A hearty amen to Schneider. Now that our country is gradually recovering from its attack of postwar euphoria and yellow ribbon fever, questions are being asked about what appears to have been our Pyrrhic victory in the Persian Gulf. As the dust raised by our tanks and carpet bombing settles, Americans are going to begin wondering just what was settled by our blitzkrieg against the Iraqi paper tiger. For all the instant gratification produced by our massive show of might, epilogues are sure to be written that reveal ulterior motives by the Bush Administration far less noble and simple than the four principles stated by the President last August.

The broad trade embargo that President Bush imposed on Iraq is not expected to have a major impact on that country's economy, analysts said Thursday, and Washington cannot push for worldwide sanctions without risking a recession at home. In theory, analysts said that Iraq's heavy economic dependence on selling oil abroad should make it highly vulnerable to the kind of economic sanctions that Bush--and other American Presidents--historically have relied upon to achieve their foreign policy goals.

It was an open-and-shut case. Kuwaiti cops showed up at the dealer's house and seized more than 22 pounds of cocaine and 165 pounds of hashish. The suspect was accused of drug trafficking and, a few months later, sentenced to death. But the convicted drug dealer, Talal Nasser al Sabah, was no ordinary Kuwaiti -- he was a member of the Persian Gulf kingdom's ruling family.

Jordan's King Hussein met with two old rivals from the Palestine Liberation Organization shortly before they joined other pro-Iraqi groups Monday in a call to "strike American interests everywhere" if U.S. troops attack Iraq. Hussein met with George Habash and Nayef Hawatmeh, who head Marxist factions of the PLO and have a long history of supporting international terrorism. The Jordanian government announced the meeting Monday and said it took place late Sunday.

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright wrapped up her whirlwind tour of the Mideast and Europe on Tuesday without winning a united mandate from U.S. allies to launch what could be the most punishing military strike against Iraq since Operation Desert Storm. Yet, in key areas, the United States achieved more than it expected in six days of consultations with 10 allies over a response to Baghdad's refusal to comply with U.N. disarmament efforts.

I stopped by Dr. Bill Anderson's house in Laguna Beach the other day to talk to him about Saudi Arabia, from where he recently returned. We ended up by spending most of our time talking about his lifetime fantasy--which he also lived out recently--of returning to the American frontier. Anderson is a 46-year-old general practitioner who spent six years as the director of student health services at UC Irvine.

As President, Bill Clinton says he would transform American foreign policy--making economic competitiveness our main international goal, cracking down harder on foreign barriers to U.S. exports and promoting democracy's spread around the world. "We have to organize our thoughts, our policies and our government . . . (to) focus on the economic consequences of every decision we make, because that is the national security issue of the 1990s," the Democratic candidate declares.

The Soviet Union said early today that Iraq has agreed to withdraw its troops from Kuwait after a cease-fire in the Persian Gulf War if there is agreement to lift U.N. resolutions, including economic sanctions against Baghdad and a demand for war reparations. President Bush said he has "serious concerns" about the proposal but will study it.
