There is one problem, difficulty, in most Middle Eastern "countries" few westerners recognize. The people often have their extended family as their first loyalty (and it may be several hundred people large as marring a second cousin is frequently done, if not mandatory to grow the strength / cohesion of your family group). This is for example why not one of the many who knew where Saddam was hiding in his "rabbit hole" turned him in for the millions of dollars reward offered. - Doing that would dishonor the family and make for swift, sure execution. "Family honor" is the most important thing - your duty is to kill a daughter or anyone else who brings shame on the family. I put country in quotes as loyalty to it, if any, is way down on the list of loyalties, for most (essentially all not on the government's pay roll). Failing to understand that is why most US efforts at bringing order and democracy to these "nations" is doomed to fail.* Loyalty to your branch of Islam is usually # 2. After that there are many different loyalties higher than loyal to the nation. For example, loyalty to your friendly butcher who gives you a better cut of meat for the same price as the cheaper cut is why you loyally only buy meat at his store. Many of these "nations" got their boundaries by from an employee of the British Foreign Office, BFO, a few hundred years ago drawing lines on a map. In many cases the lines were drawn purposely to throw groups who hated each other into one nation, as then it was easier to control. Few know that Quaite was originally part of Iraq but then later split off by the BFO as that put too much oil in one country. Saddam's invasion of Quaite was much like Lincoln's effort to reunify the country, except it failed. Thus large rewards (even in gold) are much less effective than most westerners would assume in getting information about where the "alternate site" might be, and it does not need to be bigger than a one car garage, OR UNIQUE. The two agents later mixed to make sarin, don't need to be made at the same location - safer not to. * BTW, I explained all this in a few posts before GWB invaded Iraq but am too lazy to did them up. Perhaps someone will?
