The one about guests and old fish and their smell

When you are no longer welcome, it is time to leave.
On Tuesday, without note in the U.S. media, more than half of the members of Iraq's parliament rejected the continuing occupation of their country. 144 lawmakers signed onto a legislative petition calling on the United States to set a timetable for withdrawal.
Let's flashback to Bush in 2005, seeming to suggest that such a vote would compel him to withdraw our troops:
President Bush said in an interview on Thursday that he would withdraw American forces from Iraq if the new government that is elected on Sunday asked him to do so, but that he expected Iraq's first democratically elected leaders would want the troops to remain as helpers, not as occupiers.
Uh huh.
