Bush says antiwar protests will not sway his opinion
' ' WASHINGTON (AP) — Declaring that America's security should not be dictated by protesters, President Bush said Tuesday he would not be swayed from compelling Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to disarm. “We will deal with him,” Bush said as U.S. and British diplomats weighed another bid for U.N. backing.
“War is my last choice," Bush said at the White House as echoes of antiwar protests circled the globe. “But the risk of doing nothing is even a worse option as far as I am concerned.”
Standing firmly against skeptical allies as well as the demonstrators, Bush said, “I owe it to the American people to secure this country. I will do so.”
Administration officials in Washington and at the United Nations in New York were discussing the possible gains as well as the risk of a diplomatic defeat if the United States proposed a new resolution to the Security Council to endorse force as an option to disarm Iraq.
Attack in South Korean subway kills 120 people
DAEGU, South Korea (AP) — Kim Ho-keun, a 68-year-old grandfather, was about to get off the crowded subway when an explosion knocked him to the floor. He awoke in darkness minutes later, gasping for breath and desperate to escape a fiery attack that killed 120 people on Tuesday.
Struggling to call for help, Kim feared the worst until he heard a rescue worker’s voice.
“I couldn’t see him, but I saw his flashlight, so I grabbed his hand,”
Kim said from his hospital bed, tubes supplying him with oxygen. “It was then that I thought to myself: I'm going to five.”
Kim was one of the fortunate in Daegu, South Korea's third-largest city.
The fire started about IO a.m. when a man lit a container of flammable liquid and tossed it. The blaze incinerated two six-car subway trains, killed 120 people and injured 138, many of them seriously.
Rescue workers gave up the search for survivors by the afternoon.
