Mayor PATTI YORK (St. Charles, Missouri): We are very conservative. We're not going to be the first ones that jump on anything. We let the East Coast try it, then the West Coast takes it up. If it works those two places, then maybe we'll talk about it and make it happen here. But usually we're not the first ones to jump on any idea.

And I think this might be the same situation. You've got a situation in Iraq. I think our government and our leaders know something or suspect something, and I think we're going to be proactive about it. Ms. NANCY MATHENY (Accountant): When President Bush is ready, when he has all the facts and he's ready, I believe he will do whatever needs to be done. WERTHEIMER: Several people we talked to said this war, if it comes, will be different from the Gulf War in 1991. That was on the other side of the world.

And now they're talking about Iran, there's Syria, I mean, you know, North Korea. Where are we going to stop with this? What makes us feel that we have the answer to all of the world's problems? WERTHEIMER: For many people here, of course, the possibility of war is very personal. They have family in the military. At the ladies' tea, we talked to Jackie Schwadmann(ph), whose daughter in law is an Army nurse based now in Kuwait. Ms. JACKIE SCHWADMANN: They call her Grandma over there because she's 54 years old, but she's the best daughter in law a person could have and I'm worried about her. She called me the other day from Kuwait, and it was wonderful to hear her voice. WERTHEIMER: Jackie Schwadmann told us she hates war. I've lived through so many,' she says. She trusts the president, but she regrets the way this conflict has changed her world. Ms. SCHWADMANN: I feel that my grandchildren will never be free like I was. We were free. We never worried about things. Now we must worry about everything. WERTHEIMER: Linda Wertheimer, NPR News, St. Charles County, Missouri.
