Expert says Iraqis still have
nuclear know-how despite war abx y, ,es

* by Christopher Scherer
David Kay, the former chief in-
spector of the International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA) who ob-
served Iraq's nuclear capabilities
firsthand last September, explained
Iraq's development of nuclear capa-
bilities yesterday in the Chrysler
Center Auditorium.
The Iraqi nuclear program was
anything but small, Kay said. They
were not producing "two or three
(warheads) to use on Israel, but a
much broader range just to en-
counter one country," he added.
Kay said at the start of Desert
Storm, Iraq was approximately 12

to 18 months away from creating a
functional nuclear warhead.
The inspection team was sur-
prised by the number of foreign
components that contributed to
Iraq's nuclear capabilities, Kay
Some significant components
with dual purposes of industrial use
or for the creation of a nuclear arse-
nal from foreign suppliers were
usually obtained under false pre-
tenses, Kay said. They remained un-
detected because the Iraqis claimed
to be using the goods for industrial
Kay said international literature

enabled the building of reactors
which were used to create Uranium-
235, a key element in nuclear bombs.
Kay attributed the war effort to
get Iraq out of Kuwait as the main
deterrent to the Iraqi program.
"Effective superpower nuclear
weapon control must continue,"
Kay said.
Clandestine inspection programs
and short-notice inspections are
needed to regulate the world's nu-
clear arsenal, Kay said.
Although Kay said the programs
were dismantled after the war, the
Iraqis still have the scientific
knowledge needed to be a nuclear
But without the economic block-
ade in effect, Iraq would be able to
resume development soon, Kay
Conclusive evidence of nuclear
capabilities didn't exist before the
Gulf War. But after the Tuwaitha
plant, 50 miles north of Baghdad,
was struck by an American bomber,
reconnaissance photos revealed un-
usual activity in the area, Kay said.
Graduate student Jon Bawabe
said, "This is the first time some-
body told me that the Iraqis are def-
initely a part of the nuclear powers
... there is no way to keep them out
of it at this point and that's a
frightening thing ... now the ques-
tion is how to deal with them

Chalkers color Diag to
protest redeputization
by Loretta Lee

Daily Staff Reporter

David Kay, chief inspector for the International Atomic Energy Agency
speaks at Chrysler Auditorium yesterday.

,U.N. maintains sanctions while
Iraq, ignores cease-fire resolution

The chalkers returned to the
Diag yesterday with fresh chalk,
but an old message.
Students calling themselves
SHIT Happens (Students Halting
Institutionalized Terrorism)
marked several slogans on the
pavement including "Will you
wait till someone is dead?"
The group is trying to call at-
tention to the changes in the depu-
tized University police force and
to the public hearings being held
later this month.
The hearings are required by law
before University police officers
can be made accountable to the Uni-
versity Board of Regents instead of
the county sheriff.
When campus security officers
were converted to full officers au-
thorized to carry guns in the fall of
1990, the regents called on the
county sheriff to deputize them.
Because regents will now depu-

tize the officers, an oversight board
and public hearings are required.
Although the University has
set up two open hearings, members
of SHIT Happens claim that the
hearings will serve no real purpose.
"Our participation in the hear-
ing is a rubber stamp for decisions
that have already been made," said
chalker Todd Ochoa, an LSA repre-
sentative to the Michigan Student
Assembly. "For us to participate
in the hearings is farcical."
SHIT Happens' "educational"
chalking, according to Ochoa, hopes
to spark participation from other
student organizations and to act as
a means of education and communi-
cation to students.
Although Ochoa declined to de-
tail a plan of action to eliminate a
deputized police force, he said
plans included "ways in which we
could hold the regents account-
Students gave mixed reviews to


the chalking.
"I thought it was kind of point-
less because they didn't tell who
they were ... I didn't know what
was going on," said first-year LSA
student Dennis Kim.
School of Natural Resources ju-
nior Elizabeth Toomer, who said
she had been harassed by the police,
said the chalkers' messages were
"quite true."
Although she said she agreed
with the messages, Toomer said she
thought SHIT Happens could make
its point better by "bringing the
shanties back."
LSA sophomore Dan Rabi-
novitch also said he agreed with the
campaign but not with SIT Hap-
pens' methods.
"It's alreadybeen proven that
the chalking doesn't work," Rabi-
novitch said. "What it's going to
take is massive solidarity. That en-
tails spending more time talking to
student groups and lobbying."

