Bitter Lake – a retrospective on western involvement in Afghanistan

Thanks to James for the link – this is an excellent documentary film.  I have chosen the so called history teachers’ edit as I personally find it more straightforward. A history of Afghanistan since WWII, via Arab Israeli conflict, Cold War, Oil crisis and de-regulated banking, 1979 Soviet invasion, Islamic fundamentalism, 9/11, 2001 US/UK invasion, 2008 banking crisis and ISIS. Basically one man’s account of how we got to where we are now.
