Excellent attitude. It's the same attitude that made Iraq such a raving success. USA ftw!
At least have the decency not to voice such attitudes publicly. The enemy is not on your soil. You're not on your soil. You must respect the nationals. If you're on a humanitarian mission to help them, be sure you're helping *them*. You aren't being any better to them than the Taliban is.
