TWENTY-SECOND LEGISLATURE, 2003

 

STATE OF HAWAII

 
   


HOUSE RESOLUTION

 

EXPRESSING STRONG SUPPORT FOR u.S. POLICY IN CONTAINING AND DISARMING THE ROGUE STATES OF IRAQ AND nORTH kOREA THROUGH THE UNITED NATIONS AND WITH THE SUPPORT OF ALLIES AND FRIENDS.

 

WHEREAS, the people of Hawaii have always been taught and attempted to live the spirit of Aloha showing kindness, love, and generosity towards their fellow man, but have always risen to the occasion of defending their country when it has been threatened by outside forces; and

WHEREAS, the rogue states of North Korea led by Kim Jong Il and Iraq led by Saddam Hussein, and terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda and Islamic Jihad have made the world a very dangerous place to live; and

WHEREAS, in 1991, the United States provided the leadership and the means to maintain peace, security, and stability for the world by stopping and ousting the Iraqi invasion of the sovereign state of Kuwait; and

WHEREAS, the Hawaii Legislature strongly supported Operation Desert Storm that ousted the Iraqi invaders from Kuwait in House Concurrent Resolution No. 2, dated January 18, 1991, and the Hawaii House of Representatives reaffirmed its support of the United States' policy for peace and reconciliation in the Middle East in House Resolution No. 106, dated March 12, 1991; and

WHEREAS, in 1994, the United States defused the North Korean threat of nuclear development in an agreement brought about by the mediation of former President Jimmy Carter; and

WHEREAS, the city of New York stood tall in withstanding the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001; and

WHEREAS, the people of the United States rallied behind President George W. Bush's fight against Al Qaeda, which led to the destruction of its network in Afghanistan and its liberation from religious fanaticism; and

WHEREAS, the defeat of the Iraqi aggression in 1991 and the Al Qaeda network in 20012002 owes much of its success to the leadership of the United States in marshalling the support of many nations, including Russia and China, and worldwide public opinion, especially the people of Afghanistan who welcomed their delivery from the Taliban; and

WHEREAS, the United States is also approaching the current North Korean crisis with the same positive, multilateral approach with the support of neighboring countries and allies, South Korea and Japan, and the cooperation of China and Russia; and

WHEREAS, the United States has secured the approval of the United Nations in the current intensive arms inspection operation in Iraq and is seeking the support of NATO allies and major powers in disarming and neutralizing Iraq; and

WHEREAS, neither the nations of the world nor public opinion is supporting the United States in seeking a unilateral military solution in Iraq because they do not perceive the provocation or threat that existed in 1991 when Iraq invaded and occupied Kuwait; and

WHEREAS, a unilateral military solution, specifically, a preemptive strike against Iraq, is fraught with many dangers such as a possible igniting of a clash between Muslim and Christian nations; a disruption of oil supply and prices, which have unknown consequences to the world economy, including the economy of the United States; an intensification of the Arab-Israeli conflict; a possible incitement to other nations to settle scores unilaterally; and a rekindling of the national divisiveness prevalent during the Vietnam War; and

WHEREAS, Hawaii suffered economically in the aftermath of Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and the downturn in tourism following the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and will likely suffer similar economic consequences in a new Iraqi War or a conflict on the Korean Peninsula; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED by the House of Representatives of the Twenty-second Legislature of the State of Hawaii, Regular Session of 2003, that this body expresses its strong support for U.S. policy in containing and disarming the rogue states of Iraq and North Korea through the United Nations and with the support of allies and friends; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this body:

(1) Reaffirms House Concurrent Resolution No. 2, dated January 18, 1991, and House Resolution No. 106, dated March 12, 1991, supporting the men and women in our armed forces fighting in Operation Desert Storm and praising its success in ousting the Iraqi invaders from Kuwait;

(2) Restates unequivocally its strong commitment to collective security through the United Nations, as so nobly expressed by the men and women in Operation Desert Storm from the United States and twenty-seven coalition partners;

(3) Strongly supports the President's positive policy in seeking a dialogue, in concert with our allies, South Korea and Japan, and with neighboring China and Russia, to have North Korea give up its nuclear program and to institute appropriate international safeguards, including on-site United Nations inspection and a United States pledge of "no first strike";

(4) Strongly supports the President's policy of containing and disarming Iraq as a threat to world peace and security, particularly the current United Nations arms inspection to find and destroy Iraqi arms of mass destruction;

(5) Expresses its strong concerns and reservations for a unilateral United States military solution, such as a preemptive strike on Iraq with only the support of Israel and the United Kingdom in the face of opposition and reservations from world public opinion, including that of the American people; and

(6) Strongly supports President George W. Bush in continuing the current policy of working with and through the United Nations, seeking the support and assistance of both allies and interested powers, such as China and Russia, and explaining to and seeking the understanding and support of the American people;

and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Governor Linda Lingle is asked to convey to President George W. Bush the strong support of the House of Representatives:

(1) For the men and women of our armed forces and their families;

(2) For his efforts in fighting terrorism and rogue states;

(3) For using approaches other than a unilateral military solution; and

(4) For using a multi-national approach to find a solution to this problem through the United Nations;

and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Hawaii's Congressional delegation is also requested to convey to the officers and members of the United States Congress the views presented in this Resolution; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this Resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the United States Congress, Hawaii's Congressional delegation, and Governor Linda Lingle.
