A group of Senators have proposed legislation intended to push Iraqis to form a government quickly.

All I have to say is this:
1776: Declaration of Independence
1777: Articles of Confederation written
1781: Articles of Confederation ratified
1783: Treat of Paris concludes Revolutionary War (not ratified until 1784)
1787: Constitutional Convention writes Constitution
1788: Constitution ratified by nine states
1789: First President elected.

13 years.
