Thanks for the advice Mr. Gobechev . . . any words of wisdom on how to keep your country from imploding and ceasing to exist?
its really not that hard they figure it out 200 yrs ago
As our so called POTUS cannot make up his mind and will only listen to his circle or leftist advisors, I agree.
Don’t joke - we may implode soon. The U.S. govt and military are filled with Islamic moles already including dhimini General Casey the POS.
At least the Russians do not have Muslims running their country.
I believe this moron said the same thing about Iraq-he’s not the most reliable person to be giving advice about anything except covering up skin blemishes.
The implosion and death of the USSR was at the very least hastened by their staying way too long in Afghanistan.
He knows this.
I agree that putting more funds / troops in Afghanistan will harm America’s ecomony. And I sadly say that as someone who was on the ground in Afghanistan for almost six years. But BO is for anything that is bad for America.
I agree. But I think he also knows that the US has already waged a monumentally successful campaign in Afghanistan and it led to the USSR’s defeat there. Given that I strongly suspect the intentions of any advice that he might give.
Gorbachev is a washed up Communist who likes Vlad Putin and hates America. He would love to see the US leave Afghanistan dejected, and for the Russians to move back into there.
one could argue leaving is safe in the short run but then you have the taliban back and al queada back and pakistan next door with nukes
Islam is the problem.
There are many people who say that Russia is supplying weapons and expertise to the Taliban, and that the neo-Soviets (and Chinese) want us to bleed there.
let them have it, we'd be better off with them there than Jihadis
Gorbi and Putin remain upset Russia’s controlled communist Iron Curtain came crumbling down, freeing Moscow’s captive Eastern European nations. However with the Obama crowd running the show in Washington, the Kremlin has plans to expand today’s neo-Soviet Empire with their comrades in Washington assisting. Poland, Czechoslovakia and the three Baltic states are likely their first targets, coupled with Georgia in the south.
