It almost looks as though Canadians are tiring of their presence in Afghanistan as well.  This can't be good for the long term success of the NATO mission there.

Afghanistan a Lost Cause for Canadians

Agree            59%

Disagree         34%

Methodology: Telephone interviews with 2,038 Canadian adults, conducted from Sept. 8 to Sept. 18, 2006. Margin of error is 2.2 per cent.

This is very bad, the US is depending on foreign support to keep Afghanistan.  It would be ironic painfully so, if the US was forced to flee Afganistan before pulling out of Iraq becaue the Allies don't suport the mission.
