See the whole article for details of how Al Qaeda view American troops in Afghanistan:
Al Qaeda who had fought the Russians also discovered that shooting officers first doesn't stop American troops. Russian units are very dependent on their officers for combat leadership, as Russia has not had decent NCOs for nearly a century. Al Qaeda now tend to regard all American combat troops as they did the Russian Spetsnaz commandos.
