Panic Room, or The Architecture of Cower

An assessment of Sadaam's "bunker-buster"-proof bunker, by its architect, German Karl Esser.

Let's see, 3-ton Swiss-made doors, 2 escape tunnels, one leading to the Tigris river, a water tank, electricity generator, air filter, 30 square meter command center and so-called electromagnetic pulse protection system -- to shield electrical circuits from the impact of an explosion. Able to withstand a 230 kg bomb. Presumably the German Government has the blueprints.
