The Soviet Union fought in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989 and they had 15,000 dead, 470,000 sick and wounded, and it cost them $300 billion.
They killed more than 1,000,000 Afghans and injured many more and flattened the country.
Then Bush decides we will show them how it's done. Didn't we learn anything from the Soviets?
It's past time to bring our troops home and spend all that money at home where our own people are hurting big time.
