What the US Army does in Afghanistan?
Soil and Marjan
The US invaded Afghanistan in 2001 under the pretext of fighting terrorism and following the 9/11 terrorist attack that many experts argue today was an inside job. “Soil and Marjan” is a short narrative about the sufferings of Afghan girls and women. It highlights that the so-called US “war on terror” has, in fact, deteriorated the lives of Afghan people instead of building it. In fact, what we are witnessing in the war-ravaged country is a growing social decline. The historical fiction story is about a father who helps his daughter get married by preparing everything for her to start a new life in Kabul. He has lost his wife as a result of the US strikes against civilians in Afghanistan. One part of the short narrative focuses on the issue of rape in Afghanistan. It says how US troops continue to commit gross human rights violations in an attempt to cure their boredom and homesickness.
