US. will win gulf, recession wars, Bush says

Associated Press

WASHINGTON -— President Bush con-
fidently assured Americans last night that
the war against Iraq will be won and the re-
cession at home will recede in short order.
“We stand at a defining hour,” the president
said in his State of the Union address.

“The winds of change are with us now.
The forces of freedom are united,” Bush
said in remarks prepared for a nationally
broadcast address to a joint session of Con-

It was the first wartime State of the Un-
ion address since Vietnam. Extraordinary
security precautions enshrouded the Capi-
to]. a bow to threats of terrorism.

“For two centuries, we've done the hard

work of freedom. And tonight, we lead the
world in facing down a threat to decency
and humanity,” Bush said.

“As Americans, we know there are times
when we must step forward and accept our
responsibility to lead the world away from
the dark chaos of dictators, toward the
brighter promise of a better day." Bush said.

The president delivered a terse assess-
ment of the war to date: “I’m pleased to re-
port that we are on course. Iraq’s capacity to
sustain war is being destroyed.

“Time will not be Saddam’s salvation."

With Americans’ attention focused on the
almost half-million troops risking their lives
in the Persian Gulf. Bush devoted the heart
of his annual address to the two-week—old
battle to force Saddam out of Kuwait.

In the Congress, Democrats and Republi-

cans rallied behind the president. “Now
that war has begun, we'll work to see that
it’s swift and decisive, with the least possi-
ble loss of life," said Senate Majority Lead-
er George Mitchell. D-Maine, one of those
who had preferred more diplomacy to war.
Bush paid tribute to the democratic aspi-
rations of the people of the Soviet Baltic
states and said he remained “deeply con-
cerned” about the Kremlin’s crackdown.
Bush. who met Monday with Soviet For-
eign Minister Alexander Bessmertnykh.
said the Soviet leadership had made prom-
ises that “would result in the withdrawal of
some Soviet forces. a reopening of dia-
logue with the Republics and a move away
from violence.” Administration sources
said the United States was expecting a
“substantial withdrawal,” and some roll-

back had already been detected.

Bush also announced he was refocusing
the decade-old Strategic Defense Initiative
to protect against limited ballistic missile
threats. rather than an all-out nuclear war.
He praised the success of Patriot antimissile
missiles. a Star Wars-style weapon that has
killed dozens of Iraqi Scud missiles.

“Let us pursue an SDI program that can
deal with any future threat to the United
States, to our forces overseas, and to our
friends and allies," he said.

For the first time, Bush acknowledged
without qualification that the nation is in a
recession. “People are in genuine economic
distress. I hear them,” he said.

But he said, “There are reasons to be op-
timistic about our economy" —- citing low
inflation and record export levels by US.


“We will get this recession behind us.
and return to growth —— soon,” Bush prom-
ised. stopping short of offering a blueprint
for recovery.

Constrained by huge budget deficits.
Bush offered only a modest list of domestic

wraps for a national energy strategy. an

Nationalism and Islam Will

Muhammad explained several
reasons why Arabs don‘t see eye-to—

ism and Islam would be altered.

Muhammad, who was born and
educated in Kuwait. said he be;
lieved the crisis was the result of the
“selfishness of Saddam Hussein"
but that it was not it result of Arab
nationalism nor Islamic fundamcn»

“It is the corruptions of the elites

Diving tower lauded by contractors

Staff Writer

UK's diving team has been saying
all along that the new diving tower
at the Harry C. Lancaster Aquatics
Center was the best in the world.

Yesterday, the tower’s technical
dominance was firmly established
— in this commonwealth. anyway
— when its contractors were hon—
ored with the Association of Gener-
al Contractors 1990 “Build Ken-
tucky” award.

E.C. Matthews Company won the
award, which lists “state-of—the-art
advancement” as one the six criteria
used in evaluating structures.

The annual statewide competition
gives awards in three categories —
buildings, highways and utilities.
E.C. Matthews Company won the
Building Division.

The $239,950 project was judged
in six areas, including project man-
agement, construction techniques,
client service, and contribution to
the community.

Before the tower was completed

in October, UK divers had to travel
to Ohio State University to practice.

