And please don't flame me now, for saying as much, thanks.
At the end of the battle Rambo and Trautman say goodbye to their Mujahideen friends and leave Afghanistan to go home.

I think people are too afraid to look in the mirror in case this happens...
Apologies for that, could'nt be helped.
On a serious note however, I think most but not all people are well aware that they are lied too constantly, manipulated en masse and that they allow it to happen but the real problem is that to do anything about it you need a leader to unite people against a common enemy. This is the stumbling block because the system is already in place in a way that nobody can gain influence without taking part in the very system that they want to stop.
There are very few people with unquestionable motives, ive yet to come across one in my time, even people with the best intentions are corrupted during their quest for a better world.
Heck, even if you managed to get past all the pitfalls, guess what, you are the new boogieman!
I believe it was Adolf Hitler's propoganda minister who once said "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it"
Maybe some people really do believe everything they see and hear but thats another thing ive yet to come across.
