new round of cease-fire talks

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia (AP)
- In a second round of cease-fire
talks, allied commanders met with
Iraqi military commanders yester-
day and told them they cannot
move their warplanes inside Iraq
for any reason, a top U.S. official
Meanwhile, the secretary of the
Army, Michael Stone, said Ameri-
can forces will remain in the Per-
sian Gulf beyond the July 4 date
set by President Bush as "a spe-
cial day of celebration for our re-
turning troops."
In another development yester-
day, 500 Iraqi prisoners of war
were returned to their country
through a remote Saudi Arabian
border outpost, bringing to about
1,900 the number repatriated since
hostilities ended.
The Central Command said a

delegation headed by Maj. Gen.
Robert B. Johnston,. the chief of
staff, met with 10 Iraqi military of-
ficers at 1 p.m. (5 a.m. EST) in
U.S.-occupied Safwan in Southern
"The talks centered on cease-
fire agreements," the command
said in a communique. "This meet-
ing was a continuation of previous
military discussions. In the past
several days, the U.S. has learned
that the Iraqis have flown some of
their military airplanes."
The command said this was
clearly a violation of the terms of
a temporary cease-fire set by Gen.
H. Norman Schwarzkopf, the U.S.
commander in the Gulf, at the first
round of peace talks two weeks
ago in Safwan.
"Now, the Iraqi military has in-

dicated that it intends to fly morb
airplanes, to move them around
within Iraq," the command said.
"This, too, would violate the terms
of the temporary cease-fire."
The meeting was held to hear
why the Iraqis want to fly some of
their aircraft, U.S. officials said.
The command said it would con-
sider the request and respond ap-
propriately. Its communique on the
meeting yesterday gave no details
of what took place or what the U.S.
response was.
However, Secretary of State
James A. Baker III said yesterday
the U.S. government had refused
Iraq's request to move the war-
planes. He said the denial came in
the past 24 hours but would not say*
how it was communicated.

He told reporters the issue was
larger than his political-'future.
e "It is the fate of the people, of

hundreds of peoples, of such a
great state, and if you will,the
fate of civilization," said the So-
viet leader, as his wife, Raisa,
stood at his side.
He has repeatedly tried to turn
the referendum into an issue of pa-
triotism, of preserving the mother-
land for which millions lost their

Gorbachev's chief political ri-
val, Russian Federation President
Boris Yeltsin, called the referen-
dum question ambiguous and ac-
cused the Kremlin of trying to
scare people into approving it.
Yeltsin refused to say how he
voted, but he made clear he differs
sharply with Gorbachev over the

Janise Hurtig, a member of the
Task Force on Women and the War
in the Gulf, which organized the
teach-in, said, "The horrors and
atrocities of the war have not disap-
peared. The elaborate military and
apparatuses that staged this war are
still in place.
"At the same time the peace
movement is being portrayed as a
failure, and the anti-war activists are
feeling disillusioned and disempow-
ered and silenced," she added.
Women are among the first

groups to be silenced by the media
in repressive times, Hurtig asserted.
Raymond concurred that the me-
dia never reflected alternate view-
points, and said women are the hope
for peace. "In order to look for peace,
I think it's women that will lead the
way because of the way we've been
socialized," she said.
Because the "male-dominated me-
dia" focuses on the strategic aspects
of war, this teach-in was distinct
since it was from a women's per-
spective, said Natural Resources
graduate student Otto Gonzales.
"Since it's a women-sponsored
teach-in, there was more of a ten-
dency to look at the effect on people
and children," he said. "You could
see everyone was speaking from the
heart, and beyond that people were

willing to ask questions that go be-
yond what was asked in the media."
Among the questions raised,
included this one by Dalgamouni,
"We all come from somewhere. We
are all born on this planet Earth. We
have the right to exist in dignity and
freedom. Is it too much to ask?"
After attending a workshop led by
a Palestinian and a Jewish woman,
co-Leader of the Progressive Zionist
Caucus Lara Saidman said, "It was
inspiring to see them relating even
on a personal level to each other."
The teach-in included three work-
shop sessions focusing on specific
issues, ranging from women and Is-
lam to feminist perspectives of the
war. The teach-in ended with a ses-
sion for planning future activities.

"I think he could stand up on a
platform with Bush and come off
as presidential," Markus said.
"This is really his .last shot; he
doesn't have anything to lose."
Many had speculated that New
York Governor Mario Cuomo and
Sen. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) would
throw their hats into the 1992 race,
but Markus said he would be sur-
prised if either one ran.
"They just don't see it as worth
it. It's really a long shot for
Democrats in 1992," Markus said.
Eldersveld added that both politi-
cians did not do as well as ex-
pected in their last election bids
on the state level.
Sens. Albert Gore (D-Tenn.)
and Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) and House
Majority Leader Richard Gephardt
(D-Mo.) are also possibilities. But
one thing candidates must consider
before announcing their intentions
is how they appear after the Gulf
crisis, Kingdon said.
Nunn, for example, scheduled
hearings against fighting in the
Gulf. After a quick conclusion to
the war, activities such as Nunn's
could be labeled "un-American"
by competitors.

"That would just dog him th4
whole campaign," Kingdon said of
Nunn's pre-war activities.
Kingdon grouped potential
Democratic candidates into three
categories: "sacrificial lambs";
people running in 1992, but aiming
for 1996; and candidates who re-
ally think they have a chance
against Bush.
Although candidates running in*
the last category may seem like a
long shot, professors stressed that
elections are still more than a year
a way, and -that there is always a
chance that the tables may turn on
"The public's attention span is
very short, and especially in the
U.S., tends to focus on home is-
sues," Markus said. By the time*
November of 1992 rolls around, the
public will care more about eco-
nomic, environmental, and new in-
ternational issues than, about
Bush's victory in the Gulf, he said.
"I think there's a lot of hop(
that Bush will make a mistake,'
Goldman said.
The Democrats have their wort
cut out for them, and it's not likely
they'll be able to pull it togethe:
