I respect your disagreement, how ever; you don’t understand that there is different ways of fight a war such as this because it’s based on ideology. Right know we are doing less of blowing sh*t up and killing people because we are trying to change the battle field by combating ignorance in the area. Almost every one in the middle east were brain washed to think that America and other western countries were evil and that we are evil people and believe that what they see in movies is how we really are. Sure there are still those who are still stupid enough to believe that propaganda of those terrorist, you can’t change every ones mind. But a lot of people over there now see that we are not evil like they were first brought up to believe. Many now see the terrorist for who and what they really are, that they are the ones who are evil. Thus we have seen many people now rat out terrorist hide outs and weapon stock piles. The people there just want to be left alone. The reason why we are doing less of blowing stuff up is because we changed the battlefield by combating ignorance. Now I will admit that some soldier’s actions are not helping, such as accidental or intentional shooting of innocents because of what ever brought that about. Another reason why we are still there is because every county in the Middle East HATE each other, and will take any opportunity they can to destroy their neighbors. So if we pull out, we will be creating a vacuum and will invite disaster.
