Definitely a five-star read, you must read this book. After being totally immersed in it, I saw how foolish it has been for our troops to be fighting in Afghanistan. To think that our UNdeclared war in that country is going to change the cultural beliefs of the Afghanis is absurd, asinine. Let them be. Their internal problems are theirs to own, not ours. To think that our weaponry, our military power is changing or going to change their ways is stupid. All our forces have accomplished is the killing of innocent people. Yes, we might have killed a few baddies, but look at the price . . . and it is not our business. Read Hosseini's book and see whether it changes your current perspective. A brilliant tome.
