Racist Underestimation

One of the reasons both the Afghans and the Iraqis have managed to fight the USA to a stalemate with almost no budget and a small fraction of the population is American racism. Americans underestimate their opponents over and over. A recent example is the way Afghans have hacked the video broadcasts of the predator drones with $26.00 USD software. Americans did not take even the most basic precautions because they were sure all the Afghans were technically illiterate.
