“I remember when I was running, the fog was so thick that I couldn’t see the people around me and the edge of the road under my feet, but I still could feel that people were running desperately in one direction. I don’t know how long and how far they ran. Suddenly, they probably finally ran out of the range of gunpowder smoke, and their eyes lit up. We stopped, looked at each other, and asked every stranger around us from the bottom of our hearts: are you okay?”

on September 11, 2001, Jonathan, a photographer of Newsweek, woke up at his home in the west side of Manhattan, went to the kitchen to make coffee, looked up and saw a plane crash into the towering World Trade Center not far away. A few minutes later, stunned, he witnessed the second impact, which was not an accident. Professional sensitivity made him grab the camera and rush to the scene: an extreme panic, inexplicable, helpless, people fell from a high place in front of him.

nine years later, Jonathan said, “finally running out of the thick fog is the last memory of the day. I still can’t remember how to go home, how to wash away the noise, how to lie down and fall asleep.”

partial amnesia is probably the response of people to sudden disasters; However, the unforgettable pain caused by the disaster, as well as the hatred and vigilance against the perpetrators, are enduring and profound. People, after all, it is difficult to easily forget hostility. Today, nine years have passed since the “9.11” tragedy. The US government, which declared war on the Taliban a month after the terrorist attacks, is still stuck on that land. On the other hand, Americans do not want to go to Afghanistan after 11 years of “spkds”. On the other hand, they are still reluctant to take risks.

At the same time, in order to appease domestic anti war sentiment, he promised to withdraw troops in July 2011 while sending 30000 more troops in December last year.

however, when Afghanistan changed generals in June this year, he began to be vague about his commitment to withdraw troops. Petraeus, the commander-in-chief of the U.S. military in Afghanistan appointed by the president, said in a recent NBC program that the president has made it clear that the withdrawal date “depends on the situation”, and the decisive factor lies in the development of the battlefield situation.

at the same time, a new round of opinion polls conducted by the associated press from August 11 to 16 showed that 60% of Americans opposed the war in Afghanistan, and their support for Obama’s decision to expand troops fell to 38% from 46% in March.

at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year, the documentary restepo won the best documentary award. Filmmaker Sebastian, American. Jung and British Tim. Since 2008, thurington has been stationed with a U.S. military company in the Kara mountain valley, the most dangerous battlefield in Afghanistan, and has truly recorded the fighting, life, emotion and death of 15 soldiers stationed in Afghanistan.

at the same time, they also photographed the shabby mud huts of Afghan residents being arbitrarily broken into and searched; The cattle raised by the elderly in Afghanistan were shot and killed by American soldiers, cooked and refused to pay compensation; Afghan children died in a mistakenly dropped bomb, their flesh and blood blurred, and their families were speechless and tearful beside them. The American soldiers did not apologize for all this.

and the pain on the other side is not the focus of the film. Its main attempt is to describe the contradictions and struggles of Americans in the war.

at the human rights Film Festival in June, lestrebo premiered in New York at the center. “I never thought, and should never, make a film about the Iraq war, because I never thought that the war was right. It was based on a lie,” Jonger said at the audience meeting after the screening

in other words, American and British filmmakers can focus on Afghanistan, still based on their recognition of the rationality of this protracted war; Even if some doubt is raised, its initial position and final care are still obvious.

“can a mosque be built near the” 9.11 “site

therefore, it is not difficult for us to understand why the proposal to build a mosque near the” 9.11 “site has caused an uproar in the United States in recent months.

there is a 150 year old building on Park Street not far from the site of the world trade center. On May 26, the New York Community Council voted to approve the establishment of a large Islamic cultural center, including a mosque.

as soon as the case came out, there was a huge wave of opposition. However, on August 3, the landmark Protection Committee of New York City unanimously approved not to grant the landmark status of the building, which means that it can be demolished and the last obstacle to the construction of the mosque was removed.

radical opponents – many of whose close relatives were killed in the September 11 terrorist attacks – put up signs saying “the mosque celebrates murder here”. On August 4, the day after the resolution was made, a law promotion group called the American Center for law and Justice filed a lawsuit against the landmark Committee in the Supreme Court of New York, saying that its decision undermined the policies and procedures of New York City on the establishment of landmarks and was irresponsible
