Remember Afghanistan? That’s the place where we started a war in order to catch the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks of September 11. That’s not the place where we decided to invade a country to get their oil.

I don’t know what the answer is, but we’d better start paying attention. To help us appreciate the beauty of the country and the horror of the war, the Big Picture blog has some stunning and haunting photos. Go have a look.
