Top U.S. Republican: 'Unprovoked' Iraq War Would Be Illegal
The House majority leader, Texas Republican Dick Armey, warned today that an unprovoked attack against Iraq would violate international law and undermine world support for President Bush's goal of ousting Saddam Hussein.
The remarks by Mr. Armey are the most prominent sign of Congressional unease that the administration is moving rapidly toward a war against Iraq and were especially striking coming from a leading conservative and a staunch Bush ally.
"I don't believe that America will justifiably make an unprovoked attack on another nation," he said. "It would not be consistent with what we have been as a nation or what we should be as a nation."
The White House had little reaction to Mr. Armey's comments.     8/9/2002
