The War on Afghanistan and Islam November 3, 2010 Lost Treasures of Afghanistan- Film How is the recent past of war explained, or is it? How are the Taliban portrayed? If you only saw this film, what would you think was happening in 2006 in Afghanistan? It seemed as though war was over, nothing was going on What do you learn of the complexity of Afghan society through the film? If you think about Mamdanis article, what makes good Muslims in the film? Do you see any similarities with Rwanda or Darfur? The Taliban are presented as cold people, real people are emotional, they care and cry and get upset. Real people hated the Taliban Wanted to preserve the Cold wars and proxy wars The End of colonialism Haiti was the first wave of colonialism, and with the second wave, we saw that colonialism set up through divide and rule. Where people adopoted and were willing to kill and die for the identities molded by the colonists. We are trying to look at a history that bridges two very important eras 1.st second wave colonialism 2 cold war- post second ww war, begins with relationships between America+uk+france, against ussr 1989- berlin wall falls in 1991, the countires that were united under the ussr begin to divde as there is no economic means to maintain. 1940s-1991 What are the pressures and processes to ending the second wave of colonialism The second world war- following it in those regions there was a bad taste, this war was seen as European, and yet this war caused a large deal of death and destruction in other peoples homelands in other cases, many of the colonial holdings actually joined the war effort on behalf of the colonial overlords. www.notesolution.com
