i fear that after having gotten into this, we are going to bail also.  i wasn't in favor of the action.  i really wasn't in favor of going with no defined mission.  still, when you have started a thing, it's important to finish it....if you ever figure out what the end game is.....
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
