What’s the point of artificial Iraq withdrawal time lines?

Democratic leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday proposed legislation that would bring American combat troops out of

Iraq by August 2008 at the latest. (more)

Does this make any logical sense? If you’re convinced the war is wrong, why not demand a withdrawal right frick’n now! On the other hand, if you actually want to win, you tell the world “We’ll leave Iraq when we are convinced that its democratic government can stand on its own — and not a minute before!” Heck you might also want to mention that for every bomb blast, we’ll extend our stay even longer.

But nooo, the democratic leadership in all their brilliance says, “This war is very bad so we’ll pull out in a year and a half” [my paraphrase]… Heck, I bet their base thinks this is as stupid as I do.
