Saddam Hussein s words have been less volatile, but no one believes that the threat to other middle east nations is over. PRESIDENT CLINTON: MY CONCERN IS THAT WE LIMIT SADDAM HUSSEIN S ABILITY TO THREATEN HIS NEIGHBORS, THAT WE DO IT WITH THE NO FLY ZONE AND IN DOING IT WE KEEP OUR PILOTS SAFE.
U.S. pilots are patrolling the no-fly zones and so far there are no new attacks against them to report.
The defense secretary is in the region, consulting with u.s. allies, while some analysts wonder why the u.s. allowed the tight coalition that defeated Iraq in the early 90s to dissipate. PROF.
