At first there?s probably going to be hell to pay but as soon as the loosing tribe(s) realizes that the majority of the people have spoken and cast their ballot for a democratically elected leader, the ruling majority should be able to settle things down and get on with running a peaceful nation. If the new government chooses to ask for American assistance and guidance in the operations of their new government, then we should be there for them. If the ruling government asks us to leave then we should honor that request also. Our biggest problem is going to be able to realize that we are no longer in the drivers seat of a new country that we were instrumental in creating.
