Editorial
War doesn't have to be inevitable
It seems to have come down to
saving face; President Bush is ready to
"kick some ass” and has backed Saddam
Hussein into a comer with his "no room
for pegotiation” rhetoric. Hussein is
poised to call Bush’s bluff. For either to
retreat now would be an suicidal act of
weakness, wimpishness.
The American people and 400,000
U.S. soldiers hold a somber vigil while
U.N. negotiators valiantly try to talk to
the Iraqi president in the hope that an
llth-hour settlement can be reached
before the January 15 deadline.
The United States continues on in
its role as world military police, sending
its young men to battle for truth, justice
War vote: N.C. Roll Call
Here is the North Carolina roll call
vote by which the U.S. House and
Senate gave President Bush the authority
to wa^ war in the Persian Gulf. A "yes”
vote is a vote to authorize the use of U.S.
armed forcesucsuant to the U.N. Secutire
Cundl Resolution 678.
House: (Democrats) Hefner, no;
Jones, yes; Lancaster, ye^ Neal, noi
Price, no; Rose, na, Valemine, yes.
CRepubUcans) BaUenger, ye^ Coble, yes,
McMillan, yes; Taylor, yes.
Senate: Helms (R), yes; Sanford CD),
no.
and the American Way. Would that we
could teach our young people of this
and other nations that the best method
for conflict resolution is peaceful
discussion rather than armed retaliation.
There is no argument that Saddam’s
brutal attack on a practically defenseless
country is reprehensible. Literally raping
Kuwait and its people is abhorant to all.
It is naive to imaging turning the other
cheek in response to his actions. The
United States should answer the call for
help from its allies and neighbors when
they cannot defend themselves. Help,
however, does not always require the
bodies of our young men and women of
the .armed forces.
The UnitedNations Security Council
agreed to economic sanctions against
Iraq. While some complain that Saddam’s
rich coders can withstand the sanctions
for as long as we wish them to be in
effect, time would appear to be on the
side of the sanctions working. Reports
from western hostages freed from Iraq
and Kuwait suggest that Iraqi soldiers
are indeed beginning to su^er from
dimished food and supplies.
While Saddam claims his war-hardy
troops will crush the American forces
with little trouble, all is not well within
his ranks: six Iraqi pilots took an AWOL
trip last week, landing their fighter jets
in Saudi Arabia.
Give it time, Mr. President Congress
approving a declaration of war doesn’t
mean the American people want you to
take its offer. We thought we elected a
kinder, gentler man. We fear we have
elected Rambo.
