Chambliss: Saddam's clock is ticking

February 28, 2003

Albany-- Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss arrived in South Georgia  from Washington, D.C. on Friday.

The Senate Republican says it is a critical day for Iraq, which has agreed to destroy all missiles that violate U.N. restrictions, starting Saturday.

Chambliss says another critcal day comes next Friday, when U.N. weapons inspectors will report their latest findings.

The Senator says Saddam Husseins regime has had twelve years to comply with U.N. resolutions, and his time is running out. "The president is obviously monitoring this very closely, and I expect the president is getting very close to making a decision, this guy has had twelve years to comply with U.N. resolutions, the ball is in his court."

Chambliss says U.S. forces are ready and will be used if Iraq does not fully disarm.
