Ideally speaking, adopt a total war/total victory, nothing is off the table platform a la WWII. Unleash the entire might of the U.S. Military. No more PC bullsh*t R.O.E., no more off limit areas to attack/pursue the enemy similar to what was done in Nam, no more court martials for U.S. warriors doing their job, no more obtaining permission to return fire when under fire or when observing enemy movement. If the enemy is in a mosque directing sniper fire from minarets, give the building the Monte Cassino treatment.
Supplies coming in from Iran? Bomb the supply lines. Supplies coming from Pakistan? Bomb the supply lines. Step up drone and Spec Ops in Waziristan and trouble areas outside of the Afghan border. Spend less time worrying about building infastructure and giving the Taliban a seat at the table in return for their cooperation, and more time killing the enemy.

How do you distinguish who is the enemy and who isn’t?

ABSOLUTELY agree with you!
All wars since WWII which the US has been involved have been fought as a scrimmage rather than playing to win. In addition, to fighting to win, we MUST stay in the conquered country at the minimum of a generation to change attitudes and the culture.
If we as a country are unwilling to give it our “all”, we should NOT send American boys over for ANY reason.
