More Examples of Losing the Hearts and Minds of the Public

a US military convoy got into an accident in Kabul that killed 3 people. a fourth died from gun shots, apparently from a US military gun. the article can only get an annonymous witness as the police in Afghanistan are not authorized to talk to the press. (typical and ironic). the last part says it all:

Afghans often complain about what they call the aggressive driving tactics of the U.S. military. Convoys often pass through crowded areas at high speeds and sometimes disregard road rules. The U.S. military says such tactics are necessary to protect the troops from attack.
The US military does not care about winning the hearts and minds of the people. They only care about themselves. They don't realize that in order to win the hearts and minds, you kinda have to make a sacrifice.....so ironic seeing that this war is so strongly supported by Christians.....
