War is never simple. Allegiances are never static. This is a revealing look at our involvement in the Middle East from an Afghan perspective.

Everything has its price! Does it? How much does a human life cost and who determines what is it? What would you do, if both of your parents were killed, your house destroyed, and your brother handicapped because of an explosion carried out by someone you don’t even know?! Would you seek vengeance on an unknown enemy for the death and maiming of the loved ones by joining the war? An eye for an eye.. A vicious circle… Where does it end? or does it go forever until we are all blind? Are you a believer in “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”? Or, do you forgive and forget?
“Green on Blue” is a wonderfully emotional, inspiring and eye-opening story about a young man, named Aziz, who becomes a victim of the circumstances. A victim of the horrors of modern day war in Afghanistan, he learns that the enemy that he fights is an “invented" enemy; one created by the “higher powers” to support the war effort. Vividly written and beautifully narrated, the story takes us to a different world, a world of a foreign soldier who has to make difficult choices to survive. If you are interested in getting another perspective about the events you often learn about from the news, “Green on Blue” is a great choice.
