    &nbsp; AMERICA IS GETTING &quot;SMART&quot; BY SAMI KOHEN

    [37] (MILLIYET)

    Columnist Sami Kohen writes on the change in the US Iraqi policy and its effects on Turkey. A summary of his column is as follows: The Bush Administration intends to change the embargo imposed on Iraq and make them &quot;smarter&quot;. The statements by US Secretary of State Colin Powell following his tour of the Middle East and his recent contacts in Brussels indicate the US will follow a wiser policy towards Iraq. It seems that President Bush does not find it wise to continue with the sanctions imposed for the last 10 years. The new Administration seems to have understood that only the Iraqi people suffered from the embargo imposed, and did nothing to help topple Saddam. It is an important development for Washington to see this fact. During his recent contacts Powell learned that not only the Arab countries, but also countries like Turkey who are close to the US, also expect a change in the old policies. In fact, the US is not thinking of lifting the embargo altogether, but is considering easing the sanctions. According to the new policy economic restrictions which led to the suffering of the Iraqis will be lifted, and smart sanctions which will hamper Saddam's military intentions will be imposed. The details of these policies have not been determined yet. US diplomats say these measures will become clear over the next few weeks and the opinions of friendly countries will be taken into consideration while determining the policy. Turkey is one of those countries. US Assistant State Secretary Edward Walker is coming to Turkey to discuss problems in the Middle East, including the Iraqi policy, with his Turkish colleagues. The message conveyed to him should be, 'The sanctions policy is not wise. It is apparent that it did not yield any results. Therefore, it would be better to change it... Furthermore, do not depend upon the organization uniting the Iraqi opposition gropus(INC)to get rid of Saddam. Secret operations entrusted to an organization where everyobdy is saying something else, may backfire...One of the ways to prevent Saddam's acquiring weapons of mass destruction is to enforce comprehensive controls.' In other words, control at the source is as important as checking the weapons sites and facilities in Iraq, so that Saddam complies with UN Security Council resolutions. Therefore, materiel entering Iraq through indirect paths, including the West, should be stopped. There is one other message Turkey can convey to the US on Iraq. The US should inform Turkey and even consult with her before making a decision including new operations in the no-fly zones. The normalization of relations between Turkey and Iraq provides Turkey the opportunity to give important messages and advice to the Saddam Administration. This could work to the benefit of all parties involved, including the US.&quot; <_ul>
