“Tonight I call on President Clinton to rally our nation,
strengthen our international coalitions and build up the forces
necessary to win the war,” she said. “If the NATO comman
ders and the Joint Chiefs of Staff feel it is necessary to send in
ground forces, I would certainly support that.”
Dole, who has signaled her intention to seek the 2000

which drew more than 250 participants from colleges across
the United States and around the world.
Dole’s call for NATO and the United States to “win the
war,” even if that requires committing U.S. ground forces in
Kosovo, echoed earlier calls by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.,
another presidential contender.
The Clinton Administration has said it would commit
ground forces only to defend a Kosovo peace agreement,
which remains elusive.
