Glaspie directly to Saddam Hussein, ''We have no opinion on the Arab-Arab
conflicts, like your border
disagreement with Kuwait."
''We were reluctant to draw a line in the
sand,'' a senior Administration official said. ''I can't see the American
public supporting the deployment of troops over a dispute over 20 miles of
desert territory and it is not clear that the local countries would have
supported that kind of commitment. The basic principle is not to make threats
you can't deliver on. That was one reason there was a certain degree of hedging
on what was said. The crucial factor in determining the American response was
not the reality but the extent
of the invasion.''
"Secretary of Defense Dick
Cheney, for example, was quoted as telling journalists at a press breakfast
on July 19 that the American commitment made during the Iran-Iraq War to come
to Kuwait's defense if it were attacked was still valid. The same point was
also made by Paul Wolfowitz, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, at a private
luncheon with Arab ambassadors." - By Elaine Sciolino With Michael R. Gordon,
