Parading Troops Reviewed by Hussein

From Times Wire Reports

Thousands of paramilitary troops organized during the U.N. weapons inspection standoff marched through Baghdad in a show of might and defiance toward the United States. Brandishing assault rifles, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children in khaki, pea green or mottled commando fatigues marched in squads of about 100 across Grand Festivities Square. President Saddam Hussein, seen reviewing the parade in civilian clothes, called on able-bodied Iraqis early this year to sign up for military training to face up to any “American aggression.”
