In The News

Unless Iraq surrenders or strikes a deal, The United States plans to unleash a ground, air and sea assault against Iraqi troops in Kuwait and southern Iraq. 

Iraq offers to withdraw from Kuwait if the United States and its allies meet several conditions, but the offer was deemed null. President Bush rejected the plan, calling it a “cruel hoax.”

Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev in a surprise attempt to avert an approaching ground war between Iraq and U.S. led forces, urges Kuwait to pullout and offers a peace proposal, which later, President Bush said fell short. 

Thousands of military families across the country are facing excessive long-distance toll fees, in order to talk to their loved ones in Desert Storm. Typical phone charges are just over $3.00 for the first three minutes plus around $1.15 for additional minutes. Plus, there’s a “set-up” fee per call at $5.75. Fees are just about the same for AT&T, MCI or the Military Communications Corp. (MCC).
