Battle for Hearts & Minds of Afghan and Iraqi people has been lost by US troops

Does anybody in the US really believe that the American military has won over the Hearts and Minds of the people in Afghanistan and Iraq, let alone in other parts of the Middle East?
 
Our government’s military is a corporate modeled occupation army and not one fit to over Hearts and Minds of those whose lands they occupy. For example, read Just Plain Stupidity Or A Failure By Design? … Burning the Quran; Urinating On Dead Bodies … In that commentary the author talks about the ‘brainless’ behavior of the US occupation forces. But could it be any other way? Racist military men and women hardly are the best conduit for winning people over to supporting the US. They are just over there to do a ‘job’, make a ‘career’ for themselves in the US military, and then get back home and grab some of the extras that the military offers up to its hires.
