    A atypical war, a war not usual and then a new form of war, where the enemy may be the person who we have seen before and who, obliged or not, is now a human bomber.
    A ramification on the society, that has been dismantled, an hate against the occident that has been used and is used as a legitimation of terror war, a politic corp that exist whithout existing. All appear concrete and abstract on the same time.
    IED, repentine attacks tactically made to make afraid the enemy. The consequences: more fallens, more killed, a complete devastation where human rights do not exist and never has existed, a human society to build.
    One may see those aspects, others aspects different and all may say. this is Afghanistan actual reality.
