Colin Powell, Secretary of State We cannot be shocked into impotence because we are afraid of the difficult choices ahead of us. Powell urged reluctant nations to focus on Iraq's alleged failure to disarm and prepare to weigh the consequences. Next week, UN inspectors will present their findings of 60 days of searching for arms in Iraq. Colin Powell, Secretary of State: However difficult the road ahead is on Iraq, we must not shrink from the need to travel down that road. But not all potential U.S.allies against Iraq are on board. Germany is still unwilling to commit to a fight, Turkey has not consented to letting the U.S. use its aribases for war and China's foreign minister called for giving inspectors more time. Still, as American military forces continue to pour into Persian Gulf, the U.S. insists that there will be an international coalition to fight Saddam Hussein. Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense This business about going it alone or unilateral are nonsense. There a substantial number of countries that are ready to help. Meantime, in Baghdad, the Iraqis agreed to encourage weapons scientists to submit to private interviews with U.N. inspectors, while, in Washington, U.S.officials are hinting they would consider allowing Saddam Hussein to find safe haven from Iraq if that would avoid war.
Donald Rumsfeld, Secretaray of Defense Saddam Hussein could leave tonight...wouldn't that be wonderful? But it's unlikely that Saddam will step aside. Next Monday....the inspector's report may be what seals his fate. Drew Levinson, CBS News New York))

"Are you ready? Find a bear! This breed of dog is bred to hunt grizzly bears and work them like a cow dog works cows."

Since 1996 Carrie and her dogs have worked hundreds of nuisance bears including dozens of grizzlies in the western U.S. and Canada.
"We're teaching the bears what we want them to do which is not to be in developed sites where there are people. In all the years of work we have never had one injury to one of our dogs, not one. And we've never injured a bear."
With the bears in hibernation, Carrie and biologist Nikki Albrecht exercise the dogs.
"Until we began the program, once a bear got into trouble, there was no alternative for the bear other than to destroy him.
