Camels of mass destruction?

I don't know if I should find this funny, but I do. Excerpt:
Saddam Hussein planned to use "camels of mass destruction" as weapons to defend Iraq, loading them with bombs and directing them towards invading forces.

The animals were part of a plan to arm and equip foreign insurgents drawn up by the dictator shortly before the American-led invasion three years ago, reveals a 37-page report, captured after the fall of Baghdad and just released by the Pentagon. It is part of a cache of thousands of documents that the United States Department of Defence says it does not have the resources to translate.
If the translation is correct, it suggests that many of the foreign fighters now attacking coalition forces and bombing Iraqi civilians were directly trained by the Saddam regime, although there are no known reports of camels being used in suicide attacks.
Maybe Saddam thinks that the allied forces, not wanting to incur the wrath of PETA, wouldn't kill the "loaded camels" in self defense, huh?

Or, maybe Saddam had just finished off his oversized glass of Crazy As Hell jihad juice?
