Anyone ever seen Rambo III? Yep? Remember those kind guys who helped Rambo survive after having rescued Trautman. Oh, how fine were they! So kind and gentle, a noble population with great ideals of freedom. You think they have changed now? They are the same as they were before, the only difference is that now they fight us (they are obliged to) instead of Evil Devil Red Children-Eaters Damn Ugly Communists. Man... we all know why we are there, and it's called oil. I'm not defending them. But they are not as bad as some african dictators. And they are not worse than us. We torture and kill them, we send Phosphorous Bombs there, violating an explicit ONU convention, burning the skin of civilians as much as the 1% of Talibans. You do NOT change anything with violence.
