Reuters reports:

Iraq went on war footing on Saturday night when the leadership issued a decree dividing the country into four military districts under the command of President Saddam Hussein.
“The Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) issued a decree today that forms four regional leaderships under President Saddam Hussein to take the necessary steps to repulse and destroy any foreign aggression…and securing the domestic front,” the state Iraqi News Agency (INA) said.

I’m not a war expert, but this sounds like another step towards war.
Let’s hope that a declaration of war is not issue in tomorrow’s summit in the Azores. If that happens, Portugal and Spain become new targets for Saddam X-(.
