Congressmen React to War News

As the nation prepares for war, Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston says it's the right thing to do.

"It's a very serious situation, and I'm sorry that the UN has decided not to do its job, but the US is going to stand against oppression," Kingston said when we spoke with him at yesterday's St. Patrick's Day parade in Savannah. "And that's why we have 18,000 soldiers just from the Thrid Infantry that aren't with us today."

US District 12 Representative Max Burns also agrees with las night's decision. He says President Bush has done everything he could to get Iraq to disarm and it's time now for action.

"We've got a tough job, we've got to deal with the situation," Burns said. "I'll support the President he's doing a great job. He's tried to build a strong coalition. He's done that, it's just time to take care of business."
