Saddam Hussein tries to score a couple of thousand PS2s but...

  We've all heard about the Saddam Hussein smuggling PS2s to Iraq thing right? So I've decided that I should clear the fog and tell people what really happened. Well watching good ol' Tom Brokaw on NBC, the man brought up the topic of Saddam Hussein smuggling PS2s to Iraq, so that apparently their chips can be used as weapons to control missiles. Since the PS2 can do as many calculations as it can, it is considered to be a supercomputer, but it would also take roughly 10-12 PS2s to control about 2-3 missiles, now that is some incredible power! So the US Intelligence used their 'intelligence' to find out if Saddam had succeeded, but guess what happened? It appears that Saddam had sent a group of people down to Detroit so that they run around through EB Worlds, Sears, Babbages/Software ETC., Toys R' Us' and other stores looking for PS2s. As uninformed and naive as the group was, not only did they not get a single PS2, but they bought 1400 PSOnes, gee... much help that would do them. Not really a very Merry Christmas for Saddam it would be. I hope this clears up any confusion on the topic, and remember that the source of this information is NBC.
