Bush launches Iraqi attack as Clinton arrives in Washington Paul West The Baltimore Sun WASHINGTON Even as his successor was enroute to the nation's capital to claim power, President Bush unleashed a missile attack against Iraq Sunday in an eerie replay of the beginning of the Persian Gulf war. Bush's decision to send Iraq "a political and diplomatic" message in the final 72 hours of his presidency drama tically overshadowed President-elect Bill Clinton's gala arrival in Washington. Two years to the day after the start of the Gulf war, Americans turning on their television sets Sunday saw pictures of tracer bullets filling the night sky over the Iraqi capital. That footage alternated with shots of Clinton's carefully choreographed arrival in the U.S. capitol, where he was greeted by hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic citizens and a spectacu lar fireworks show. Clinton aides issued a statement from the president-elect strongly supporting Bush's latest actions. "Saddam Hussein's continuing provocation has been met by appropriate and forceful response. I fully support President Bush's actions," the statement said. "Saddam Hussein should be very clear in understanding that the current and the next administration are in complete agreement on the necessity of his fully complying with all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions." Buthopingto build a crescendo of public enthusiasm for his presidency with Sunday's inaugural kickoff, Clinton avoided any direct mention of the attack in his public comments. U.S. officials strongly hinted that further military action could be mounted against Hussein's regime before Bush's term expires at noon Wednesday. And Clinton himself has indicated he is prepared to take military action once he takes office, if Hussein decides to test him. Sunday night, the United Nations turned down Iraq's latest conditions for allowing weapons inspectors to fly into the country, raising the possibility of further retaliation. Iraq had offered to let U.N. flights passover the southern "no-fly" zone if the United States and its allies stopped all air operations over Iraq during the flights. White House spokesman Mar-lin Fitzwater said Sunday's attack was designed to make "a political and diplomatic point," that Iraq must comply with all restrictions imposed by the U.N. after the Gulf war. "It is the Iraqi leadership that bears full responsibility for today's events," said the president's chief See IRAQ, on Page 8 4-year in doubt David J. Madden Editor in Chief UVCC's four-year expansion plan is being held "hostage" according to UVCC president Kerry Romesberg and several local legislators.The situation began after the Board of Regents met last month and decided, on Educational Commissioner Ralph Kerr's recommendation, that they would not support the four-year plan unless the statelegislature would increase the higher education budget enough to fund 70 percent of enrollment growth state-wide. Governor Bangerter's current budget proposal would only fund 5,272 new students, or 45 percent of the new growth. Kerr's proposal would up the legislatures cost to $10 million more than the $19 million proposed by Bangerter. This ultimatum for a budget increase is upsetting for local legislate rs,and school administrators who have been pushing and planning for the expansion for over a year now. Romesberg's original proposal was an eight degree plan. The Regents whittled down the proposal to three degrees, however, in their November meeting. The Regents also stipulated that the money for the expansion would have to be new money, and not come at the expense of other institutions. Utah County legislators agreed to come up with the $500,000 in new money that Romesberg's plan called for in projected first year expenses, but coming up with the $10 million asked for by the Regents may prove difficult, making the outcome of the four-year plan questionable. According to the Deseret News, Sen. Craig Peterson, R-Orem, said, "They're holding us hostage, I don't know what else to say." President Rhomsberg was also reported as being "disheartened" and "discouraged" by the situation.The legislature meets this month and it is likely that the issue will be decided soon.
