10.        CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE. THE IRAQIS HAVE BUILT
HIGH VALUE FACTORIES IN CAVES IN THE MOUNTAINS NORTH OF BAGHDAD.
MISSILE, BIOLOGICAL. AND CHEMICAL MUNITIONS FACTORIES ARE SAID TO
HAVE BACK-UP FACTORIES IN THESE CAVES. THE IRAQI BIOLOGICAL WARFARE
EFFORT BEGAN IN 1981 WITH GERMAN EXPATRIATE ASSISTANCE. THE EXAMPLE

30.000 KURDS

THE IRAQIS COULD EASILY CONTAMINATE KUWAITI WATER SUPPLIES WITH

BIOLOGICAL VIRUIES. HE ALSO BELEIVES THE IRAQIS WOULD USE CHEMICAL
MUNITIONS AGAINST ARAB FORCES. HE DOUBTS AMERICAN FORCES WILL BE
TARGETED WITH CHEMICAL MUNITIONS. AS THE IRAQIS FEAR AMERICAN
REPRISALS WITH TACTICAL NUCLEAR WEAPONS. CONFOUNDING THE USE OF
CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN SOUTHERN IRAQ IS THE CONSTANT SHIFTING OF
WINDS.
