This Film Will Speak To You Only Because It Doesn’t Say One Word

During my combat tour in Iraq, the details I remember most were the simplest things: the camp fires of roasting fish near the Tigris, the petite size of the tea cups held between long wrinkled fingers.  This video isn't about Iraq, but it tells a similar story of a country misrepresented for the sake of a narrative of war. This is your chance to sit back, relax, and look the REAL Afghanistan right in the eyes. Thank me later.

Hi there, internet friend. We need to talk. You're using a painfully old web browser, and frankly, it's getting a little weird. It's not safe, and we want the best for you. We think it's time to upgrade.

Download Google Chrome, and try it for a week. Don't think about it, just do it. You'll thank us later.
