Saddam Hussein appeared today in full military uniform on Iraqi T-V, promising his people that victory will soon be theirs.
He says allied forces "will not be able to escape lightly from their predicament."
That, as the death toll from the war continues rising.
As allied troops continue to head north toward Baghdad, American and British forces in Southern Iraq are finding heavy resistance.
Drew Levinson is in Kuwait City this morning, and joins us now with an update on the war.

THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT AND INTO THE DAY COALITION FORCES CONTINUE TO BE MET WITH ENEMY FIRE.... AND ALLIED TROOPS ARE SUFFERING THE WORST CASUALITIES OF THIS WAR. THE FIERCEST FIGHTING HAS COME IN SOUTHERN IRAQ WHERE SADDAM HUSSEIN'S FORCES PRETEND TO SURRENDER ONLY TO OPEN FIRE ON AMERICANS.
THIS MORNING, IRAQI TV RELEASED THESE PICTURES OF A U.S. APACHE HELICOPTER DOWN ABOUT 50 OUTSIDE OF BAGHDAD. IT APPEARS TO BE INTACT BUT THERE'S NO INDICATION OF WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CREW.
ELSEWHERE A WRONG TURN BY A U-S CONVOY APPARENTLY SENT THESE AMERICAN SOLDIERS INTO THE HANDS OF THE ENEMY. ARAB TELEVISION IS SHOWING VIDEO OF THE PRISONERS OF WAR.. AND THE DEAD... WHO APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN EXECUTED.

(NATS)

SADDAM DID NOT REFERENCE THE P-O-W'S DURING A SPEECH EARLY THIS MORNING. BUT HE DID MENTION CURRENT BATTLES.... AND TRIED TO RALLY HIS COUNTRY SAYING "VICTORY WILL BE OURS SOON". SADDAM HAD NO VISIBLE INJURIES, BUT IT IS UNKNOWN WHETHER THE SPEECH WAS LIVE OR TAPED.

(STANDUP: Drew Levinson/CBS NEWS/Southern Iraq)

HERE IN IRAQ MUCH OF THE SKY IS BLACK, THESE ARE THE RUMAYLA OIL FIELDS, WHEN THE MARINES STORMED THIS AREA, IT FORCED THE IRAQIS TO RETREAT BUT NOT BEFORE THEY TORCHED SOME OF THE OIL WELLS.

(natsound)

IT WAS SOMETHING SADDAM SAID HE WOULD NEVER DO TO HIS OWN PEOPLE.... BUT USING DYNAMITE HIS SOLDIERS SABATOGED THE WELLS.

Governor Mark Warner faces a midnight deadline to act on bills passed by the General Assembly earlier this year. Over the weekend, Warner said he would sign a bill requiring proof of citizenship or residency to obtain state driver's licenses.
He also proposed an exception to a bill denying illegal aliens in-state tuition at Virginia public colleges. The governor has yet to act on several controversial bills that were passed this year.
One would eliminate Virginia's tax on estates, while two others would increase restrictions on women seeking abortions.
