HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN THAT THE SOVIET UNION WAS DEFEATED IN AFGHANISTAN?
(LARRY SINCLAIR) I am somewhat confused over the Obama administrations recent firing of the US Afghanistan Commander and replacing him with a General who knowingly and intentionally filed and forwarded false reports in the Tillman death.
The Soviet war in Afghanistan, also known as the Soviet-Afghan War or just the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan, was a nine-year conflict involvingSoviet forces supporting the Marxist People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA)government against the mujahideenresistance. The latter group found support from a variety of sources including the United States,Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and other Muslimnations in the context of the Cold War. This conflict was concurrent to the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the Iran–Iraq War.
Can anyone explain Obama’s desire to continue to order armed attacks inside the borders of Pakistan killing innocent citizens when Pakistan is a sovereign nation?
A commenter “TJ” say’s that the use of the term “murder” is hyperbolizing when addressing the Obama ordered attacks that killed innocent Pakistani citizens, yet isn’t that the same term Bush opponents used to describe his actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan? Why is it “hyperbole” when we are talking about Obama and its not when talking about Bush? Either way both are responsible for the murder of innocent Pakistani civilians.
Let us not be so quick to jump on the Obama bandwagon in Afghanistan without first remembering the YEARS that Russian forces were in that country fighting and getting beat back until they withdrew altogether. Is the US destined to follow in the footsteps of Russia when it comes to Afghanistan?
