The United States' House of Representatives on Friday rejected a timetable for pulling US forces out of Iraq, culminating a fiercely partisan debate between Republicans and Democrats feeling the public's apprehension about war and the onrushing midterm election campaign season. In a 256-153 vote, the Republican-led House approved a non-binding resolution that praises US troops, labels the Iraq war part of the larger global fight against terrorism and says an "arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment" of troops is not in the national interest.
