                               RESOLUTION


 
   Expressing unequivocal support for the men and women of our Armed 
   Forces who are currently carrying out missions in and around the 
                          Persian Gulf region.

Whereas the President of the United States has ordered military action against 
        Iraq in response to its refusal to comply with international obligations 
        under United Nations Security Council resolutions;
Whereas up to 24,000 men and women of the United States Armed Forces are 
        presently involved in operations in and around the Persian Gulf region 
        with the active participation of British Armed Forces and the support of 
        allies in the region;
Whereas additional United States Armed Forces are being deployed to the region; 
        and
Whereas Congress and the American people have the greatest pride in the men and 
        women of the United States Armed Forces and strongly support them in 
        their efforts: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, by the House of Representatives that--
            (1) the Congress unequivocally supports the men and women 
        of our Armed Forces who are carrying out their missions with 
        professionalism, dedication, patriotism, and courage; and
            (2) the Congress reaffirms that it should be the policy of 
        the United States to support efforts to remove the regime 
        headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the 
        emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime.
