KUWAIT- (AP) - Most of the main players of the Gulf War team were in Kuwait Sunday, celebrating with its leaders and people the 10th anniversary of the end of the war that liberated the emirate from a seven-month Iraqi occupation.

Former U.S. President George Bush, who promised that Iraq's Aug. 1990 aggression "will not stand," and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who is held in very high esteem here for her tough stances against Baghdad's leadership, arrived late Saturday.

They met with the emir, Sheik Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah, whose face never fails to show a broad smile of gratitude and admiration when he meets either of the two.

Retired U.S. Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, who led the international military coalition that fought the war, filled two small bottles with sand from what he called the "liberated beaches of Kuwait" when he first visited the small Gulf country right after the war. Sunday, he was scheduled to watch U.S. troops train with Kuwaitis in the desert not far from the Iraqi border.

Colin Powell was expected to arrive in Kuwait late Sunday. Powell served as the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Saff during the crisis is now the secretary of state in the administration of George W. Bush, the son of the former president.

This small state with a tiny army still depends on its Gulf War allies, mainly the U.S. and Britain, for protection.

The pro-government Al-Anba daily published Sunday a cartoon of a joyous Kuwaiti sticking his tongue out at a jumpy, sweating Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and saying "Welcome Bush," repeating the former president's name 15 times.
