Amazing writeup and flic. Apparently now widely shown to US poltiical leaders who might have learned some lessons. Well maybe not since they don't seem the learning kind.


Terrific ending:

Dzunda, wounded but standing and with nowhere to go, watches the Afghan women who have been following the tank for days to exact revenge, appraching him with murderous intent and says, part in wonder, part in the tone of a man who knows what's coming next and there's nothing he can do about it and parti n the realization that he is truly in a place completely alien to him: "Afghanistan".

Roll credits.

Great movie. I had never heard of 9th Company, so thanks


Sometimes movies offer a blueprint on how to best confront a problem. There is a movie that showed us how to defeat terrorism, in fact, it takes only one scene. Yes, it's the opening scene of a movie that ends with the line, "I'm Lt. Frank Drebin, Police Squad, and don't ever let me catch you guys in America." That's American exceptionalism.
