WASHINGTON -- The United States stiffened its demands against Iraq last night, vowing to continue the allied assault until Iraqi President Saddam Hussein personally and publicly agrees to an unconditional withdrawal in which his troops leave their weapons behind.White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater, speaking to reporters last night as the United Nations Security Council was preparing to convene, stressed that Mr. Hussein would have to "explicitly" accept all U.N. resolutions related to the conflict, including the renouncing of Iraq's claim of annexation of Kuwait and an agreement to make reparations for damage Iraqi occupation forces caused to the emirate.

Esther's Pillow, by Marlin Fitzwater. PublicAffairs. 242 pages. $25. Marlin Fitzwater handled the media for the White House during the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George Bush. He still lives in the Washington, D.C., area, but he has never forgotten his Abilene, Kan., roots. Those roots led to this novel, Fitzwater's first. The plot is based on events of 1911 involving Marlin's great-uncle Jay Fitzwater and great-grandfather the Rev. Levi Fitzwater. It is not a pretty story, and, until recently, Fitzwater had no idea such shame had befallen an ancestor.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M -- President Bush sought yesterday to give wavering supporters of Ross Perot a reason to re-elect him, even as his spokesman denounced the Texas billionaire as a "paranoid person who has delusions" for making dirty-tricks charges against the Bush campaign.With just a week to go before the election, Mr. Bush outlined a "conservative activist" plan for dealing with the economy that he says a second-term executive would be best able to achieve.Struggling to break through the apparent ceiling on his support, Mr. Bush tried to give voters still hesitant about their choice of either Mr. Perot or Democratic nominee Bill Clinton a positive reason for his re-election.

One superpower bit the dust. The Soviet Union self-destructed under the pressure of soaring military expenditure against a constrictive social system that prevented creation of wealth to pay for it. That is not in dispute. Whether the other superpower is following suit, is.Had the Los Angeles riot erupted in Moscow, we would count the days till Yeltsin fell. President Aquino survived in the Philippines because, against expectations, something similar did not occur.President Reagan's military development, particularly the Strategic Defense Initiative, was brilliant in spending the Soviet Union into the ground.

WASHINGTON -- The White House, taking the unusual step of rebutting a comic strip, yesterday dismissed as "phony baloney" assertions that President Bush lists Texas as his official residence to avoid paying state income taxes.The satirical comic strip "Doonesbury" mocked Mr. Bush on Sunday for claiming a Houston hotel room as his home. Cartoon character Zonker Harris, dressed in cowboy garb, invited readers to claim they were Texans to avoid paying a state income tax.Asked about the criticism yesterday, White House press secretary Marlin Fitzwater said the president is justified in claiming a tax-free residency in Texas, although he also has a home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
