The United States believes that for any coup to succeed in Iraq, it must include the security forces, particularly those closest to Saddam — the Special Security Organization and its Presidential Security force as well as the Special Republican Guard.
They have been rewarded by Saddam with extravagant largesse, including cash, high-performance cars — particularly BMW Z3’s — and in some cases, VIP residences.
“You can see dozens of new Mercedes and BMW’s cruising Baghdad streets,” said Scott Ritter, the former U.N. inspector and MSNBC consultant. “They are shipped from Germany and elsewhere in Europe to Jordan and then driven across the desert. They are a reward for exemplary service.”

The US should drop Audi A4s ($24k) on the BMWs of the Iraqi elite, instead of cruise missiles at $750K each, it saves the government money and will surely start a coup against Saddam. Just imagine if a piece of crap Audi landed on your bimmer.
