What will they do now?

It was reported that Iraqi leaders are now calling for a pullout timetable for American troops.

I don't understand why this is such a controversial idea. Let's set benchmarks and say, if these benchmarks happen, then we'll be able to pull out troops by a certain time.

This isn't rocket science. Call it an exit strategy, a victory strategy a freedom strategy, whatever. But we need a list of benchmarks and proposed dates to bring troops home. And I'm sort of in favor of Murtha's plan myself. His plan suggests that we're making the problem worse just by being there and that we need to strategically redeploy to the surrounding areas of Iraq and let the Insurgency die that way.

It's called a tactical redeployment.

I really do believe us just being there makes things worse.
