America's mayors are having their say on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors passed a resolution calling for an early end to the wars in those countries. The conference is headed by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

The resolution expressed support for U.S. troops but acknowledged the need for a strategic, stable pullout.

The resolution also calls on Congress to redirect military spending to domestic priorities, such as reducing the federal debt.
