Bush orders
attack on
missile sites
WASHINGTON (AP) - American and allied war-
planes raided southern Iraq and bombed anti-aircraft
missile sites yesterday in a fiery showdown with
Saddam Hussein, two years after the Persian Gulf War
and a mere week before President Bush leaves office.
The 30-minute, nighttime strike by warplanes from
the United States, France and Britain was accompanied
by an order from Bush dispatching about 1,000
American troops to Kuwait to stand as a tripwire against
any incursion from neighboring Iraq. The bombing fleet
included 80 strike planes and 30 support aircraft.
President-elect Bill Clinton, who was telephoned by
Bush as the attack was getting under way, said, "I think
it was the right decision, done in the right way." He said
"you can't rule out force" after he takes office if
Saddam remains defiant.
"Preliminary information indicates the mission was
accomplished," presidential spokesperson Marlin
Fitzwater said at the White House. "All of our planes
have returned to their bases."
The United States had accused Iraq of a lengthy se-
ries of provocations, including deployment of missile
batteries in a "no-fly zone," the firing of a missile from
an Iraqi plane at an American aircraft and illegal border
crossings into Kuwait.
Iraq condemned the attack as "very uncivilized" but
offered to halt cross-border raids into Kuwait. Saddam,
appearing on Iraqi television in military uniform, said,
"The criminals have come back, carrying their hatred
and their evil with them."
President-elect Bill Clinton, who was telephoned by
Bush before the attack, said through a spokesperson that
he "supports President Bush in every action he has

U.S.-led attack on Iraq provokes
support, opposition and apathy

by David Shepardson
Daily Government Reporter
During a lecture yesterday in the
20th Century American Wars class,
history Prof. Tom Collier read from
a New York Times article about
heightened tensions between the
United States and Iraq.
"It's just a matter of when to
pull the trigger," said Collier, quot-
ing a Pentagon official.
A student who had just heard
news of the U.S. assault told him,
"Professor Collier, we've pulled the
trigger."
As word of the air strike spread
across campus yesterday, students
cheered, jeered and protested in

response.
Many said they were not sur-
prised by the attack, which came
almost two years to the day after
the first Allied air strike against
Iraq in the Persian Gulf War.
But opinions varied on how the
United States should resolve the
situation.
"I don't begin to think that this
could have the effect of reopening
the war," Collier said. "This action
was to ratify our resolve to the
American people. I don't think it
will greatly affect Saddam
Hussein's behavior."
Political science Prof. Jill
Crystal agreed that military action

would not plunge the United States
into a full-fledged war, especially
in the days before Bill Clinton's
administration takes over the White
House.
"It is unlikely that Bush will do
any more than this military action
as the transition of power is under-
way," she said.
Crystal said Iraq's response
would be much like it has been in
the past. "I think they will wait to
see what public reaction will be in
the West and Clinton's reaction."

bly has not contemplated any action
