Adam Curtis's lively documentary, adapted to radio by KD. This interesting and entertaining look at recent history shows the folly of even trying to reform--let alone conquer--Afghanistan.

Part 3 shows the corruption, conflicts, complexity, warlordism, and ever-shifting local alliances of Afghan society today. And it shows the naivete and ignorance of the English and American occupying forces--and of the politicians who dispatched them. (Continued in "Credits," below:)
Armed with a simplistic "Good vs. Evil" worldview--and ignorant of the complexities and conflicts of modern Afghan society--the occupying forces are increasing death and destruction while moving Afghanistan farther away from the goal of stability and democracy.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "thumb") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
