TOMAHAWK LAND MISSLES ARE LAUNCHED AGAINST IRAQ.
Three Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAM) launched off the USS Donald
Cook head toward their targets in Iraq early March 20, 2003, beginning
the U.S. offensive against Saddam Hussein. U.S. President George W.
Bush ordered the U.S. led war on Iraq tonight, based on intelliegence
that offered a chance to hit members of Iraq's senior leadership. The
ship's TLAMs are among the first to be fired in the liberation of Iraq.
