You forgot one thing, the Russians remember Afghanistan very well, unlike the American's who continue to fight WWII over and over again.
The example then was Vietnam and the eleven years it took before the USA was defeated, same thing now, only it's a desert. If you learn from others
mistakes that is intelligence, if you continue to make the same mistakes over and over ... you're an American Politician.
