SADDAM VS. SPAM America's latest weapon in its chess mass with Saddam: spam. "Since Thursday, the U.S. government has sent out thousands of e-mail messages to Iraqi leaders...urg(ing) them to give up, to dissent and to defect," CNN has learned.This is the first time the American military has tried the tactic. Similar messages will soon be broadcast through more conventional means -- the radio.THERE'S MORE: Reuters has the text of some of the messages. Here's a sample:
"If you provide information on weapons of mass destruction or you take steps to hamper their use we will do what is necessary to protect you and protect your families. Failing to do that will lead to grave personal consequences."Is there a chance in hell that anyone would be convinced by this?
