Sir: What's interesting here is that one of the socio-cultural studies done by one of the Afghan human terrain teams was of Afghan fairy tales and fables. In all of them the Afghans portrayed themselves as small, weak, frightened and needing to hide from the strong, powerful, invading "boogeyman" that was an outsider or an invader. Now I can't recall which ethnolinguistic group this was done among, but this information has been in the system for well over a year if not two. There is simply no way, what so ever, for an outside force to successfully integrate Afghan societal elements, let alone the elements with a government. There never was and its likely there never will be.
