ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views regarding the withdrawal of the U.S. troops from Iraq and the withdrawal timetable proposed by the Democrats. According to the author, the Democrats are behaving with their customary timidity, proposing withdrawal, but only after a year, and it seems they expect the anti-war movement to support them. He says that timetables for withdrawal are not only morally reprehensible in the case of a brutal occupation, but logically nonsensical.
