Winning the hearts and minds of the populace is something that has become of primary tactic in Afghanistan. The whole concept of modern COIN ops involves creating a long term trust relationship with the locals. While I think this is important, there is always going to be a disconnect between the average Afghan and foreign troops. This is exacerbated by the fact that the USMC plays up the Pashtuns as a "proud and nobel" culture. Then you get to Afghanistan and the people fuck farm animals, shit in their front yards, and act in a manner so backwards it makes even the worst redneck seem cultured in comparison. There is also the fact that they are as two faced as they come. The same Afghan will smile and wave at you while hiding Afghan fighters in his back-room.
