Much has been written about Obama’s “hearts and minds” strategy in dealing with the war in Afghanistan and the debate about Iran. It’s hard to believe you can win the “hearts and minds” of a culture that will execute 10 innocent aid workers, behead their enemies, and terrorize and murder poverty-striken villagers! These people believe in stoning !! Just as Lyndon Johnsons’ strategy failed in Vietnam, we are doomed to ultimate failure in Afghanistan. Fanatical zealots do not have a heart, mind, or soul to win over. Hatred, violence, and terrorism is all they can comprehend!
America cannot be in the “nation building” business in Afghanistan (or Pakistan or Iraq)! These fanatics are against Christianity, America, and anything outside their twisted beliefs. There is no compromise!! No negotiation! America must fight, with purpose, to defeat & kill these maniacs; or pack up our crap and come home! Make a decision! Stop wasting American lives with policies that are indecisive! Come on!!!!
