                                 A BILL


 
   To provide support for North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) 
                       peacekeeping within Iraq.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``NATO Peacekeeping in Iraq Act of 
2003''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The coalition forces have liberated Iraq from the 
        decades-long grip of the terrorist regime of Saddam Hussein, 
        and the Iraqi people now have the opportunity to build a truly 
        representative and democratic society, which would stand as a 
        model for all the countries of the region to emulate.
            (2) There are terrorist organizations and tyrannical 
        regimes that will correctly perceive that such a representative 
        and democratic society in the Middle East will constitute the 
        gravest threat to their existence and continued oppression of 
        the peoples of the region, and will seek to prevent any truly 
        representative and democratic government and society from 
        arising in Iraq by any means possible.
            (3) There may be political strife in Iraq as the people 
        emerge from the domination of Saddam Hussein and the thugs of 
        the Baathist Party, and prolonged unrest and civil strife 
        within Iraq would present a continuing threat to the stability 
        not just of a free Iraq, but of the entire Persian Gulf region.
            (4) There is an immediate need for peacekeeping and civil 
        police forces throughout Iraq to maintain order and prevent 
        interference by terrorists and extremists in the affairs of the 
        newly-free Iraqi people.
            (5) The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) should 
        provide immediate personnel, material and other assistance to 
        establish an international peacekeeping and civil police 
        presence in Iraq to assist coalition forces in promoting 
        security, civil order, and the growth of democracy.

SEC. 3. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

    It is the sense of Congress that the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization (NATO) should immediately begin contributing peacekeeping 
and civil order personnel to promote security and stability in Iraq. It 
is further the sense of Congress that the President should use all 
appropriate diplomatic means to persuade NATO and NATO member nations 
to formally undertake a major peacekeeping and civil order mission in 
Iraq.

SEC. 4. SUPPORT FOR NATO ACTIVITIES.

    (a) In General.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law, there 
are authorized to be appropriated to the Secretary of State 
$100,000,000 for each of the fiscal years 2003 through 2005 to support 
any North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) peacekeeping within Iraq.
    (b) Additional Authorities.--(1) Notwithstanding any other 
provision of law, the President may make available defense articles, 
defense services, and military education and training pursuant to 
section 506 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 to support the 
activities in subsection (a).
    (2) There are authorized to be appropriated to the President 
$200,000,000 for each of the fiscal years 2004 and 2005 to carry out 
paragraph (1). Amounts appropriated pursuant to the authorization of 
appropriations under the preceding sentence shall not be counted 
against any annual funding limitation contained in section 506(a)(2)(B) 
of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961.
                                 <all>
