I am unbelievably incensed about a sentence in Melissa Healy's article (Jan. 22): "The Patriot missile . . . promises to become one of America's premium exports after the war in the Gulf." It is good that we are prepared, but to already be thinking of how we are to make money from these terrible weapons of destruction is unconscionable. It is also stupid to plan again to arm the world. We are in the Gulf ostensibly to correct a situation of arms out of control. We must never let this start again.

I believe the vast majority of Americans will agree with your recommendation to our President that he call a 48-hour pause in the attack to give diplomacy one last chance to induce Iraq to get out of Kuwait. It would be a true measure of President Bush's strength if he does this. Unfortunately, the people of Iraq will not be consulted about their response. All indications are that Hussein exerts absolute authority in Iraq and though he may listen to advisers, he alone can make a decision to withdraw.

The President's stewardship of the Persian Gulf War will soon be put to a major new test. When Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell return from their planned trip to Saudi Arabia, Bush will be faced with the decision to initiate a ground offensive. This will indeed be a threshold call--putting many more lives at risk and involving the United States in a major land war far from our shores.

Was it a blink, or a hoax? Is it the beginning of the end, or just more of the same? Is Iraqi President Saddam Hussein at long last ready for peace, for compliance with United Nations resolutions and for withdrawal from Kuwait? Or is there to be more war, more death, more tragedy?

The Yugoslav government, desperately seeking a way to get NATO to stop its bombing, appears to believe that a political deal with moderate ethnic Albanian leader Ibrahim Rugova may be the key to avoiding a far larger war in Kosovo. The immediate goal of President Slobodan Milosevic is a bombing pause, perhaps granted in return for concessions by Belgrade that could include the release of three U.S. soldiers captured last week on the Macedonia-Kosovo border.
