ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the provisions in the U.S. House bill concerning the Iraq war. He emphasizes that the bill specified that its goal is to require the secretary of defense to commence the reduction of the number of U.S. armed forces in Iraq to a limited presence by April 1, 2008. Moreover, he denies that the bill means the total withdrawal of troops from the country. It also includes the missions to be done by the armed forces stationed in Iraq.
