The battle for Afghan hearts and minds
Yes and what do the humble farmers and herders think about this war to free them from the control of the Taliban?
Well its really a different opinion than one would get from the town folk. now America's plan includes winning hearts and minds.
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- "Why are the Americans in our land? What can I say, we are powerless."
The words of an Afghan farmer, Khan Mohmad, who fled war-torn Helmand province, leaving his land behind and finding refuge in a dreary camp on the outskirts of Kabul.
Khan Mohmad along with thousands of other displaced Afghans now squat in makeshift clay huts, using any bits of trash to make a home.
He is a striking man. His eyes lined with kohl and his dirty blond hair wrapped in a gray-black turban as he speaks in a soft but frustrated tone.
"We moved here because of the American oppression," Khan Mohmad says. "If the Taliban shoot one bullet on the Americans from our village, the Americans will bombard the entire village."
