that Saddam is not to be trustedl and his past behavior
gives little reason to believe he will yield.
"Everyone hopes a diplomatic solution is available
and can work, Blair said. "We all want that. But I
think all of our experience of Saddam Hussein teach-
es us that diplomacy has very little chance of working
unless it is clear to him that if. diplomacy does not
work, then the threat and the reality of force is there."
If force is used, Clinton said, its purpose will not be to
eliminate Saddam, as some members of Congress and
some independent analysts have urged. He said such an
aim would go beyond a United Nations mandate to
enforce sanctions, and he would not deviate from an
executive order issued in the 1970s by President Gerald
Ford banning assassination of foreign leaders.
It appeared yesterday that the diplomats pressing
their case with Iraq have at least several days, and pos-
sibly a few weeks, to deliver results Washington and
London consider credible.
Defense Secretary William Cohen left last night for
a security conference in Germany that he will follow
with visits to Saudi Arabia and other gulf states for
talks about possible military action. The movement of
the Marine contingent from the Mediterranean to the
Persian Gulf would take at least 10 days, defense offi-
A senior general at the Pentagon said Gen. Anthony
Zinni, commander of U.S. forces in the gulf, had
requested the Marines as a precaution in the event
Saddam launches a counter-attack in response to U.S.
air strikes. Their presence will bring the total number
of U.S. troops in the region to more than 30,000.
"That response could take numerous twists," the gen-
eral said. "One of them might be to literally try to move
troops south again" into Kuwait or Saudi Arabia. "Or
another might be to try to put some of the cities in the
region in harm's way using some kind of missiles.
"The Marines could help provide some mobile
ground forces. And secondly, they provide the ability
to evacuate non-combatants if necessary."
Vedrine said France will continue its effort to con-
vince the Iraqis that "they have to accept the fact that
the (U.N. Special) Commission has to be able to work
and that in disarmament matters it isn't humiliating to
allow an inspection commission to work ... We have
to persevere, be tenacious and patient."
China publicly added its voice to those publicly dis-
senting from U.S. and British plans to use military force.
Foreign Minister Qian Qichen, speaking on televi-
sion, said "China is extremely and definitely opposed
to the use of military force because it will result in a
tremendous amount of human casualties and create
more turmoil in the region and even could cause new
New AIDS drug may decrease costs
CHICAGO - Researchers in Los Angeles and Washington have identified wha
may be the first inexpensive AIDS drug, a finding that could have major impor
tance for the 50 percent of H IV-positive Americans not receiving treatment because
of its cost.
They also say that the drug, in conjunction with two other AIDS drugs, ha
induced what may be a permanent remission in three HIV-positive patients
have now gone for more than a year without treatment.
Although experts are skeptical about the remission claims, many ar<
impressed by reported successes with the drug, called hydroxyurea, and hav<
begun incorporating it into their own treatment regimens.
The drug is unique in that it affects host cells in the patient rather than th<
"I think it is going to become a pretty permanent fixture" in AIDS thera
py, said Dr. Paul Volberding of the University of California, San Francisco
"By itself, it is not an antiviral agent, but it seems to make other drugs worl
The researchers say they think the drug works so well because HIV can
develop resistance to it. Moreover, they also say that hydroxyurea also les
chances of HIV resistance to other AIDS drugs as well.

Hearings look at
WASHINGTON - One cigarette
company discussed targeting young peo-
ple with honey and cola-flavored ciga-
rettes and another was looking for ways
to entice black youths, according to
internal documents made public at a con-
gressional hearing yesterday. At the same
time, the Clinton administration said it
could support legislation to protect
tobacco companies from most lawsuits.
"We obviously prefer a comprehen-
sive tobacco bill without any liability
limits" White House spokesperson
Mike McCurry said. However, he said,
"If we get everything we want in the
tobacco bill, which goes to the heart of
the president's public health recommen-
dations ... then reasonable limits on lia-
bility would not be a deal-breaker."
But numerous lawmakers remained
cool to the $368 billion settlement
reached in June between states and
tobacco companies, not wanting to grant
favors in this election to an industry that
tried to hook children on tobacco prod-
ucts. The deal would end 40 state law
suits against the industry and grant thi
companies protection from class-actio
lawsuits if the companies pay the mone
over 25 years and change business prac
tices, such as marketing. Industry exec
utives, meanwhile, are demanding

Iraqi inspection offer
met with skepticism
UNITED NATIONS - Iraqi
President Saddam Hussein's offers to
permit U.N. arms inspectors limited
access to his "presidential compounds"
led some diplomats yesterday to sug-
gest he may be backing down from his
defiant stand. But U.N. officials said
the proposals appear to fall short of
what is required to determine whether
the sites hide illegal weapons.
A procession of Russian, French,
Turkish and Arab diplomats have
been visiting Baghdad this week to
find a resolution to the Iraqi impasse.
That has generated reports that Iraq
may permit inspectors into "presiden-
tial palaces" and other sites for a lim-
ited period, if accompanied by diplo-
mats from the 15 nations represented
on the U.N. Security Council. The
council oversees the disarmament
U.N. Delegates stressed that nothing
official had been conveyed to the coun-
cil and that talks in Baghdad are con-
But, for example, British Foreil
Secretary Robin Cook, who is visitit
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, said yestc
day, "There are some interestingr
posals there, although they d
match up to our requirement of ft
compliance ... If the U.N. inspecti
regime is going to work, it must
