    Reader comments on Osama

    Subject: Re: the afgans should build there own luck.
    Date: Aug 31, 2006
    Sender: KiwiPrevious | Next

    Howdy,

    I have just returned from Afghanistan and watched this movie, which made me cry.

    When you meet these very people in person it is in their eyes that you see all this pain and I've never had that portaryed to me before through the media as this film did. It is true, and it is still happening in Afghanistan that women are being treated like this. The Taliban are gone (although in the south they remain a potent force) but women are still being treated like this.

    My most heartbreaking experience was a visit to the Bamyian Orphanage where young 12 and 13 year old girls who had lost their parents to the Taliban were living. Those girls will be married off to old men - and there is nothing you can do about it.

    I'm not going to talk about the right or wrong of the western military involvment in Afghanistan, but the one thing that will haunt me forever is the eyes of those children - what will be come of them.

    Kiwi.

    the afgans should build there own luck.

    No need to create such as western type film "osama" to change the Afgans.They would change themselves by there dignity & hard labour.
