Commissioners pass resolution opposing
Iraq war

Express Staff Writer

The Blaine County Commissioners last week sent a resolution to President George Bush opposing military action in Iraq.

The approximately one-page document, passed unanimously during a meeting Thursday, was also sent to the Idaho congressional delegation and to Blaine County’s state legislative representatives.

Among other things, the resolution states that:

  • Adequate proof of Iraq’s development of weapons of mass destruction has not been presented to the American people.

  • The president should put the country’s youth at risk only when absolutely necessary to protect its survival.

  • An attack on Iraq will increase hatred toward the United States from Muslims.

The resolution was passed a few days after about 150 people participated in a peace march in Ketchum.

According to the Cities for Peace program of the Institute for Policy Studies, a liberal think tank in Washington, D.C., 52 cities and counties around the country have passed resolutions opposing war in Iraq.
