NEWSFLASH: Iraqi Troops On the Move?

There are unconfirmed reports coming out of the US State Department that Iraq has begun to move military forces to the West. The Hammurabi Brigade under the control of the Republican Guard is reported to be involved.

During the Gulf War crisis in 1991, Israel made it clear to the Iraqi government that any troop movement westward toward Jordan and Israel would be considered tantamount to an act of war.

Meanwhile, CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather, has been dispatched to Jerusalem to file reports beginning tonight (NZ time).

In another development in the Middle East crisis the US Pentagon has requested that video footage of an apparent suicide attack against a US destroyer which killed and injured sailors in Yemen not be shown . US news media outlets at first complied, but later showed the footage explaining the showing as "a mistake."
