Bush to Saddam: 'The game is up'
WASHINGTON (AP) - Edging
closer to war, President Bush
declared yesterday "the game is
over" for Saddam Hussein and urged
skeptical allies to join in disarming
Bush said he would welcome a
new U.N. resolution on Iraq if it
made clear the world body was ready
to use force if Saddam will not
reveal and give up any weapons of
mass destruction as demanded by an
Britain is likely to introduce such a
resolution authorizing force after top
weapons inspectors return from
Baghdad and report to the Security
Council on Feb. 14, British and U.S.
diplomats said yesterday.
Unlike Britain, France has balked
at the idea of war, and Jean-Marc de
La Sabliere, French ambassador to
the United Nations, said yesterday,
"the time has not come" for a second
"The U.N. must not back down,"
Bush said. "All the world can rise to
"Saddam Hussein will be stopped,"
Bush pledged, warning anew that the
United States will act along with
allies if needed. He spoke before
cameras in the White House's Roo-
sevelt Room with Secretary of State
Colin Powell at his side. Behind the
president was a painting of Theodore
Roosevelt, who led the United States
into war with Spain in 1898, on
At the United Nations in New
York, the Iraqi representative,
Mohammed al-Douri, said of Bush,
"It sounds like he wants a resolution
In Baghdad, an Iraqi arms expert
submitted to a private interview with
U.N. weapons inspectors, the first
sign of cooperation in that area.
Bush ticked off a series of accusa-
tions that Powell had lodged on
Wednesday in the U.N. Security
Council, including authorization by
Saddam to his lieutenants to use
"Saddam Hussein was given a
final chance," Bush said, referring to
the resolution approved unanimously
in November by the Security Council
that launched new U.N. inspections.
"He is throwing that chance away,';
the president said.
Pointedly, Bush did not renew past
appeals to Saddam to reveal the
chemical and biological weapons and
the nuclear and missile programs the
United States contends Iraq has.
In Paris, French President Jacques
Chirac said that France's position

Powell works for N. Korea solution
Democrats said yesterday that President Bush, in a push for war against Iraq, is
ignoring a potentially greater danger in North Korea's rapidly advancing nuclear pro-
The White House, however, said it is has "robust plans for any contingencies"
involving North Korea. Secretary of State Colin Powell repeated that the United
States has no plans to attack North Korea, but that Bush "has retained all his
Concern about the nuclear program has grown after North Korea announced
Wednesday it was putting the operation of its nuclear facilities on a "normal footing."
That could mean it is about to produce nuclear weapons.
Bush administration officials have said North Korea's program does not constitute
a crisis, and Powell told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, "I still feel it is
possible to find a diplomatic solution."
Democrats, though, said Bush was not taking the threat seriously enough. In con-
trast with their praise of Powell's presentation Wednesday on Iraq to the United
Nations, they pounced on what they saw as weakness and inconsistency in the
administration's North Korea policy. "Mr. President Bush, please, please, if you don't
want to enunciate it, in your mind Mr. President, treat this as a crisis because it is, if
not contained now," Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware said.

Other possibilities abound, from an accidental triggering of explosive devices

"We have not reached the kind of
organizational level necessary in the
United States," Cruse said.
Elizabeth James, program associ-
ate of CAAS, said as the first acting
director of the newly-formed CAAS
in 1969, Cruse was instrumental in
the program's establishment and
advocated for the center to be rec-
ognized as an academic department
at the University.
"He is the rock upon which
CAAS has been founded," said
Evans Young, LSA assistant dean of
undergraduate education and former
assistant director of CAAS.
He added that Cruse has been a
fighter who has stood up for black
people and black studies.

tration's war on terrorism, Cruse

The Panthers, who dressed in black
and were known for carrying guns,
patrolled the streets at night to
observe police officers arresting

Mahmoud Zahar, a leader of the

that his group is "absolutely" prepared

by the Israeli military presence.
Business leaders blast
Venezuela's business leaders warned
yesterday that foreign currency controls
imposed by President Hugo Chavez
will breed corruption, fuel inflation and
push the nation's fragile economy to the
brink of collapse.
They also suspect Chavez will use the
controls to repress opponents and pun-
ish those who staged an unsuccessful
two-month strike seeking to oust him.
Chavez announced the controls late
Wednesday night, two weeks after sus-

The new controls fix the bolivar
currency's value at 1,596 per dollar

but the government can adjust those

cells to power cars that-he said would

In a National Building Museum
speech, Bush promoted his request for
$1.2 billion in federal money over five
years into hydrogen fuel cell research.
The money is aimed at finding ways to
get the fuel to where it can be used.
Without fueling stations, nobody will
want to buy the cars even when they
land in showrooms a decade or more
from now. "What we do today can
make a tremendous difference for the
future of America," Bush said.
Beforehand, the President spent about
20 minutes watching demonstrations of
cars, a scooter and portable electronics
such as cell phones and lap tops, all pow-
ered by hydrogen fuel cells.
