Sebastian Junger discusses directing the new documentary "Korengal,” the follow up to the Oscar-nominated film “Restrepo,” which Junger co-directed with his late friend, Tim Hetherington. "Korengal” picks up where “Restrepo”  left off: the same valley, same men, but a very different look at the experience of war. The film was shot by Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington on location in Afghanistan’s Korengal valley and in Vicenza, Italy, at the unit base of the 2-503, Battle Company of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team. "Korengal” opens May 30 at Landmark Sunshine Cinemas.

What a shame that National Geographic Channel did not do the three-part production mentioned, especially since "Restrepo" was so strong.

I think this war that "we" decided to fight is simply Vietnam Part 3: A quagmire, supporting a corrupt government, and a complete waste of life. What does he think?
