The missile struck a wall but caused no injuries or serious damage to the building in the Christian suburb of Aukur, said Lebanese Defense Minister Michel Murr.

In Chouaifete, a Druze town in the mountains about 6 1/2 miles south of central Beirut, the word on virtually everyone's lips these days is istinfaar , Arabic for "on the alert." The reason: President Elias Hrawi's determination to extend his authority over all Beirut, including Baabda, the Beirut suburb where the maverick Christian Maj. Gen. Michel Aoun is headquartered just south of Chouaifete. Chouaifete has been in the front line of the war in Lebanon since it erupted in 1975.

Most people in the West would like to see Saddam Hussein removed from power and put on trial as a mass murderer. But this will not solve the problem of Iraq, either for us or for the Iraqis. Dictators like Hussein achieve their astonishing concentration of power through a "party of the new type," as Lenin described it: an organization of systematic terror, able to exert its control over the whole of society, without respect for morality or law.

Philippe Nacousie peered anxiously over the humped-dirt parapet on the Christian side of the Green Line, looking for business. The airport had reopened five days earlier, and Beirutis were coming home. Lebanese children clutching stuffed bears bought in the haven of Cyprus toddled out of Muslim-owned taxis and led their parents through Syrian checkpoints at the Museum Crossing, walking the final 200 yards to an uncertain future. "Today it's quiet," Nacousie said. "Tomorrow?"
