# Afghanistan Wartime Architecture

Afghanistan Wartime Architecture is a (huge) series of pictures taken in Afghanistan by photographers from the U.S. Army since the war started in 2001. Of course, the photographs are extremely self-indulgent and maintain the American propaganda (coming from the Army, nobody was waiting for something else !), but also shows interesting military architectures that have been built or appropriated there. Those instant fortress recalls the Roman Legion's camps that were constructed very quickly and the logistic behind it is interesting to observe. For example the American who originally produce the Bulldozer D7, seem to have bought a certain amount of those back from the Israeli who customized it in order to make their best oppressive weapon against the Palestinian out of it.
