Reporter goes to the frontlines of the Afghanistan war on the Taliban | 60 Minutes Australia
You read about it, you see snippets on the news and, we hate to say it, Afghanistan becomes just another battle zone. Another skirmish in the so-called war on terror. That is until you’re in the thick of it, under enemy fire. That’s when you realise how grim, how relentless, maybe how futile this war really is. Despite the jubilation after the American invasion five years ago, the Taliban has not been defeated. Far from it. This conflict is now deadlier than ever, and we’re about to send 240 more Australian troops into a country where the enemy’s everywhere and everyone’s a target.
