This video of Malalai Joya and Noam Chomsky speaking in Boston is from March of this year, but sadly, is every bit as relevant today. Chomsky's analysis of the situation in south and central Asia is especially enlightening.
It's a long video, but maybe some evening you'll want to watch it instead of a movie, or keep it on in the background while you file papers (as I am) or cook or some other task.
Canadians, just substitute Canada for United States. It applies to us, too.
Chomsky also gives a brilliant historical perspective on the US's GWOT. You know, the one that's being fought since WWII.
