ABSTRACT
The article discusses the initiative by Democratic majorities in Congress to end America's military involvement in Iraq. The Senate version of the appropriation sets a withdrawal of most troops by March 2008 while the House version sets a complete withdrawal of all troops by September 2008. While President George W. Bush is expected to veto anything that implies limits on military operations, both the House and the Senate need to reconcile both versions of the bill.
