Say, does anyone remember the eighties? When the Soviet Union was going win their war in Afganistan?
Remember how Reagan funded and trained this dude named Osama Bin Laden? Gave this young Saudi upstart weapons and training so that his little band of merry men could continue to stab at the great Soviet Army?
See, the idea was to get the Soviet Union bogged down in an unwinnable war, to drain their economy and military, to create massive civilian opposition to the war to weaken the entire structure of the Soviet government and bring down the communists.
Worked pretty good.
