Any US-backed Afghan govt will collapse: Saddam
BAGHDAD: Iraqi President Saddam Hussein says the United States will only create new problems that might erupt into terrorism if it tries to install a government in Afghanistan.

"Even if they (the Americans) form a government or coalition, this coalition will break up," Saddam said during a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, the daily al-Iraq reported on Thursday.

"America is adding new reasons for what it calls terrorism, instead of eliminating it completely," he said.
