If any of you have Netflix (quickster?) you have to watch the documentary / miniseries Baker Boys.
This is one of the best "War" documentaries I have ever seen. Well this and restrepo.
It follows a war reporter embedded with infantry in the 2008 surge. The soldiers tell you exactly what is going on what they think about their roles in Iraq, How they feel about their duties.
Most mind blowing for me was how they pay off tribal leaders. Watch it mind blowing for anyone who wants to know what the hell is going on.
