Under the unfortunately ungrammatical tagline, "Are you now, or have you ever been to Afghanistan?", NATO is sponsoring a video contest asking military personnel to tell us "Why Afghanistan Matters." Sponsored by Joint Forces Command Headquarters, the contest seeks to "provide a 'boots on the ground' perspective of the military mission" there – excluding elements that "jeopardize troop security, or show objectionable, disturbing or offensive material." Does this mean the military is growing more democratic? Or that they don't know why they're there?
