Having watched this episode - again - in reruns AFTER watching the Darfur episodes from the current season, I wonder why the producers/writers felt the need for another Africa episode? This one was superb. It set up some awesome character development....especially for Goran Visnic\'s portrayal of Luka Kovac. With the character having been through a seemingly senseless war in his own homeland, he was the perfect catalyst to make the anti-war statement the writers were aiming for. \"In the end, my children were dead\" was a heartbreaking reality check.
It was also interesting to make the connection between the young Mai Mai soldier who remembered Carter\'s efforts to save his brother and the gang banger kid who died in the previous episode avenging the death of his brother. Anyone else catch the matching head scarves on them? War and killing happens on every turf, I guess. The futality of it can be overwhelming.
