I watched Red Dawn yesterday and observed something
In the movie the leading Cuban Officer is speaking with a Russian General and he says "the only way we are going to win this war is through Hearts and Minds." Thought that was interesting hence what we are doing in Afghanistan/Iraq.

Colonel Ernesto Bella: [in the now-occupied Calumet, Colorado] It would seem necessary to win the support of the people. As our opponents used to say in Vietnam: "Win their hearts and minds."

"This week's phrase is ''winning hearts and minds,'' which, even Iraq war apologists agree, is the key to winning the ''war on terror.''

Unfortunately, what war supporters are apparently unwilling to acknowledge is that winning hearts and minds, to the extent that we're dealing problems of perception, can't be done through military means alone."

Yeah, kinda difficult to win the hearts and minds of a people when you are rounding them up, putting them in work camps, rationing their food, eliminating all travel, and of course, killing a bunch of them off from time to time.
