74. Yes, it is very sad.
Instead of force, our wealth (military) and intellect should be focused on the "Three Cups of Tea" philosophy.

"As with much travel writing, Three Cups of Tea is repeatedly concerned with overcoming cultural divides. Though gifted linguistically and with a childhood-bestowed familiarity with exotic cultures and developing nations, Mortenson is often seen struggling with cultural differences, from a foul-smelling butter tea to the commonly encountered attitude by many well-meaning Americans overseas of, "Don't tell us what we want; we'll tell you." Education is also a dominant theme, for which Mortenson continues to express his passion. He explains that education is the solution to poverty."
