How does this strategy being followed by our Army in Afghanistan make any sense or have any possibility of success?

The more we fight, the more we kill, the more we are hated, and the more support the Taliban have. We are just hated aliens. No man whose wife has been killed will ever be our friend. We cannot shoot randomly toward villages and not kill families.

I am not a military person and I simply cannot understand how our approach can work--ever. Please, can some of you who have been in the military explaine why we are doing this?
