The attack plan is simple. Wellington used at Waterloo against Napoleon. He hit Napoleon's Personal Elite Guard unit Hard, they caved and began to fall back. Everyone on the battlefield saw this and the common French units began to retreat.
The US is going to hit the Republican Guard HARD. They will retreat and the Iraqi Army regulars won't even come out of their barracks.
So, close to the next lunar cycle (March 1st), is when its going to happen. (No moon, dark empty desert, just those with night vision equipment successfully moving into position for the kill).
Of course I could be wrong and O-day could end up shooting Dad and taking over. Or they could all retire to a nice French Villa on the Med. The French and Hussein deserve each other..
