The Iraqi Prime Minister has apparently drafted a National Reconcilation platform that will include a specific timetable for American withdrawal from his country.

June 24, 2006 - A timetable for withdrawal of occupation troops from Iraq. Amnesty for all insurgents who attacked U.S. and Iraqi military targets. Release of all security detainees from U.S. and Iraqi prisons. Compensation for victims of coalition military operations.Those sound like the demands of some of the insurgents themselves, and in fact they are. But they're also key clauses of a national reconciliation plan drafted by new Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who will unveil it Sunday. The provisions will spark sharp debate in Iraq—but the fiercest opposition is likely to come from Washington, which has opposed any talk of timetables, or of amnesty for insurgents who have attacked American soldiers.

I swear give a sock puppet Prime Minister a little power to save face with and just look what he wants to do, throw us out of his country. What does he think he is is charge or something? I tell ya, ingrates. We haven't even finished raping, pillaging and plundering his country yet.

If he actually manages to present this to the Iraqi congress it is going to really look bad for Bush and the Republicans after their stay the course love fest in the Senate this week. Of Course this is actually very predictable to just about everybody except the ideologues who run the Bush Administration. Even our own puppets don't want us there. Of course there isn't a snowballs chance in hell of this happening, but it should make interesting summer reading.

Well the Prime Minister of Iraq did indeed present a reconciliation program that includes a timetable for American withdrawal to the Iraqi congress today. It is all over the news. This should make things interesting.

"No and a thousand times no," he said. "There can be no deal with them until they have been justly punished."

There was no mention of any timetable for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces in Iraq.

And a major “draw-down” was alreadys announced earlier in the week by the US.

Al Qeada may do spectacular attacks and garner attention for themselves but they are far from the mainstays of the insurection, both Sunni and Shia militias are. As for a scale down, 2 brigades for a total of about 7,000 troops out of 127,000 is hardly major.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Eleven Sunni insurgent groups have offered to halt attacks on the U.S.-led military if the Iraqi government and
President Bush set a two-year timetable for withdrawing all foreign troops from the country, insurgent and government officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The demand is part of a broad offer from the groups, who operate north of Baghdad in the heavily Sunni Arab provinces of Salahuddin and Diyala. Although much of the fighting has been to the west, those provinces have become increasingly violent and the attacks there have regularly crippled oil and commerce routes.
