Now all the insurgents need to do is sit and wait.

In a direct challenge to President Bush, House Democrats unveiled legislation Thursday requiring the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the fall of next year.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the deadline would be added to legislation providing nearly $100 billion the Bush administration has requested for fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

She told reporters the measure would mark the first time the new Democratic-controlled Congress has established a "date certain" for the end of U.S. combat in the four-year-old war that has claimed the lives of more than 3,100 U.S. troops.

This is taking the top spot on stupid crap done by the democrats in an effort to continually undermine this war and its efforts.

This is ridiculous.

Its like being in a boxing match and telling the opposing fighter that you are going to throw a left hook next so make sure you duck under it and knock me out.

Like has been said before. Democrats are invested in the failure and loss of this war. Not in its victory.

Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., and chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, said the proposal would bring an "orderly and responsible close" to American participation in what he called an Iraqi "civil war."

Funny isn't Darfur a civil war and the left wants us to go in there. Might I add so do I. Its called consistency! Bosnia was also a civil war. We went there with no Democrats objecting? Where was the outcry then?
