so the hearts and minds campaign is finally getting under way lets hope it actually does some good now its finally started

after all if were going ot be there for another 10 years if all the troops give out toys ot the kids and keep doing it then maybe just maybe the new generation of adults will be less idealogically motivated and both better educated and more understanding about the rights and wrongs of the society they were born into.

of course it will never happen because we cant afford the sustained cost of running the effort and they will drip back to there old ways more embittered than now because they will feel let down just as the previous generations do/did
