"Nightline" remarkable on Afghan war

I have complained before and I will no doubt complain again that "Nightline" since Ted Koppel is mostly tirvialities and banalities (each anchor annoying in his or her own special way). But tonight's program which follows a platoon ofAmericans in Afghanistan, is remarkable. Gets you about as close to real war as I'd ever like to be, and shows just how brutal and often inconclusive war can be. Why some people see war as noble or ennobling, or fantasize that it can actually settle important issues for very long, is beyond me.
