The Iraqi Parliament is asking Arabs to become martyrs by launching attacks on US forces stationed in Kuwait. Iraq says such attacks are justified because these troops are poised to invade Iraq.
This statement is a response to Kuwait's rejection of Saddam Hussein's invasion apology. Kuwait called Saddam's pledge for Arabs to attack US troops an "incitement for terrorism." Several attacks on US soldiers have occurred in the last month.
The Iraqi News Agency quotes a Parliament member stating: "We in Iraq and in the entire (Arab) nation believe that every faithful Arab has the right, duty, and the honor to confront these forces (in Kuwait)."
