Ex-Joint Chiefs on Gulf Crisis

December 08, 1990

As a near-pacifist, I never thought I would be agreeing with two ex-Joint Chiefs of Staff.

But Jones and Crowe are absolutely right when they advise patience with Saddam Hussein to give the economic sanctions time to take effect. Their warning that a first strike against Iraq would only deepen anti-U.S. sentiment in the Arab world, create new tensions and strain the international alliance against Iraq should be taken to heart by both President Bush and Congress.
