After a briefing from Defense Secretary Dick Cheney and Secretary of State James Baker, Mr. Solarz and Mr. Fascell spoke to reporters. Mr. Solarz repeated that the United States would use force in the Persian Gulf if necessary to liberate Kuwait, and that Congress would be well advised to delay debate on the Persian Gulf policy until after Mr. Baker meets with Iraqi Foreign Minister Aziz. Mr. Fascell said that while most Democrats in Congress support the objectives of the president in the Persian Gulf, differences remain as to how the president should go about attaining his objectives - particularly concerning the deployment of troops in the region, and the declaration of war. close
