WikiLeaks : US diplomats suggested Bollywood stars should tour Afghanistan


www.guardian.co.uk

US diplomats suggested that India send Bollywood stars to tour Afghanistan to aid international efforts to stabilise the country. In a confidential March 2007 cable responding to a request from Washington for "specific, concrete ideas for opportunities for India to use soft power in helping Afghanistan's reconstruction", officials said Bollywood was an area that "seems ripe".

"We understand Bollywood movies are wildly popular in Afghanistan, so willing Indian celebrities could be asked to travel to Afghanistan to help bring attention to social issues there," the cable said.

This article shows how US goverment is desperate in Afghanistan. Clearly unsuccessful war campaign leads to this kind of fricky and stupid ideas of US establishment. Penthagon is living in dream land ,they still after 9 years didn't learn Afghan mentality,their culture,their way of living.Get out of Afghanistan,problem solved.

Actually this kind of makes sense given another cable that came out. It was posted here but ATS is a odd place at times - sometimes things get a huge amount of traction and sometimes very little. This fell into the very little category.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

To sum up that post it was discovered that ..
Let them watch Letterman! US TV best weapon against jihad, cables claim

.. or so the cables claimed. David Letterman and other US TV shows had the best success at diminishing extremism in Saudi of anything.

So, based on that cable it would make sense they would want to try the same thing in Afghanistan.
