|May 14, 2007--Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel (D) announced "a plan
guaranteed to end the war in Iraq." Gravel proposes a "United States
Armed Forces Withdrawal From Iraq Act" which states that, "No member of
the United States armed forces may remain within the borders of Iraq on
and after the 121st day after this bill becomes law." The proposed
bill would also prohibit funds from being spent on operations in Iraq.
Further the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense and Secretary
of the Treasury would be required to certify their compliance with the
Act, and violations of the Act would be "punished by a fine of $1,000,000
and by imprisonment for five years."