UK is also scheduled to hold the

The tower’s most unique quality
is its force plate — which was im-
ported from Switzerland. One of
only two such devices in the world
— the other being in Barcelona,
Spain — the plate measures the
force exerted by the divers as they
leave the platform.

The plate provides researchers
and coaches with a new tool for
studying a diver’s performance,
head coach Wynn Paul said.

CNN airs first tape of Saddam interview

NEW YORK —— CNN’s first showing of a taped interview with
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein began yesterday. But the transmis-
sion was interrupted by what CNN said was an air raid over Bagh-

CNN said the interruption occurred at 4:08 pm. EST after CNN
staffers in Baghdad had transmitted 12 minutes of the 90-minute in-
terview Saddam taped Monday with correspondent Peter Amett.

CNN showed excerpts of what had been sent, starting 20 minutes
after the transmission stopped. CNN had no word on when the trans-
missions would resume, said spokesman Steve Haworth.

The tape was being sent via a portable satellite transmitter that a
five-member CNN crew brought over land in a 2-ton truck from Jor—
dan on Monday.

Iraq, eager to tell its side of the Persian Gulf war to CNN‘s global
audience, granted the news team visas to enter Iraq. It refused the
visa requests of ABC, NBC and CBS, those networks say.

Amett, using a satellite telephone and subject to Iraqi censorship,
reported on Monday the main poian of Saddam’s interview, includ-
ing the Iraqi president‘s statements that his Scud missiles can carry
chemical, biological and nuclear warheads. Iraq‘s satellite transmitter
was knocked out by United States-led air raids against government
facilities in the Baghdad area shortly after the Persian Gulf war be-
gan two weeks ago.

Kent State students not as active
compared to the Vietnam days

College Information Network

KENT, Ohio — Times have
changed at Kent State University.

Kent State is linked in the nation-
al consciousness to student protest,
and some people see this Midwest
university as a bellwether of anti-
war activism on campuses from
California to New York.

They may be surprised at what
they would see today.

More than 20 years after National
Guardsmen killed four students dur-
ing protests of the U.S. invasion of
Cambodia, a new breed of activist
has emerged — resentful of Kent's
past and supportive of the Persian
Gulf War.

that there‘s a strong American
voice here," said Mike Homula, 20,

Ecological alarm sounds as oil spill creeps in

- RIYADH. Saudi Arabia — Saudi
Arabia has sounded an international
ecological alarm as it moves to pre-
vent the wholesale death of coral
reefs, turtles, birds and other ani-
mals from history's greatest oil

With the slick already polluting
some areas of the Saudi Arabian
coastline, teams have been dis-
patched to rescue wildlife and sur-
Vey the general impact, a leading
Saudi environmental official said

Abdulaziz H Abuzinada the sec-
retary- general of the National Com-
mission for Wildlife Conservation
and Development, said booms were
placed around the Jena, Keram, Ke-

reen and Jeried islands in the Per-
sian Gulf to protect vital nesting
grounds for thousands of birds and

Abuzinada said his agency was
establishing links with wildlife ex-
perts around the world. hoping to
create a task force to aid the animals
in distress or destroy those beyond

US. and Saudi military officials
say the slick was deliberately
caused by lraq opening the tap at
Kuwait’s Al-Ahmadi oil tanker sta-
tion. They describe the action as
“ecological terrorism.“

“The problem is so large that no assurance can be
given that the available resources and expertise will
be able to prevent severe ecological damage.”

On Monday, the US. military
said it believed the spill —— estimat-
ed to be 35 miles long and 10 miles
wide — had been largely stopped at
the source.

“The problem is so large that no
assurance can be given that the
available resources and expertise
will be able to prevent severe eco
logical damage," Abuzinada said.

A team of American experts has
arrived and other countries and pri-
vate citizens have offered help.

But Abuzinada stressed there still
was great need for more intemation-
al assistance.

He said it would be difficult to

ing given to warding off the slick
from water desalination and elec-
tricity generation plants along Saudi
Arabia‘s gulf coast.

Oil industry experts estimated
that the slick would hit Jubail —
site of the world‘s largest desalina-
tion plant — in about tltree days.

US. officials said the spill's lead-
ing edge was heading south at 15
miles a day but there were also re-
ports of speedier movement.

Industry experts warn that high
waves or heavy currents could
splash oil over booms designed to
protect against the slick.
