Gulf war revisited

Ten years after the Persian Gulf War, policy makers will gather for a conference at U.Va. to draw lessons in crisis management from the 1990-91 conflict. Hosted by the Institute for Global Policy Research, "The Liberation of Kuwait: Dawning of a New World Order?" will be held Feb. 22-24 in Old Cabell Hall auditorium and is being organized by W. Nathaniel Howell, U.S. ambassador to Kuwait during the Iraqi invasion, who is now director of U.Va.'s Institute.

Invited to speak, but not yet confirmed, are Secretary of State Colin Powell, who was then chair of the joint chiefs of staff, and Vice President Dick Cheney, who was then secretary of defense. Other guests include: Lawrence Eagleburger, former secretary of state; Shaikh Saud Nasir Al-Sabah, Kuwait minister of oil and former ambassador to the U.S.; and Mohammad Al-Sabah, Kuwait ambassador to the U.S.

The $300 conference fee has been waived for faculty, staff and students. However, for security reasons, all guests must register in advance through the Center for University Programs at 982-5252 and present a photo ID at the conference.
