I have just finished viewing the film Taliban Country available now on the


This is by australian journalist Carmela Baranowska, first embedded, then
unembedded, in Afghanistan.

I read recently that Roosevelt wrote to Stimson in August of 1944:

"Too many people here and in England hold to the view that the German people
as a whole are not responsible for what has taken place -- that only a few
Nazi leaders are responsible.  That unfortunately is not based in fact.  The
German people as a whole must have it driven home to them that the whole
nation has been engaged in a lawless conspiracy against the decencies of
modern civilization."

Baranowska's video shows a nation engaged in a lawless conspiracy against
the decencies of modern and not so modern civilization.
