 Commending the President and the Armed Forces of the United States of 
                                America.

Whereas Saddam Hussein has failed to comply with United Nations Security Council 
        Resolutions 678, 686, 687, 688, 707, 715, 949, 1051, 1060, 1115, 1134, 
        1137, 1154, 1194, 1205, 1284, and 1441;
Whereas the military action now underway against Iraq is lawful and fully 
        authorized by the Congress in Sec. 3(a) of Public Law 107-243, which 
        passed the Senate on October 10, 2002, by a vote of 77-23, and which 
        passed the House of Representatives on that same date by a vote of 296-
        133;
Whereas more than 225,000 men and women of the United States Armed Forces are 
        now involved in conflict against Iraq;
Whereas over 200,000 members of the Reserves and National Guard have been called 
        to active duty for the conflict against Iraq and other purposes; and
Whereas the Senate and the American people have the greatest pride in the men 
        and women of the United States Armed Forces, and the civilian personnel 
        supporting them, and strongly support them in their efforts: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) commends and supports the efforts and leadership of the 
        President, as Commander in Chief, in the conflict against Iraq;
            (2) commends, and expresses the gratitude of the Nation to 
        all members of the United States Armed Forces (whether on 
        active duty, in the National Guard, or in the Reserves) and the 
        civilian employees who support their efforts, as well as the 
        men and women of civilian national security agencies who are 
        participating in the military operations in the Persian Gulf 
        region, for their professional excellence, dedicated patriotism 
        and exemplary bravery;
            (3) commends and expresses the gratitude of the Nation to 
        the family members of soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and 
        civilians serving in operations against Iraq who have borne the 
        burden of sacrifice and separation from their loves ones;
            (4) expresses its deep condolences to the families of brave 
        Americans who have lost their lives in this noble undertaking, 
        over many years, against Iraq;
            (5) joins all Americans in remembering those who lost their 
        lives during Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm 
        in 1991, those still missing from that conflict, including 
        Captain Scott Speicher, USN, and the thousands of Americans who 
        have lost their lives in terrorist attacks over the years, and 
        in the Global War on Terrorism; and
            (6) expresses sincere gratitude to British Prime Minister 
        Tony Blair and his government for their courageous and 
        steadfast support, as well as gratitude to other allied nations 
        for their military support, logistical support, and other 
        assistance in the campaign against Saddam Hussein's regime.
