattack us effectively enough for us to be sure whether he’s counterattacking or not.
