BAGHDAD — President Saddam Hussein warned Sunday that if Iraq is attacked, it will take the war anywhere in the world “wherever there is sky, land and water.”
Saddam’s threat was made during a meeting with military commanders and his remarks were carried by the official Iraqi News Agency. It came as President Bush said today was the “moment of truth” for the United Nations to demand Baghdad’s “immediate and unconditional disarmament.”
Saddam told his commanders: “When the enemy starts a large-scale battle, he must realize that the battle between us will be open wherever there is sky, land and water in the entire world.”
Saddam also denied Iraq has any weapons of mass destruction, as the United States and Britain claim.
“Are weapons of mass destruction a needle that you can conceal in a head cover or in the scarf of an old woman that (U.N. weapons) inspectors cannot find?” Saddam asked.
“There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,” he added, joking: “Well, give us time and the necessary means, and we will produce any weapon they want and then we will invite them to come and destroy them.”

There were stretches where we played […]
