a fantasy about real leadership....

Common Dreams

Good shit from Common Dreams, its a whole thing about how if you piss off the enemy then they are going to be that much more willing to lay down their lives in order to kill you. Take Al Capone or any of the other gangsters of that era, they were ruthless men who killed anyone who crossed them. They were judge jury and executioners, and you were not innocent untill proven guilty, but many people in their neghborhoods still liked them because they would help people in need. They would do little things to help out the common folks, thats what is now called winning the hearts and minds. These were gangsters that were loved by their communities, how did they understand this concept and yet our government gets it so so wrong.
