In his first address to the nation, the new leader of the Persian Gulf emirate of Bahrain pledged Saturday to follow his late father's pro-Western policies. Sheik Hamed ibn Isa Khalifa took power earlier this month after the death of his father, Sheik Isa ibn Salman Khalifa, 65, who ruled Bahrain for nearly 38 years. The emir, who met recently with U.S. Defense Secretary William S. Cohen, died March 6. Bahrain is a key U.S. ally and hosts the regional base for the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet.

Secretary of State James A. Baker III had a somewhat sobering encounter Sunday with about 4,200 restless and homesick American soldiers in Saudi Arabia, then held discussions about war options with aging members of Bahrain's royal family. Making his second visit in a little more than a month to U.S. forces along the Persian Gulf front, Baker was bombarded with dozens of repetitions of a single question: "When are we going to go home?"

Just outside the U.S. 5th Fleet headquarters in this Persian Gulf oil emirate, teenagers throwing rocks recently clashed with police armed with tear gas and rubber bullets. The disturbances and police roundups lasted for days. But throughout it all, not one brick was hurled in the direction of the American base. That is among the incongruities in this small but strategic country. It has been shaken by 17 months of anti-government protests led by militant Islamic clerics.
