Mr. Gephardt spoke to reporters about the resolution he will introduce in the upcoming congressional Persian Gulf debate that he is co-sponsoring with Mr. Hamilton. The resolution supports the continuation of every option available to the United States to pressure Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait short of war until military force is absolutely necessary. Mr. Hamilton spoke on the resolution which allows the use of military force to defend U.S. troops, to protect Saudi Arabia, and to enforce sanctions on Iraq, thus maintaining the military option in the Persian Gulf. Several representatives gave brief remarks supporting the Gephardt-Hamilton resolution. close
