SHELBY RESPONDS TO MILITARY ACTION IN IRAQ

Sen. Shelby said, “I am 100 percent supportive of the President’s decision to take action against Iraq. Saddam Hussein and his regime pose an immediate danger to the United States and our allies. He is in possession of weapons of mass destruction–biological and chemical–and he is steps away from developing nuclear capabilities.”

“The world will never truly be at peace while Saddam Hussein remains in power.”

“Our military is second to none. I have no doubt that the men and women of our armed services will swiftly complete their work in Iraq–possibly within the next few days.”
