IRAQ AND THE UNITED STATES In the past seven years

there has been a great deal of tension concerning the United

States and Iraq. The United States have been discussing

conducting air strikes against Iraq. The 1991 Gulf War may

not have been as successful as believed. The United States

spent millions of American dollars to support the war effort in

the 1991 Gulf War. Taxpayers money is not the only

expendable thing during the 1991 Gulf War. Many United

States Soldiers are now suffering from an unknown “Gulf War

Illness” that allegedly the government knows nothing about.

The United States is also seeking American support in an air

strike in Iraq, but it is evident that the government is lacking

this support. The United States Government needs to realize

that they are killing Iraqis but the moral, economy and

patriotism of the whole country. The United States is suffering

from homelessness, poverty and hunger. In many cities in the

world including in Iraq people can be found in famine.

However, the United States is spending U.S. tax dollars in

vain. Many congressmen are also unhappy in with the way

the U.S. tax dollars are being spent. Senator John Warner,

Republican Virginia, a senior member of the Senate Armed

Services is very unhappy of the unnecessary spending of the

U.S. dollar. Warner stated: “Based on briefings tax payers

have spent $750 million on the Gulf War effort,” (USA TODAY

2/27/98). This outrage spending could be used to solve the

United States economical burdens, and it would be horrible if

the world’s only remaining superpower uses its awesome

might to slather a stricken little country where hunger is a

daily menace. The “U.S Patriotic Spirit” is at question with the

United States People. At the end of the 1991 Gulf War the

country went into a great recession. Many Americans lost

their jobs and homes. Americans according to a recent CNN

Poll are not supporting an air strike. The poll stated: “41

percent of people favoring an armed strike, with 50 percent

opposed and the rest unsure,” (Charleston Gazette). After the

1991 Gulf War many war veterans have had many medical

problems. One is known as “Gulf War Illness”. The Untied

States Government hid circumstantial information from the

U.S. people. A majority of the troops may have been exposed

to hazardous particles of uranium from shells and wrecked

Iraq vehicles. The vast majority of soldiers who had physical

contact with Iraqi vehicles were on post war missions to clear

the battlefield or to destroy what remained of their equipment.

One soldier Victor Suell, a radio operator with the Marines

had one kidney removed from the effects of the uranium. Suell

stated: “Nobody ever told us to stay away from the vehicles

that might have been contaminated with depleted uranium,”

(USA TODAY 3/02/98). The U.S. Government failed to inform

the soldiers of the dangers of the shelling. What else is the

government failing to bring forward? Is Clinton threatening to

have an air strike to cover up his alleged affair with a former

White House Intern? The U.S. has been through many wars

with the majority of the public support. The United States is

just coming out of a recession. The United States

Government needs to take care of the Gulf War Veterans and

the homeless on the harsh streets in this country. WORK
