January 18, 1991. 3:52 a.m. The terrifying wail of a siren splits the night air, sending Israelis racing from their beds to grab their children and run to their sealed rooms. Quickly, nervously, they strap on their gas masks, place their infants in gas tents and wait. Radio broadcasts are interrupted by the codeword "Viper", the sign that the first SCUD missile attack has begun. Tel Avivians hear the boom. Our hearts skip a beat. The Gulf War is the first time Israelis confront the actual and constant threat of chemical warfare. Insidiously, it spreads a cloak of fear that effects all aspects of our lives. Codeword: Viper is the definitive documentary of the Gulf War in Israel.
