Disarmament rests upon Hussein's choice
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Iraq's parliament rec-
ommended yesterday that President Saddam Hussein
reject the new U.N. weapons inspection resolution,
but the Iraqi leader's son offered a way out - make
Arabs part of the U.N. team.
Odai Saddam Hussein's proposal, which echoes
one from the Arab League, didn't impress Washing-
ton. The United States insists Iraq accept the U.N.
resolution without quibbling in order to avoid war.
The final decision rests with Saddam, who must
respond to the United Nations by Friday.
"There's nothing in this resolution that is nego-
tiable," Sean McCormack, President Bush's
spokesman, said in Washington.
Bush scoffed at the Iraqi parliament's rejection of
the U.N. resolution.
"If Saddam Hussein does not comply to the detail
of the resolution, we will lead a coalition to disarm
him," Bush said yesterday in Washington.
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said he would
be happy to accept Iraq's response to the U.N. resolu-
tion anytime before the end of the day Friday, the
"We haven't fixed any precise time, but I think
everybody will be satisfied if we got a letter ... by
the end of the day on the 15th," Annan told reporters.
Iraqi representatives, who must pledge loyalty to
Saddam to earn a place in the 250-seat parliament,

LONDON (AP) - A U.S.-led war
against Iraq with its massive oil
reserves would probably inflict only
modest and temporary pain on the
world economy, analysts say, providing
the conflict did not drag on and spread
throughout the region.
The immediate economic effect of
hostilities would be a disruption in the
production and export of Iraqi crude
oil. Baghdad's reserves rank second in
size to those of Saudi Arabia.
"The market is fairly laid back about a
short, sharp and relatively confined con-
flict," said Keith Morris, an oil industry
analyst at French bank BNP Paribas.

An attack on Iraq is widely expected
to cause oil prices to spike at $30 or

NEWS IN BRIEF
Netanyahu voices plan to oust Arafat
Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said yesterday that if he becomes prime
minister in January elections, his top priority would be to force Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat into exile.
Netanyahu's remarks, which drew cheers at the Likud party convention yester-
day night, put him at odds with his boss, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who has
sought to marginalize Arafat but has not made any public statements about driv-
ing him out.
"The first order of business of the next government needs to be to expel this
man," Netanyahu said in the televised speech.
"I promise you that as prime minister I will expel Arafat' he said. "I think this
is an absolute condition to eliminate terror."
Netanyahu is challenging Sharon for the party leadership and has long called
for Arafat's expulsion. His remarks have taken on added significance since he
joined Sharon's caretaker government last week.
Sharon's Cabinet has discussed the possibility of sending Arafat into exile, but
has refrained from taking such action.
Sharon spoke immediately after Netanyahu and did not specify any steps he
might take against Arafat.
Covert operations will expand in Iraqi war
The secret side of the U.S. military's war on terrorism is quietly growing.
The Pentagon is planning to expand its use of special operations troops, includ-
ing those that operate covertly in tandem with the CIA's paramilitary force, offi-
cials and private experts say.
Special operations forces played a critical role in toppling the Taliban regime in
Afghanistan last fall and they almost surely would figure prominently in the earli-
est stages of a U.S. military action in Iraq, coordinating with local forces opposed
to Saddam Hussein and hunting for Scud missile launchers.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld believes the military needs to improve its
ability to find and track terrorists around the globe and to take decisive action
against them. His moves toward that goal have caused some friction with the CIA
and led to concern among some that the Pentagon's civilian leaders will only gath-
er and act on those pieces of intelligence that they want to hear and deliver to the
Bush White House. Officially, the Pentagon does not discuss its covert capabili-
ties, but indications of Rumsfeld's interest in this shadowy area are apparent in a
recent study by an advisory group.

High Court reviews
library Internet case
The Supreme Court said yesterday it
will decide if the government can
restrict Internet surfing at public
libraries, the third case pitting free-
speech concerns against efforts to
shield children from online pornogra-
phy to reach the justices.
The court will resolve whether feder-
al funding can be stripped from
libraries that don't install filters on
computers to block sexually explicit
The decision would affect more than
14 million people a year who use public
library computers to do research, send
and receive e-mail, and, in some cases,
log onto adult sites.
A three-judge federal panel in Penn-
sylvania ruled last spring that the Chil-
dren's Internet Protection Act violates
the Constitution's First Amendment
because the filtering programs also
block sites on politics, health, science
and other nonpornographic topics.
DeLay's hard stle
may soften to change
Soon to take over the House majori-
ty leader's office, Republican Tom
DeLay is moving up to a position
where his hard-nosed, take-no-hostages
approach to politics may not fit his job
title. Even friends say DeLay, already
viewed by some as the most powerful
Republican in Congress, will need to
adopt a softer style.
"You are going tosee a kinder, gen-
tler Tom DeLay'" said Grover Norquist,
president of Americans For Tax Reform
and a conservative movement leader.
DeLay, 45, is unopposed in his effort
to succeed retiring Majority Leader
Dick Armey, another Texas Republican.
DeLay will officially become No. 2 in
the House GOP leadership behind
Speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois
when the party caucuses today.
"It's a different role," DeLay said in
Butler thief scandal
drags Prince Charles
After more than a week of silence,
Prince Charles waded into the contro-
versy that followed the abrupt end of
former royal butler Paul Burrell's theft
trial, ordering an investigatiOn' of his
household's role in the affair.
Charles' private secretary Sir
Michael Peat announced yesterday that
Charles told him to review questions
raised by the trial. The news came as
Burrell's tabloid story, the latest in a
string of royal servants' tell-alls, contin-
ued to provide grist for gossip.
Peat also plans to examine whether
the palace covered up allegations that a
former member of the prince's staff
raped a male colleague.
"The Prince of Wales has instructed
me to undertake this inquiry without
fear or favor," Peat said. "Concerns
have been raised in the newspapers.
