What's your opinion on this article?

This eye-opening 12 minute documentary explores the decade long war in Afghanistan. It was produced as part of Hizb ut Tahrir Australia's campaign on the decade anniversary of the war. It is time for a honest and rigorous assessment of this war and in the Australian context, continued involvement in it. The politicians, from both sides, have regurgitated the same platitudes, built on false narratives, for ten years, as more soldiers have died, more civilians have perished and more of Afghanistan has been destroyed.
