Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini made a rare appearance Tuesday to celebrate the birth in the year 571 of the Islamic Prophet Mohammed, saying, "He made war, so we should make war." Khomeini, in broadcasts monitored outside the country, made no direct reference to the U.S. armada patrolling the Persian Gulf off Iran's coast but called on his countrymen to imitate the prophet who sent his new religion out from the Arabian Peninsula 13 centuries ago.

The United States and its U.N. allies launched another limited air strike against Iraq on Monday as the Bush Administration sought to maintain pressure on the Iraqi regime in the final hours before Wednesday's presidential inauguration. The Pentagon said 69 allied aircraft, including British and French warplanes, knocked out Iraqi air defenses in the country's northern and southern "no-fly zones," and an American F-15 was believed to have shot down an Iraqi MIG-25 fighter that threatened it.

Secretary of State George P. Shultz assured King Fahd on Saturday that the United States will help Saudi Arabia and its smaller Arab neighbors defend themselves against escalating Iranian attacks, which have drawn them into the Iran-Iraq War. Shultz met with the Saudi monarch for nearly three hours at Fahd's palace in this Red Sea port a day after Iran attacked a U.S.-registered tanker in the Persian Gulf, a strike that raised widespread speculation about U.S. retaliation.

At least five Iraqi missiles were fired over Kuwait on Thursday, military officials said, and the wailing of air raid sirens and the sight of citizens scrambling for shelter dampened the bravado many Kuwaitis had felt just a few hours earlier. Some of the missiles were shot down and others fell harmlessly in the desert, but the attacks unnerved many Kuwaitis. "We thought it would all be easy," said Hamad Mohana, 45, an engineer on his way to a mosque. "It doesn't look quite like that anymore."
