  •  Way, way too late for that (none)
    The Arab League and the UN will never, ever take this monkey off the backs of the US.  It is way too late for that now - I used to think like this too but having talked to folks who consult at the UN it just isn't a realistic option until the insurgency is largely quelled.  I have never heard of this contingent withdrawal plan before either, it's definitely worth some consideration.  For example 'refraining from violence' would have to be relaxed somewhat since there will never be a month in which terrorists refrain from violence against the Iraqis.  But it's an interesting idea..I just wonder whether the US government wouldn't use it as an excuse to keep forces there forever a la Israel in the West Bank.
