Examines the United States military operations to destroy Iraq's Scud missiles. Intelligence analysts' speculated that Iraq's President Saddam Hussein may use Scud missiles, along with chemical and biological warfare, if he feels that his position is threatened. Scud missiles were fired from mobile launchers during the Gulf War into Israel, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. The Scud attacks on Israel, it was feared, would provoke an Israeli military response that would make it difficult for Arab states to remain a part of the anti-Iraq coalition. Coalition air force and ground forces made a concentrated effort to locate and destroy the mobile launchers and effectively neutralized the threat.
