Some comments on the U.S. military strikes against Afghanistan and Sudan:
NEWT GINGRICH, House Speaker, R-Ga. ''We have not yet gotten assessments of the damage, but I hope that it's been very decisive and I think it's very important that we sent the signal to countries like Sudan and Afghanistan that if you house a terrorist, you become a target. '' -- House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.
TRENT LOTT, Senate Majority Leader, R-Miss.
''Our response appears to be appropriate and just.''
JESSE HELMS, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman, R-N.C. ''Sooner or later, terrorists will realize that America's differences end at the water's edge, and that the United States' political leadership always has, and always will, stand united in the face of international terrorism.''
SEN. DAN COATS, R-Ind.
''We fear that we may have a president that is desperately seeking to hold onto his job.''
GEN. HENRY SHELTON, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. ''This is not simply a response to some specific act, but a concerted effort to defend U.S. citizens and our interests around the globe against a very real and a very deadly terrorist threat.''
ABDUL RAHIM MOHAMMED HUSSEIN, Sudan Interior Minister. ''We have no chemical weapons factory in our country. We have no chemical weapons factories at all.'' -- Sudan Interior Minister Abdul Rahim Mohammed Hussein.
IKE SKELTON, R-Missouri, ranking Democrat on the House National Security Committee. ''We have to stop them now. Anyone who says this is politically motivated is absolutely wrong. That's nonsense. These are dead Americans.'' -- Rep. Ike Skelton of Missouri, ranking Democrat on the House National Security Committee
SEN. CHUCK HAGEL, R-Neb. in Middle East. ''Terrorism is the scourge of our time and we must deal with it swiftly, forcefully and without mercy.''
