Israeli commandos planned to assassinate Saddam Hussein with 'smart' missiles that would hit him as he stood in a crowd at a relative's funeral in his home town of Tikrit.
Not long ago I read this book about the Sayeret Matkal disaster in training for the assasination of Iraq's leader, and it raised a real deep question that I would like to share here.
Considering that the Sayeret matkal is one of the most capable Elite units in the world, if there was no accident and Israel would go against Saadam, how would this change history and shape the middle East future?
Do you believe that if this would happen Iraq would have fallen into more radical islamic leadership or even start a new middle east conflict like 67?
