Would you rather have the SOVIET UNION still in Afghanistan and eastern Europe?
We got maximum damage and out of it and our guy, Masoud, was assassinated by the Taliban on 9/9 after a long civil war. If we made a mistake, it was not taking an active interest in who won that civil war.
There were a lot of events between the Russian exit and 9/11 which you can’t ignore, including Clinton letting Bin Laden slip out of Africa to Afghanistan after the 1998 embassy bombings, where things could have been different.
Yes because you can deal with Soviets. They may be evil but they are sane. You can’t with Muslims.
well looking back at it, sure seems pretty stupid to me, trying to look at the facts without politcal prejuduce is the key. I believe the SU was doomed to fail anyways, The system is simply unworkable, but oh what havoc was wrought because of the muzzies...
it sickens me to think of all the damn fine soldiers we lost in Afgahnistan, and all for nothing!! what a true waste... its still the same worthless place it always was... and not a damn thing was gained..
