President Clinton has put off a decision on whether to use force to reopen Iraq's weapons sites to U-N inspectors.
He met with top advisors yesterday at Camp David and asked them to come up with more options.
President Saddam Hussein has declared an end to Iraq's cooperation with the U-N weapons inspectors.
Iraq's trade minister said today his country has suffered so long under the U-N sanctions, it has nothing to fear from new U-S threats.
For six years officials in Lynchburg have tried to cut down on the number of car accidents involving deer.

(( Eddie Burnette and Tommy Dodd are hunting deer.. in the middle of one of Virginia's largest cities.
The two comprise Lynchburg's wildlife management program.. a year- round effort aimed at reducing the size of the Hill City's deer population.
They patrol areas where deer have caused car accidents or where homeowners have suffered property damage from roaming herds.
The program has never experienced an accident, but some residents told city council last week they feel they're as much at risk from the hunting program as they are from the deer.
[IN Q=Our concern is]

((KATHERINE BASS/RESIDENT: THOUGH I'M SURE THOSE HIRED TO SHOOT DEER ARE EXPERIENCED HUNTERS THEY ARE HUMAN AND ARE CAPABLE OF ERROR.))

But police say every precaution is taken to PREVENT mistakes.
The department and the wildlife specialists scout out every location where a permit is issued.. and the hunters never fire a shot if there's even the slightest chance a stray bullet could hit something other than its intended target.
On a given night, these two men might see dozens of deer, but never pick up their rifles.
[IN Q=They just are]
((MAJOR JACK LEWIS/LYNCHBURG POLICE: THEY JUST ARE NOT RISK TAKERS, WHEN YOU BALANCE THE BENEFIT OF MAYBE KILLING THIS DEER VERSUS THE POTENTIAL TO INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.))
[OUT Q=property damage.]
In its six years, Lewis says the program has drastically reduced the number of deer- related car accidents in the city and has also put more than 11 tons of venison on the plates of needy people across the area.
City council may re- examine the program's effectiveness later this week.
