Scuds, Anyone?

Has Iraq fired scuds? Have coalition troops found scuds? The problem is that at the lower eschelons (and perhaps the higher ones, too), scud refers to any ballistic missile. Scuds are banned but Frogs, another ballistic missile, aren't. And at the start of the war, there were reports that Iraq was shooting anti-ship missiles into Kuwait. I'm just going to wait for the report at the end of the war to figure this one out.

We welcome comments. However, use no profanity and be civil.

Centcom on the third night said no scuds, and I haven't heard of any more claims. But then again, they may turn out to be scuds that they got wrong.

I agree with your general notion on the war--there is little doubt we are routing them--my only concern is whether we have enough of the right kind of troops to minimize our casualties.
