I’m not a military strategist. I’m not a foreign policy expert. I’m sure that all of my Truly Conservative friends will just think this is a bunch of liberal hooey, but I like the hearts and minds approach this guy talks about. At one point he says something to the effect that you make a lot more progress with a road or a school, by being involved, than you do by being removed and throwing bullets.
It really has a gospel sound to me. As a postmil leaning sort of fellow, this seems to be at least pointing in the right direction.
