Timeframe for Coalition Troop Pullout Set

The US and UK have made an addendum to the draft resolution they plan to put before the UN. The new text indicates mandate for the multinational force can be ended at the request of the Iraqi government, anytime between January 2005 - when the next transitional government elections are held - and December 2005, when the elections for the constitutional government are held.

The "no later than" December 2005 text should be all that's needed to finally put the imperialism allegations to rest. I do anticipate even more demands from Russia, Germany, France and China on this resolution.
