    Get out of Iraq! Withdraw or Veto?

    Stardate 7498.63

    Well good news for Iraqis. The Senate and House have both passed the Bill that pumps another $124 Billion in to the Iraq occupation effort, but more importantly, the Bill has set a timetable for the start of troop withdrawals from Iraq.

    The $124.2 billion bill requires troop withdrawals to begin Oct. 1, or sooner if the Iraqi government does not meet certain benchmarks.
    Naturally, Flightsuit McChimpy can veto this bill if he likes...

    The huge bill would fund the war, among other things, but demand troop withdrawals begin on Oct. 1 or sooner if the Iraqi government does not meet certain benchmarks. The bill sets a nonbinding goal of completing the troop pullout by April 1, 2008, allowing for forces conducting certain noncombat missions, such as attacking terrorist networks or training Iraqi forces, to remain.

    I almost find it humorous how Canadians have been pushed into staying in Afghanistan far longer than this deadline. The recent vote was a joke as far as I'm concerned. The NDP voted against the Liberals withdrawal timetable because they want immediate withdrawal. Of course, that won't happen anytime soon, so why waste time voting against something that is better than nothing? Oh yeah, better to have NO progress in the House of Commons...
