J UUI
by Joanna Broder
The Graduate Employees Organi-
zation (GEO) unanimously approved
an anti-war resolution yesterday,
shortly after forces led by the United
States began bombing Iraq. The res-
olution is a slightly modified ver-
sion of the one the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly (MSA) passed Tues-
day.
The GEO, a union of teaching
assistants and graders at the Univer-
sity, decided to publicize the resolu-
tion both at rallies and in local
newspapers.. The body appointed two
members to read the resolution at
upcoming anti-war rallies.
The body voted to adjourn the
meeting until tonight after Students
Against U.S. Intervention (SAUSI)
hold a rally and determine whether or
not to hold a student strike. There
the GEO plans to discuss its planned
course of action in case of a student
strike.
The group voted to defer further
discussion on whether or not to go
ahead with planned contract negotia-
tions with the University set to start
tomorrow. If the negotiations do go
on, the group will require bargaining
GEO members to make their anti-
war stance clear at the outset of such

L UI IIx
negotiations, and ask the University
to join them in that position.
The body will decide tonight if.
their negotiators should walk away
from Friday's bargaining table if the
University does not comply.
Don Demetriades, a graduate stu-
dent in Philosophy, proposed the
GEO delay contract negotiations un-
til the University comes out pub-
licly against the war.
"I wouldn't be comfortable going
into bargaining where one side
wasn't fully congnizant of how
catastrophic the war is," he said.
"I'm not so sure we should do
that," Bill Shea, a former GEO
member who now works in the'
union office, said. "I think we can'
bargain for better pay with the Uni-
versity without them making a
statement about the war. Other peo@
ple disagree and we'll have to resolven
that at another meeting."'
GE O organizer Ingrid Kock felt"'
differently. "It would be immoral for
the University to continue with
business as usual in light of this'
war," she said.
The GEO office will put a mes-
sage on their answering machine this,'
morning announcing the location of
tonight's meeting.

BUSH'
Continued from Page 1
Iraqi's nuclear potential and
chemical warfare capabilities.
Bush said he had been as-
sured by the top American mili-
tary commander that the air op-
erations were proceeding accord-
ing to plans. He said no ground
forces were involved in the as-
sault.
"I prefer to think of peace,
not war tonight," Bush added.
Toward the close of his ad-
dress, Bush repeated his pledge
that this war "will not be another
Vietnam," promising "our troops
will have the best possible sup-
port and will not be asked to
fight with one hand tied behind
their back."
LSA sophomore Wendy
Shanker reacted strongly to
Bush's Vietnam allusion. "I was
not alive during Vietnam," she
said. "Most of the students here
were not ... I had a mixed reac-
tion of hope that Bush was
telling the truth and fear that he
was not. I hope this will be as
short as possible and spare as
many lives as possible."
While many students hoped
the military action would be
short, they also made it clear
they supported Bush's decision.
"I think what they're doing is
right," said Ken Micklash, a
first-year Engineering student. "I
didn't think Iraq should be al-
lowed to go into another country
and take over. Someone had to
do something."

Many students commented
that Bush's delivery appeared
insincere.
First-year LSA student Matt
Newman said, "Despite Bush's
attempt to convince the Ameri-
can public that it was no longer
possible to wait for military in-
volvement, I think he could have
waited."
Added Matt Weiner, a first-
year Engineering student: "I
thought he preyed on America's
fear by mentioning 'raping and
pillaging' a helpless country."
Michigan state Senator Lana
Pollack (D-Ann Arbor) shared
similar sentiments.
"I think the speech was com-
ing from a man who thought he
had a lot of convincing to do,
not from a man who knew he
had the support of a nation be-
hind him," Pollack said. "The
speech did not just say what; he
had to say why."
Pollack said she does not
agree with Bush's decision to
employ military force at this
point.
"I hope Bush is right," she
said. "I hope he's done the right
thing. I have grave doubts about
the actions he's taken. I am re-
lieved that he isn't using ground
troops at this time, and that we
have not lost any planes of our
own.
"I think now we have to hope
to significantly or permanently
impair their (Iraq's) military
machine. We will have to wait
to see the long term conse-
quences of our actions."

WAR
Continued from page 1
for the long trip north. They also
were armed with cannon and
air-to-air missiles for self-de-
fense.
Earlier, ABC and CNN tele-
vision news reported from
Baghdad there were "flashes in
the sky." Explosions and ma-
chine gun fire could be heard in
the background of their reports.
"The night sky filled with a hail
of bullets from anti-aircraft
guns," CNN's John Holliman
said.
The U.S.-led attack came
one day after the Tuesday mid-
night deadline set by the U.N.
Security Council for an Iraqi
withdrawal from Kuwait. After
that, the council declared, the
assembled international mili-
tary force would be free to drive
the Iraqis from the conquered
oil-rich enclave.
In Washington, White House
spokesperson Marlin Fitzwater,

quoting Bush, said, "The libera-
tion of Kuwait has begun. In
conjunction with the forces of
our coalition partners the
United States has moved under
the code name Operation
Desert Storm to enforce the
mandates of the United Nations
Security Council.
"As of 7 p.m. Operation
Desert Storm forces were en-
gaging targets in Iraq and
Kuwait."
Right to the end, Iraq had re-
mained defiant. Saadi Mehdi
Saleh, speaker of Iraq's legisla-
ture, said yesterday that Sad-
dam, already de-facto military
commander, would "from now
on direct the battle." Saddam
later met with his ruling Revo-
lutionary Command Council.
Saleh had said in an inter-
view that Iraq was ready for
talks with the United States if
U.S. forces are withdrawn from
the Persian Gulf. But he reiter-
ated Iraq's threat to use chemi-
cal weapons if attacked.

said. "This is a racist war against
people of color in the sense that the
majority of troops going over there
are people of color. Forty-four per-
cent of all women there are Afro-

American. We don't have justice at
home."
"There will be difficulty with
Arab-American students and more
racism against Blacks and Arabs,"
Munoz said.
Amidst conflicting opinions,

many students simply felt over-
whelmed at the thought of a new
generation engaging in war.
"I don't know what to think,"
LSA Sophomore Zia Fuentes said.
"I am glad I'm not there, and I hope
my friends don't have to go."
