OUT Q=News, Kuwait.
(( In a high stakes diplomatic mission through the Persian Gulf arab
states, Defense Secretary Perry is trying to hold together the
collapsing coalition against Sadaam Hussein.
In Kuwait, where he got the friendliest welcome, Perry said Iraq had fired
on coalition aircraft in the no-fly zones six times in the last few days.
PERRY: WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THAT THREAT TO OUR PILOTS, NOR DO WE
BELIEVE WE CAN RELY ON SADAAM HUSSEIN'S PROMISE THAT HE WOULD NOT ATTACK THOSE
AIRPLANES. WE ARE INTERESTED IN ACTION, NOT JUST WORDS.
FENTON HEARD: ARE YOU STILL CONSIDERING FURTHER MILITARY STRIKES AGAINST
PERRY: THAT IS STILL A POSSIBILITY.
But even here, all was not smooth.
The Pentagon had announced Friday that the American armored battalion now
training in the Kuwaiti desert will be reenforced with 5000 men.
But back at Fort Hood, Texas, the designated First Cavalry Division
units were not yet moving.
The Pentagon apparently forgot to ask the Kuwaiti's permission first, and is
now waiting for their O.K.
There seems to be little doubt that Kuwaitis would welcome them, just as
they have welcomed the arrival of 8 powerful Stealth fighter-bombers here.
In a country where vast oil reserves have brought a way of life that is
remarkable by any standard, the Kuwaitis, to a man, see Sadaam Hussein as a
real threat to their security.
KUWAITI MOS WE DON'T TRUST HIM, O.K.? AND WE DEPEND ON AMERICAN, YOU
KNOW, GOVERNMENT AND ARMY REALLY.
A DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE SOURCE SAID THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE NEXT MOVE IS
UP TO SADAAM HUSSEIN. THE MILITARY BELIEVE THEY HAVE HIM BOXED IN, BUT IF HE
MAKES A PROVOCATIVE MOVE, THEY ARE READY. TOM FENTON, CBS NEWS, KUWAIT

It'll be several more days before fire investigators are able to sift
through ashes of three businesses that went up in smoke yesterday.
Small flames still flickered this morning throughout the charred remains of

looking over the debris.
Fairlawn fire chief Buddy Trigg says it may be Tuesday or Wednesday before
investigators can take a look.
Trigg also says a crane will be used to removed the collapsed roof so
investigators can determine where the blaze began.
