  7. 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.
