The Allies have decided to take action against Saddam Hussein.
The Americans are sending 10,000 troops and two aircraft carriers.
The French are sending 4,000 Legionaries.
The British are sending 250 teenage au-pairs.
[Submitter's note: A British teenage au-pair in the USA had her conviction of second-degree murder reduced to manslaughter this week after an appeal. A baby in her care had died mysteriously.]
