UNITED NATIONS : Debating 'Necessary Means'

THE WEEK AHEAD

November 27, 1990

The United Nations Security Council, with foreign ministers holding down most of the 15 chairs in order to give the debate added authority, weighs a U.S.-backed resolution Thursday authorizing the use of military force to get Iraq out of Kuwait if peaceful measures continue to founder.

Advance drafts of the resolution omit the word "force" in favor of "all necessary means," but the meaning is clear.

The council warms up for the vote with a two-day debate today and Wednesday about Iraqi atrocities in Kuwait. The exiled Kuwaiti government plans to kick off that session.
