What we think we're doing compared to what they think

The Russian invasion of Afghanistan, seen from our perspective, was a horrible travesty of aggression. But the Russians soldiers seem to have seen it as a liberation and protection for suffering Afghans. Gee, kind of like we see our mission now?

Maybe war is not the way to help people?

Also, NPR reported yesterday that it costs the US $1 million per solider per year in our "aid" to Afghanistan. What if we gave just $1 million per school per year and see what that accomplishes?
