Statement on Strike on Iraq
by John McCain
January 13, 1993

I support the President's decision to launch this action against Iraq in response to Saddam Hussein's failure to comply with United Nations resolutions. His continued failure to comply with international law merits a condemnation of the world and this decisive action by the world community. Once again Saddam Hussein has grossly misjudged the determination of the American people and their leaders. His effort to take advantage of the transition from Bush to Clinton Administrations obviously failed to take into account the bipartisan support of all Americans and our elected leaders.
