The reason the Russians lost in Afghanistan is the simple fact we were supplying the Afghan resistance fighters with weapons, and specifically stinger missiles. Do a bit of research before opening your mouth. How does your foot taste.

I think it would taste like your proof Haiku, Face the fact, your fighting an enemy you've armed. That's a facepalm decision right there if iv'e ever seen one!

Afghan democratic SOCIALIST govrnment gets undermined by CIA agitators, Russia gets called in by treaty for logistic support, USA gives Osama's "freedom fighters" more weapons. Finally Russia hauls off, USA pisses off and leaves the Afghans to their own d

Afghans to their own devices in the ensuiing civil war. Taliban rises to the top. Osama is still pissed for being backstabbed and thus, 7 years ago this day his freedom fighters became terrorists

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

I do think we can help the right people win, if we get properly supported. But historically forever, A-stan was someplace you went to die.

All the nukes in the world can't kill a couple of pissed of guys with AK-47s living in a cave and gaining constant support, no the way to prosperity lies in development and unity! An open mind is a mind at peace.

Religious fanaticism. Let me paint you a picture, Bam... Take our hardcore christian flock here in America. Look what they do with censorship, g** marriage, condoms and political influence. Now, give them millions more per year and arm them. Get it now?

@Hector: Actually RUSSIA is where empires go to die. As soon as someone is dumb enough to f*** with them they get a**ra**d by the military AND the climate at the same time

If even the communists wised up and abandoned the place, why are we wasting our time there?

You either fight them over there now, or hide your head in the sand and deal with them when they show up over here.

Conservatives = Religious Fascist fanatics
Liberals = Hedonistic Fascist fanatics
6 in one hand...
Liberals don't censor anyone... that agrees with them. They don't try to influence politics unethically... that doesn't already support their agenda.

The left is as bad as the right, they just ignore the evidence, and deny, deny, deny!

I'd rather win this one on the road anyway. In this case, home games suck.
