Did America Walk Into A Trap?
In stories reported by Newsweek
and Fox News it appears possible that the armed resistance now being encountered by US/British forces was part of Saddam Hussein's plan all along. The documents that have been found essentially say that should Baghdad fall, the Baath party loyalists should fade into society and extract vengeance on the occupying soldiers bit by bit. The nightmare scenario before the war was urban combat, Mogadishu style
. But now it appears that Hussein may have upped the ante with this "guerrilla-type campaign"
