Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: In a Flurry of recent articles speculating on the nature of a potential U.S. invasion of Iraq, reporters and commentators have raised a ?nightmare? scenario: that a battle for Baghdad would turn into a second Mogadishu. With virtually no chance to survive - let alone win - a force-on-force conflict outside of Iraq?s capital, Saddam would retreat to the close quarters of the streets of Baghdad, the thinking goes. There, the Iraqi army would exact a tremendous price in American blood. In effect, the fighting in Baghdad would be an epic version of the 1993 battle of Mogadishu, as chronicled in the book Black Hawk Down and dramatized in the recent movie.
