Afghanistan War: The Soviet Lesson Not Learned

Thirty years ago on December 27, 1979 Russia invaded Afghanistan. After a gruesome conflict that lasted nearly ten years the Russian army withdrew facing an unwinnable scenario. The episode marks a dark era in Russian and Afghanistan history, leaving many to wonder if anything was accomplished.

Thirty years later and with the U.S. in its 8th year of occupation, Rethink Afghanistan interviews former Soviet veterans of the war and Afghan leaders of that time who believe the U.S. is repeating their mistakes.
