Transcript (Cont. from page 11) forts to escape Cuba. Responding to the crisis with the intention of avoiding a Mariel II, President Clinton ordered the ending of a three decade old policy granting recent political refugees from Cuba automatic political asylum. Instead, Clinton ordered the Navy to start detaining refugees and relocating them at United States Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. After many round about debates with Cuba officials in New York, both sides agreed on a compromised which consisted of United States allowing more legal immigration from Cuba if Castro agreed to patrol his borders in a more strict fash- ion. In Haiti, President Clinton took a more ag- gressive stance. With an elect president inmore than three years in exhile, President Clinton treatened the miltary controled Haitian government (lead by Genernal Cedras) with an all out U.S. invasion. This came after an enomous flow of refuegees, as with Cuba, fleeing dangerously to the United States. The move the scare Haiti with an invasion was not a very popular one among the public and among former Secretary of State James Baker, who told ABC news that, "The U.S. has no vital interest in Haiti ... to risk American lives over." This coinsided with an NBC poll taken during the crisis that asserted that over half of those poll believe that the president was acting out of desperation to boost up his approval rating. Nonetheless, President Aristide return to his rightfull position and democracy was restored in Haiti. The world saw continued fighting in Bosnia as both NATO and UN peace keeping forces failed to hault the blood shed. The United States, not really wanting to get involve, only issued statements calling for cease fires that tended to last a short time. Former President Jimmy Carter again, went to Bosnia to negociate the last cease fire of the year which ended in a hopeful note. However, small battles still took place, which many believe were caused by Bosnian Serb forces. The civil war was in its third year and showing no signs of ending soon. No matter what the one's opinion was on how President Bill Clinton handled himself in foreign affairs, all could agree it was an interestomg year. The first year of NAFTA and the election of Nelson Mandela as President in South Africa reminded the world that there was still hope in parts of the world. However, because of President Clinton's indecisiveness in foreign affairs, a political cartoonist Newsweek summed up Clinton's FP by showing him speaking speaking in Germany saying "Ich Bin Ein Beginner!" Russell Contreas Top Photo Left: Although a referendum for independence from Yugoslavia was passed in 1992, war and desperation continued to be part of life in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Ethnic Serbs' opposition sparked fierce fighting. But as 1994 drew to a close, the fighting continued and negotiations on a peace plan made slow progress. Top Photo Right: After 46 years as enemies. Israel and Jordan made peace and all but ended the threat of another war between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbor. With President Bill Clinton presiding at a White House Mideast Peace ceremony, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and King Hussein of Jordan met in public for the first time, shook hands and signed "The Washington Declaration* that announced: "the long conflict between the two states is now coming to an end. In this spirit the state of belligerency between Isreal and Jordan has been terminated." Bottom Photo: President Clinton signed a $30 billion Crime Bill. The Huge law banned the manufacture, sale and possession of 19 specific types of assault-type weapons. It allowed the death penalty for 60 additional federal crimes, including drive-by shooting and carjacking deaths. As for the money, the law authorizes billions of dollars over six years to build prisons and hire more police. Houstonian 1 995 12 The Issues 13
