Afghanistan War: The Soviet Lesson Not Learned

Reported by Ellen - December 24, 2009 -

Our friends at Brave New Films (with whom we are proud to be associated) remind us that today is the 3,000th day that U.S. forces have been in Afghanistan, as well as the 30th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of the very same nation. In response, Robert Greenwald has posted the latest Rethink Afghanistan video, "Afghanistan War: The Soviet Lesson Not Learned." As with all the Rethink Afghanistan chapters, this one offers a compelling, disturbing and persuasive argument against the U.S. policy there. Video after the jump.
