Where's a plan, Democrats?

I'm sick of hearing that phrase.


Dennis Kucinich and a bipartisan group of Representatives on June 16 introduced House Joint Resolution 55, the Homeward Bound Act, calling for a plan and timeline to be established for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. The Bill reflects the rising tide of discontent among Americans about the U.S. occupation of Iraq, whether or not they supported the war initially. In the last two weeks, due in part to continuing U.S. casualties, the huge cost of the war, the release of the Downing Street Minutes, publicity surrounding this Bill's bipartisan support and opinion polls showing widespread disapproval of President Bush's handling of the war in Iraq, a majority of
Americans have begun to ask what our goals are and to call for U.S. withdrawal. Read about the Homeward Bound Act at:
Homeward Bound Act

Kucinich had a plan "US out UN in - in 90 days" when he was running for President that he drafted in 2002. It's easy for someone to ask where something is when their eyes are closed. Clearly the US needs to withdrawl - and clearly a true multinational UN peacekeeping force needs to be implemented in order to assure security for the growth of Iraqi security forces, because they're in the middle of a fucking civil war.
