UNITED STATES ARMY SOLDIER WATCHES FROM HOUSE IN KUWAIT DESERT.
United States Army PFC Jason Nash of Azusa, California keeps watch
during an urban warfare training session in the north Kuwait desert
February 1, 2003. Nash is part of third platoon, Charlie company of the
3/15 Infantry from Fort Stewart, Georgia. The United States and Britain
are massing armed forces in the Gulf for a possible war on Iraq, which
Washington and London accuse of hiding weapons of mass destruction.
Iraq denies it has such weapons. The U.S. military called up 15,718
reserve troops this week, swelling the number of reservists on duty to
94,624 - the highest since the 1991 Gulf War. REUTERS/Chris Helgren
