                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

                             April 8, 2004

   Mr. Dodd (for himself, Mr. Corzine, and Mrs. Boxer) submitted the 
 following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign 
                               Relations

_______________________________________________________________________

                               RESOLUTION


 
Urging the President to immediately instruct the Secretary of State and 
the Secretary of Defense to respectively begin initiating consultations 
with other members of the United Nations Security Council concerning a 
   United Nations Security Council Resolution for Iraq, and with the 
  Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) 
 concerning a mandate for a NATO commitment for security in Iraq, with 
         the goal of securing both not later than May 15, 2004.

Whereas there are currently as many as 150,000 military personnel stationed in 
        Iraq, including more than 100,000 from the United States and 
        approximately 24,000 from coalition member nations;
Whereas United States military personnel in Iraq continue to perform their 
        duties with the highest degree of professionalism, patriotism, and 
        heroism;
Whereas more than 600 United States military service members have lost their 
        lives and more than 2,988 have been wounded in action in Iraq since the 
        beginning of military action in March 2003;
Whereas since March 2003, the United States has allocated at least 
        $110,000,000,000 for military action, relief, reconstruction, and 
        security operations in Iraq;
Whereas on June 30, 2004, the United States is scheduled to turn over control of 
        Iraq to a Transitional Iraqi Government;
Whereas the creation of a stable, secure, and democratic Iraq will strengthen 
        regional, international, and United States national security;
Whereas following recent violent unrest in Baghdad and Fallujah, the United 
        States Central Command Chief, General John Abizaid, asked United States 
        military staff to examine options for sending more troops to Iraq;
Whereas a significant North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) security 
        presence in Iraq would greatly reduce the threat to United States 
        service members currently stationed in that country;
Whereas a United Nations and a NATO presence in Iraq would lessen the financial 
        burden on the United States;
Whereas NATO has played an integral role in efforts to restore and maintain 
        order in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan;
Whereas a comprehensive NATO mandate for peacekeeping operations and a 
        comprehensive United Nations mandate for nation-building in Iraq would 
        greatly increase the legitimacy of the presence of the United States and 
        other members of the international community in that country, as well as 
        the chances of success in establishing a democratic and stable nation 
        for the Iraqi people; and
Whereas such a United Nations mandate will not be achievable without the 
        adoption of a United Nations Security Council Resolution establishing 
        such mandate: Now, therefore be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) applauds the dedication, professionalism, and 
        patriotism of United States military service members serving in 
        Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world, and remains committed 
        to providing them with all the resources that they need to 
        return home safely when their missions are complete;
            (2) reaffirms its commitment to the creation of a stable, 
        secure, and democratic Iraq;
            (3) recognizes the important role that a United Nations 
        mandate to assist the new Iraqi Government and a North Atlantic 
        Treaty Organization (NATO) mandate for peacekeeping in Iraq 
        could play in achieving these goals;
            (4) urges the President to immediately instruct the 
        Secretary of State to begin initiating consultations with other 
        members of the United Nations Security Council concerning the 
        United Nations mandate for Iraq, with the goal of securing a 
        United Nations Security Council Resolution authorizing such 
        mandate not later than May 15, 2004; and
            (5) urges the President to immediately instruct the 
        Secretary of Defense to initiate consultations with the 
        Secretary General of NATO and other NATO members with the goal 
        of securing a decision by NATO not later than May 15, 2004, to 
        deploy forces in Iraq beginning June 30, 2004, in order to 
        assist Iraqi military and security forces and to establish and 
        maintain a security umbrella to facilitate the work of the 
        United Nations and the interim Iraqi government in building 
        democratic institutions and preparing for nationwide elections 
        in 2005.
