MOSCOW, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan minced no words by issuing a warning that the United States could face something "even more terrible" than the Sept. 11 attacks if it continues with its present policies. Responding to President Bush's State of the Union address, in which he named Iraq as part of an "axis of evil," Ramadan told a Russian newspaper that Washington's "dirty policies" would backfire and may bring "something even more terrible than Sept. 11, ... a very tough response."
