In 18 days, 55 men and women have been killed in Iraq.
Fifty-five of our own soldiers killed in eighteen days.
George W. Bush leaves the Office of the Presidency on January 20, 2009.
That is 645 days from now.
If we stay in Iraq and the rate of U.S. casualties remains the same as it has been over the past 18 days, an additional 1,971 United States soldiers will lose their lives.
The majority of the country is against this war and our occupation of this country.
We cannot wait until President Bush leaves Office to begin a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq.
Bring our troops home.