The Security Council escalated its
confrontation with Iraq yesterday
by renewing its commitment to
punishing sanctions and issuing
informal threats of tougher action.
In a bimonthly review of sanc-
tions imposed on Iraq for its inva-
sion of Kuwait, the 15-member
council decided to keep in place an

18-month-old worldwide ban on al-
most all trade with Saddam
Hussein's government.
Diplomats hinted that tougher
action - possibly including a threat
of military force - could be taken
if Iraq does not fully cooperate
with U.N. inspections of its nuclear,
chemical and biological weapons

U.S. Ambassador Thomas Pickering
told reporters after chairing a

declined to elaborate.
Austrian Ambassador Peter
Hohenfellner, chainnan of the U.N.
sanctions committee, said he and fel-
low diplomats did not know why
Iraq was not cooperating.
The council said in a statement
that Iraq also was not moving suffi-
ciently to repatriate Kuwaitis and
other foreigners it holds, or to
return Kuwaiti property as required
under the Gulf War cease-fire.
Tyson's trial

deadly fire early yesterday at the

were sequestered forced a delay of
his rape trial. The mayor requested a

Hours later, the former world
heavyweight champion showed up
briefly at the City-County
Building, where he is being tried on
charges of rape and criminal deviate
conduct. Tyson, 25, faces up to 60
years in prison if convicted.
The trial probably will resume
today, court spokesperson Joe
Champion said.
Sheriff's deputies tightened se-
curity outside the courtroom, set-
ting up a walk-through metal detec-
tor for media and spectators and
bringing in a bomb-sniffing dog. The
trial judge, Patricia Gifford, banned
cameras from the second floor, with
the exception of three poolcameras.
Mayor Stephen Goldsmith re-
quested federal arson investigators,
citing the "unusual coincidence of
the proximity of the jury."
Theblaze erupted in a lounge and
destroyed the third and fourth
floors of the seven-story hotel, au-
thorities said.
Fire Department spokesperson
Capt. Gary Campbell said eight
other occupants and four firefight-
ers were injured.

"Roots" author Alex Haley
paid another visit to the University
Well, sort of.
Haley was part of a videoconfer-
ence panel broadcast live from
Washington, D.C., and televised to
several college sites throughout the
country, including the University's
Alumni Center.
Congressmember Maxine Wa-
ters (D-CA), USA Today columnist
Barbara Reynolds, journalist and
professor at the University of
North Carolina-Chapel Hill Chuck
Stone, and Henry Hampton, pro-
ducer of the popular civil rights
documentary "Eyes on the Prize"
joined Haley on the panel.
. The panel, titled "Beyond the
Dream IV: Discovering the Past -
Understanding the Future," ad-
dressed a gamut of issues from rap
lyrics to the philosophies of the late
Malcolm X.
Hampton said young people to-
day have trouble understanding

Malcolm X's impact on African
Americans. "It's very hard to get
the audience today to understand the
world in which Malcolm came," he
Stone said the problem is that
young people have not been educated
about African history. "They don't
understand Malcolm," Stone said.
"What Malcolm felt for his
family, these brothers don't feel. for
theirs - or they wouldn't be
killing and raping. If that's the way
they understand it, then it's our
fault because we are responsible for
their education," Stone said.
All of the panelists agreed, say-
ing people who commit crimes
while sporting the familiar "X" on
hats and T-shirts act in opposition
to Malcolm X's ideals.
Reynolds said she strongly ob-
jects to obscenities in lyrics by
African American rappers. "When
we were young, we weren't afraid to
say, 'Brother or sister, I love you.'

Today we hear these Black men say-
ing they're going to rub somebody's
genitals. I don't see Black men say-
ing this is not the way we want our.
women talked about," she said.
Toward the end of the discussion,
the panel offered solutions to these.
problems, stressing the importance.
of communication between commu-:
nities and education about all people
of color in schools.
"Black history is not something
apart. We were born right here in
America. Black history is a facet of
American history. Without under-
standing the Chinese and their
building of the railroads and Black
history, you cannot know the his-
tory of this country," Haley said.
About 20 students and faculty
attended the program, which was
sponsored by the Office of Minority
Affairs and several other campus
groups. The students were able to
call the panel in Washington and ask
