The House Democratic leadership recently proposed tying funding of operation to a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq.

 

As is well known, this effort failed.

 

Apparently, in devising this measure the members of the Democratic caucus expected support from a number of their GOP colleagues.

 

The number of GOP supporters they expected has been quoted as sixty.

In his stump speeches in Iowa and New Hampshire, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barak Obama has frequently said that the support of 12 GOP Senators is required to pass the antiwar measures that Congressional Democrats advocate.

These two numbers 60 in the House and 12 in the Senate are the basis of the title of this article, the 60-12 solution and are a matter of importance to all anti-war activists.

The events of the spring and the maneuvering around the timetable issue have demonstrated that a Democrat only approach to ending the war is inadequate.
