The nations we are building want us to leave

So what happens when the democracies we are building in nations like Afghanistan and Iraq democratically vote and ask us to leave? Via Yahoo News;

The senate, the upper house of the Afghan parliament, also urged Western troops in the U.S.-led coalition and Afghan forces to halt the hunt for Taliban fighters and other militants.

The motion comes at a time of rising public discontent with the government of President Hamid Karzai over civilian casualties at the hands of Western troops, corruption and the failure to turn billions of dollars in aid into better livelihoods.

The senate motion calling for "direct negotiations with the concerned Afghan sides in the country" was passed by an overwhelming majority and now goes to Karzai, who has in the past failed in efforts to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table

Surely Rep. Vito Fossella already has a press release and a resolution ready condemning Afghanistan for not supporting American troops.
