The article focuses on the U.S. military policy regarding Iraq. U.S. President George W. Bush has been making efforts to persuade the Congress to authorize war with Iraq. Speaking in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bush noted that the Iraqi regime has chemical and biological weapons and seeks nuclear ones; and that the regime sponsors terrorism. He explained that attempts to deal with Iraq by methods short of war--including sanctions, inspections, and limited military strikes--have not been successful. Bush made a strong case for a war with Iraq.
