((
The strike began early Tuesday, and lasted less than an hour.
The pentagon is saying little more than several dozen cruise missiles were launched from both Navy ships and Air Force B-52 Bombers in the region, aimed at unidentified Iraqi military targets, punishment for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's decision to send more than 30-thousand troops into Northern Iraq to fight the kurds.
Yesterday, Hussein claimed his troops were leaving the town of Irbil, the original point of attack....but the White House said there were no signs of the complete withdrawal it demanded, and so the preparations for the onslaught proceeded.
And so did the criticism.
At a campaign rally in Salt Lake City, Arizona Senator John McCain, a foreign policy advisor to republican presidential candidate Bob Dole, blasted the administration's policy in the Persian Gulf. ((SEN. JOHN MCCAIN/R-ARIZONA: FOR SOME TIME NOW, SADDAM HAS BEEN TESTING AMERICAN RESOLVE AND WE HAVE BEEN FAILING THE TEST. INDEED WEAK SIGNALS.....SADDAM HUSSEIN.))
Later dole himself released a statement saying "America and its allies and friends around the world can no longer tolerate Saddam's repeated attempts to erode the restraints that have been placed on his regime and to violently reassert his authority."
Dole also said he stands behind our men and women in uniform.
The president is scheduled to make a formal statement about the attack at
the White House---later on this morning.
