Green Speaks on Military Conflict with Iraq
March 20, 2003
Washington, DC - Congressman Gene Green made the following statement today regarding the War against Iraq:
The decision to go to war is a serious one. The President has now determined that military action is necessary and we are united in one fight.
We all agree that Saddam Hussein must be disarmed and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq.
We stand behind our courageous men and women in uniform who will bear the burden of this military action and we will ensure that our forces have the resources they need to win the war.
I will support supplemental funding that the Administration will request to support the war effort.
As we take action in Iraq, we must not lose our focus on fighting terrorism abroad and at home. We must maintain the international coalition that has worked with us to fight terrorism throughout the world.
