Tyrone Daily Herald (Newspaper) - August 3, 1992, Tyrone, Pennsylvania Saddams At It Again Rattling His Saber KUWAIT AP Kuwaitis are nervous and suspicious about neigh boring Iraq which is once again asserting its claim to the oilrich emi rate boasting of Kuwaits glorious reunification with the motherland No its not August 1990 when Iraq invaded Kuwait Its two years later and sentiments havent much changed despite a war a UN em bargo and continuing antagonism between President Bush and Saddam Hussein Joint LlSKuwaiti military maneuvers getting under way in the emi rate today aim to reassure anxious Kuwaitis that enough military might is available to defend them in the event of another invasion Advance parties organizing the desert maneuvers which are to run two weeks came ashore today A contingent of 1900 Marines is to ar rive on Tuesday In all about 5000 US troops will participate Crown Prince Saad Abdullah alSabah has put Kuwaits armed for ces still in the process of rebuilding on full alert On Sunday the second anniversary of the Iraqi invasion Iraqi televi sion showed the concluding episode of a series called Mirage arid Re ality that has been staking out its claim to Kuwait three times a week since July The return of Kuwait a usurped territory to the motherland Iraq epitomized the Iraqis firm national will apart from allowing one of their dreams tocome true gloated Prime MinisterMohammed Hamza alZubaidi in a broadcast on staterun Radio Baghdad Nevermind that Iraq was driven from Kuwait by a USled allied force in February 1991 and is required under UN ceasefire terms to re linquish claims to Kuwait The prime minister hailed the Aug 21990 invasion as an immortal day if not the dearest and most glorious day in the psyche of the Iraqis The emirates annexation as Iraqs 19lh province was the great est historic epic in the contemporary history of Iraq the radio said The governmentrun AlJumhouriya newspaper proclaimed that Ku wait eventually shall return to the right people Iraqs officical news agency reported The only acknowledgement of UN trade sanctions was exaltation by Radio Baghdad at Iraqs efforts to circumvent the embargo including successful efforts by its Atomic Energy Organization to produce liquid sugar from dates Iraq has refused to recognize a new border drawn up by the United Nations Until recently it prevented UN weapons inspectors from seek ing some documents and materials on Iraqi arms programs as mandated under the ceasefire In response the Bush administration decided to send an extra 2400 troops to participate in the desert maneuvers Bush also sent a battery of Patriot missiles to Kuwait ahead of schedule and another battery of the antimissile weaponry to Bahrain Kuwait too displayed some bravado Iraqi Boxer in Mother of All Defeats said a frontpage headline today in the Englishlanguage Arab Times The story told how Iraqi boxer Furas Hashim wept after suffering a technical knockout to an American Samoan at the Barcelona Olympics It makes me laugh So Saddam thinks Kuwait is Iraqs 19th pro vince Does he even control six of the other 18 said Col Mohammed alSirri spokesman for the Kuwaiti Ministry of Defense He was allud ing to Saddams trouble with Kurdish insurgents in the north and Shiites in the south For Bush A No Win Situation This Time WASHINGTON AP Congressional Democrats believe Presi dent Bush is in a nowin dilemma on policy toward Iraq and their public statements of support conceal a private delight with his predicament His no longer a home run ball for George Bush to talk about Iraq said Rep Vic Fazio DCalif 1 He has to focus on something he never finished added Rep David Bonior DMich the No 3 Democrat in the House He is distracted by this hes hurt Its caught up with him Emerging from a White House meeting on the Iraqi crisis last week House Speaker Thomas Foley and Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell were serious nonpartisan supportive We dont view this in an election context said Mitchell DMaine They dont have to What Mitchell didnt say was mat Democrats be lieve Bush has found himself ensnared in a foreignpolicy dilemma that is now largely beyond his control If the president does nothing to enforce the United Nations resolu tions that were the conditions of halting the Persian Gulf War Iraqi President Saddarn Hussein picks up strength and the UNs newfound vitality is eroded Limited air strikes by the United States and its allies to enforce the sanctions pose a double risk They may fail to force Saddams com pliance with UN mandates and they may be seen by American voters as a cynical move by Bush to bolster his anemic popularity ratings And the ultimate option fullscale military moves against Iraq may no longer be possible because of lagging allied support and what Demo crats say is Americans reluctance to go to war again in the region Go ing to war too could raise the question of political motives by Bush Its almost past time for the president whether on domestic or fore ign policy to be showing leadership to impress the American people said Sen Paul Simon DI11 Doing anything at this point can easily be misread About the only potential escape for Bush Democrats say would be a clean and painless move to remove Saddam from power But intelli gence officials say that is also the least likely outcome Saddam has in sulated himself well and a covert action program Bush approved to aid Kurdish and Shiite resistance forces inside Iraq is seen as a longshot Atleast half adozen committees and subcommittees are investigating how the administration treated Iraq in the months leading up to its inva sion of Kuwait two years ago Classified documents have shown embarrassing sales of US tech nology that helped Iraq advance its ambitious development programs for nuclear chemical and biological weapons and ballistic missiles sales Bush had denied And last weeks UN deal on inspection of the Agriculture Ministry brought some of the harshest rhetoric so far To have been outmaneuvered in negotiations by Saddam Hussein who comes to the negotiating table with virtually no assets is an unbe lievable state of affairs said Rep Bob Torricelli DNJ The victory that was won on the battlefield is going to be lost by misjudgments Thousands Of Marines Set To Land In Kuwait KUWAIT AP US Marines hit ihe dock today setting up ca mouflage
