Winning Hearts and minds by cutting them out

A recent story/interview onThe Black Commentator - New Revelations about Racism in the Military - Issue 133 confirms what has been suspected all along. Too many in the military think we are at war with the entire Middle East, or Islam, which is not often well separated in even the best American minds.

Maybe this is worse in the reserves, which are less than professional about their military vocation anyway. But then maybe we shouldn't have sent the reserves there in the first place. Maybe we shouldn't have gone into Iraq at all, starting a second war before our first war, with al-Qa'ida, was finished.
