The leader of the town told him flatly they "would rather see their children dead than their children grow up in America".
Not to be taken literally, I am sure, but obviously you have trouble comprehending what an affront the American offer was to their sense of honour.
The implication is that your country (Afghanistan) is such a useless pile of crap that you do not deserve to keep your children and give us your
children because we, in America are so much better than you.
Well, not everyone would agree that America is so much better; even if they are playing in the mud in the streets. You have no idea of the sense of
camaraderie and love that might exist between the poorest of people that would put to shame the shallow relations between people who are rich.
Talk about your arrogant, ignorant American!
