New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 18, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A— HeralD-Zeitung — Saturday, January* 18, 2003 Worid Briefly- Defiant Saddam tells world he’ll stay to fight BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Brushing aside any hint of compromise, Saddam Hussein proclaimed Friday that Iraq is ready for war with the United States and warned that his enemies would face “suicide” at the gates of Baghdad. Saddam’s strong words added to an atmosphere of urgency that followed the discovery Thursday of 12 empty chemical warheads in Iraq — a find described by U.S. officials as “troubling and serious.” White House spokesman Ari Fleischer charged that Iraq hadn’t reported the warheads, but he stopped short of declaring them a violation of U.N. resolutions. As U.N. inspectors played down the importance of the find, French President Jacques Chirac, whose country holds veto power at the United Nations, backed the inspectors’ appeal for more time to carry out their search. In a 40-minute televised address, Saddam said he would defend Baghdad against the United States — despite reports that Arab leaders were trying to persuade him to choose exile instead. Ridge nears confirmation, says struggle will be long WASHINGTON (AP) — Ibm Ridge sailed through Senate confirmation hearings Friday on his way to becoming the nation’s first Homeland Security Department chief and taking on the task of harnessing a giant federal bureaucracy responsible for protecting America from terrorist attack. Ridge, in a hearing before the committee Friday morning, said eradicating that threat will be “a long struggle” He spoke of the “enormity of our task” of bringing together 22 federal agencies with 170,000 employees to lead the security campaign. The department will officially come into being next Friday, although it won’t assume operational control of the agencies until March I. The government has yet to decide where the headquarters will be. S. Korean leader presses U.S. to negotiate with North SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s president-elect pressed the United States on Friday to enter direct negotiations with North Korea, and an envoy from Russia — which has been urged to intervene with the North — said Washington must take the lead in dealing with the crisis. A North Korean official also said only the United States could solve the standoff and spurned an attempt by Seoul to discuss the North’s nuclear ambitions in talks next week. Washington has been canvassing affies to pressure North Korea into scrapping nuclear programs believed capable of building atomic bombs.
