      I figured, they only put airplanes where it's safe.  And I'm an engineer, so there's no need for me in combat anyway, right?  Turns out Saddam was not briefed on these theories, and decided to lob scuds at us anyway.  Plus any time there was a scud with our heading but a different destination, we got to put on our chem warfare stuff and sweat in a bunker for an hour or more.  Saddam and the Reagan Administration fools that sold him chem warfare related stuff were real high on my list of popular people.
