In its long history, Afghanistan has never been conquered. Even the Russians with their impressive military learned that the hard way. Boots on the ground will never win in that country and you can’t nuke them back to the stone age because they still live in the stone age. Send a few well placed tactical nukes as a gift and then get the hell out....red

“In its long history, Afghanistan has never been conquered.”

Once. By Genghis Khan. But the Golden Horde was infected with Islam in the process.

Genghis Khan conquered Afghanistan. Of course he’s #1 ON THE LIST OF EXTREME BUTT-KICKERS.
