President Bush spoke to reporters on the morning following an Iraqi SCUD missile attack upon Israel. The SCUD missiles were intercepted by U.S. Patriot missiles before reaching the ground in Israel. Israeli retaliation was expected but unknown at the time of the news conference. President Bush praised Israel for its restraint in not immediately attacking Iraq after the SCUD bombardment, and also pledged the full and unified support of the United States to the members of the U.S. armed forces in the Persian Gulf. President Bush said the air attack against Iraq was going well: “so far, so good.” He also said the U.S. was not targeting Saddam Hussein, and the U.S. forces would prevail. close
