Key Democratic lawmakers agreed Sunday that, despite increasing calls for Congress to express itself on the Persian Gulf, it would be premature to debate and vote on the new offensive buildup of U.S. forces that appears to bring war closer. Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell (D-Me.) said the addition of more than 200,000 Americans to the 238,000 already in the gulf constitutes "the use of the threat of war to prevent war." He said the moves are not a decision to go to war.
