Passed House amended (11/13/1997)

Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that: (1) the current crisis regarding Iraq should be resolved peacefully through diplomatic means but in a manner which assures full Iraqi compliance with United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding the destruction of Iraq's capability to produce and deliver weapons of mass destruction; (2) if military means are necessary to compel compliance, such action should be undertaken with the broadest feasible multinational support, preferably pursuant to a resolution of the Security Council; and (3) if necessary, the United States should take military action unilaterally to compel Iraqi compliance.
