Afghanistan was a disaster for Russia. But one has to wonder how often the practice of drawing another country into war with a third country is exercised. I suspect it happen far more often than we would like to believe. I'm sure Americans were delighted that the Russian were involved in an expensive war they could not possibly win, but what it did to Afghanistan resulted in the Taliban and Sharia Law which was a disaster for all women and children in the country.
Gee, can't think of anybody like that!
For many of us, it made it clear that communism was a great hoax, that it creates a phenomenal level of paranoia, and that it makes obvious that a world without God is a very sick and sad place.
Yet there are many, many liberals who would completely disagree. They are those who will find their daughters or granddaughters wearing niqabs and living under Sharia Law and wonder how it happened.
Is NATO the tool for accomplishing this?
