I\\\'m a bit concerned about the entry about the war in Afghanistan; it seems a bit... pro-American. Just the second sentence, declaring the US as \\\"the victim,\\\" al-Qaeda as \\\"the attacker,\\\" and Iraqi Muslim extremists as \\\"the wrongly accused\\\" carries with it a whole host of controversial implications, plus the irrelevant apparent introduction of the Iraq war to a paragraph ostensibly concerning Afghanistan. Just to begin...

# The 9/11 attacks were unprovoked.
# al-Qaeda were in fact behind the 9/11 attacks.
# 9/11 was the primary causus belli, right \\\'\\\'or\\\'\\\' wrong, for Iraq.
# Conflating al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
# The US had the right to intervene.

The list goes on and on... and that\\\'s just that one sentence. It goes on to build on that theme, grated, not 100% {{Eagleland}} cheerleading, but I know if I were to say anything like that anywhere near an average college campus, everyone within earshot would be jumping down my throat instantly.
