"This is not a battle against large armies, navies and air forces. This is a test of will" HE PREDICTED THE VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTRY WOULD GET WORSE AS JANUARY ELECTIONS APPROACH, BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME SAID THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF REDUCING THE NUMBER OF U-S TROOPS AFTER THE ELECTION. THAT REDUCTION WOULD DEPEND ON EXPANDING AND IMPROVING IRAQI FORCES.

The California-based company Genetic Savings and Clone produced the cats as part of their pet cloning program.

((BEN CARLSON/GENETIC SAVINGS & CLONE; WE THINK THAT AH, CLONING IS A SERVICE THAT'S GOING TO BE OF INTEREST TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXCEPTIONAL PETS AND THEY WANT ANOTHER PET THAT'S AS MUCH LIKE IT AS POSSIBLE. WHAT WE OFFER PEOPLE IS ESSENTIALLY A LATER BORN IDENTICAL TWIN.))

But it doesn't come cheap. The cost for a clone is 50-thousand dollars, but the price is expected to drop in coming years.
