While there may be hard choices in Iraq, military intervention in that nation is not warranted considering the role that Iran has played in supporting the government of Prime Minister Nouri Kamal al-Maliki ( "Hard choice in Iraq," June 16). Certainly, the international community including the U.S. has made tragic mistakes in the ongoing conflict in the Middle East, but only minimal diplomatic intervention for the time being should be considered. The obvious solution at the present is to withdraw from the now escalating war between Shiites and Sunnis, particularly in light of the more radical elements gaining control.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Kweisi Mfume of Baltimore declared yesterday that President Clinton's threat to send U.S. troops to Haiti "should have been there all along," given the violence being inflicted by that nation's military rulers.Charging that Haitians are "being hacked to death and fed to animals" while the United States futilely calls for change, Mr. Mfume, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, was among several members of Maryland's delegation who applauded Mr. Clinton's newly hardened stance.

The Democratic congressional candidates in Maryland's 6th District largely agree on major issues facing the country: They all favor immigration reform, more infrastructure spending to help boost the economy and a woman's right to have an abortion. But despite broadly similar positions, a few subtle differences emerged at a forum in Gaithersburg on Sunday, where several hundred voters turned out to hear the five candidates speak. They offered different answers on how to handle Iran, for instance, and what should be done to address ethical lapses in Washington.

WASHINGTON - The United States would intervene militarily to defend Taiwan if the island were attacked by China, President Bush said yesterday, making what foreign policy analysts said was the most explicit U.S. promise of armed assistance for Taipei in more than two decades. Later, the president seemed to soften his pledge, denying that there was any change in U.S. policy and describing American military intervention as an option and not a guaranteed result of an attack on Taiwan. Even so, the comments added up to a hardening in U.S. rhetoric toward Beijing, if not a new policy, raising the oft-feared but seldom-discussed prospect of a U.S.-China war at a time when relations between the countries already are at a low point.

SCRAMBLING to revive its moribund Haiti policy, the Clinton administration has decided to rule out a compromise with the country's military leaders and to broaden economic sanctions.The one certain effect of this new policy will be to greatly increase the possibility of U.S. military intervention.Faced with the tightened embargo, which will go into effect next week, Haiti's rulers will not just throw up their hands and go. They will engage in political maneuvering, such as Wednesday's installation of the 80-year-old Supreme Court Justice Emile Jonassaint as "provisional president."

Mexico City. -- Last week's overthrow of Haiti's first democratically elected president may for the first time spark joint military action by the Organization of American States (OAS).If so, the action to reinstall President Jean-Bertrand Aristide would mark a turning point for a 43-year-old organization that has been little more than an obscure debating society long dominated by the United States.The OAS early Thursday voted to send its secretary general and representatives of eight countries to read the riot act to the military junta in Port-au-Prince.

Russia's incursion into Ukraine has created a mess, and hopefully America will stay out of it ( "Containing Putin," March 3). Let NATO, the United Nations and the European Union work things out, though military action by any of them is unlikely. In fact, NATO's Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Gen. Philip Breedlove, told reporters that the alliance "had no military plans to support Ukraine if it were attacked. " On Friday, President Obama said the U.S. "will stand with the international community in affirming there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine.
