ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a report related to military strategy of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, which was released by Central Intelligence Agency of the U.S. The report, compiled by Charles Duelfer, chief U.N. weapons inspector, reveals that Hussein was impressed by the way technology conveyed military power. To him, weapons of mass destruction were a telling symbol of strength and modernity and he thought any country that could develop them had an intrinsic right to do so.
