Nov 13 2016......Well, I couldn't watch this all at once. Had to take a break. Once finished though, I noticed that it had another one with the director's commentary. Darn, now I have to watch it again, just because I think it's important that I do. I will say a prayer of thanks tonight, sure glad not to have to make the choices that these people have to!......Nov 16, just finished watching the film with the commentary, an effort well worth doing. Watching this, I am reminded not to take what we see on the news to heart. Our media do not really give us the whole story by far! I highly recommend this, but watch out for the kiddies, there are some fairly brutal scenes!.......I found the parallels to what we would say and do, if we were occupied by another country, quite amazing. I still wonder if building hospitals and schools, and other social programs, would not be a better use of money, rather than tanks, guns, and soldiers. Or am I just naive? It really makes me sad for the families of those who have lost their lives in this endless, horrible mess.
