WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld signed a deployment order yesterday sending about 35,000 new troops, half of them Marines, to the Persian Gulf region, Pentagon and military officials said. The detailed order, described as several dozen pages long, involved the largest number of military personnel yet as the Pentagon masses troops, warships and aircraft around Iraq to pressure President Saddam Hussein to disarm - and to prepare for attack, should President Bush order the nation to war. By including about 17,500 Marines, the order sends a significant number of the military's mobile and hard-hitting ground troops - who travel with attack planes and helicopters - toward Iraq.

Dan RodricksITOLD MARTINA Burger, who was very accommodating and who gave me more of her time than I ever expected, that I would not debate the war in Iraq with the grieving mother of a Marine who was killed there. I oppose the war, she doesn't. But I never argue with the next of kin, even if they seem willing to engage the subject, as Martina Burger did yesterday. That's not why I contacted her at her house in Port Deposit. Sometimes, you just want to talk and learn a little more about a young man, like Marine Cpl. Dale Burger Jr., who died Sunday in the Fallujah operation.
