(( The B52s have been moved to the Indian Ocean Island of Diego Garcia Within striking distance of Iraq.
The Stealth bombers have been moved to Kuwait from where they can strike at Saddam's military machine with greater effect than the cruise missiles did in the previous attacks -- if it comes to that.
But what may be of more political significance is where the weapons have not been based -- not in Turkey... not in Saudi Arabia. So sure is the US that the requests would be refused that Washington doesn't even ask any more. This show down with Saddam is an American affair. WILLIAM PERRY -- SECRETARY OF DEFENSE "IRAQI AIR DEFENSE CREWS ARE PLAYING SOME KIND OF A GAME. THEY WILL VERY SOON LEARN THAT WE ARE NOT PLAYING GAMES."
Where protecting Iraq's Kurdish population may have once been an issue -- it isn't any more. The pro-Saddam faction is now in control in the north. The current rising tensions are about super- power credibility and some potentially deadly gamesmanship. And it's managed to somehow cast the Iraqi regime in an almost sympathetic light.
RIYADH AL-QAYSI -- IRAQI DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER: "IF THEY ESCALATE PROPORTIONATELY OR DISPROPORTIONATELY THAT WOULD NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE COMMITTING ARMED AGGRESSION AGAINST IRAQ IN VIOLATION OF THEIR COMMITTMENT UNDER THE CHARTER AND INTERNATIONAL LAW."
Iraq today warned Kuwait that basing US jets there for any possible attack ammounted to aggression... an act of war, they called it. If the intent of the hard line against Saddam was to make him contrite and behave himself, it isn't working.))
