Passing a resolution calling for a pullout of U.S. forces from Iraq would lose its credibility if there were a timetable included in it.

That's what one Boulder city councilman said during a four-hour hearing on Saturday on the resolution, which has no legal impact.

Shaun McGrath says more than 70 towns and cities have passed similar resolutions that don't include time lines.

But some of the 70 people in attendance, many wearing anti-war shirts and buttons, were disappointed there was no deadline on the Boulder resolution.

The council passed the resolution 5-to-1, and will send a copy to President Bush, U.S. Senators Wayne Allard and Ken Salazar and U.S. Representative Mark Udall.

Richard Polk, the only no-vote on the resolution, says it didn't have the support of the entire community.
