Iraq Warns US of Potential Terrorist Acts

Iraq will not take responsibility for any terrorist acts that may be carried out in the US if the Pentagon goes to war in the Persian Gulf. This was announced yesterday in Baghdad by representatives of the Iraqi leadership. According to the officials, 'America is methodically arousing the hatred of Arabs from Yemen to Saudi Arabia, so we should not be surprised if this rage is unleashed in new explosions.'

However, the Iraqi government once again declared that 'it is strenuously trying to avoid military action.' According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri, despite the American ultimatum, Baghdad believes that efforts to find a peaceful solution have not yet been exhausted.
