I posted this on another board but I think it fits here better
So I was watching this biography of the Taliban, and they were talking about how right before the Russians invaded Afghanistan we had know Idea why
they were going to do that. Swhat we didnt know is that the Soviets thought that we were planning on using Iran, Iraq, and Afhanistan and were going
to create an ottoman orginization(Empire) streatching throughout the middle east and agressivly move into southeast china, and start putting up
missles and military bases that would surround and basiclly put down the Russian threat to the western world..
Know what if that gave us or maybe the russians were correct and we were just on a slow time scale, and didnt feel the need once the USSR was tookin
down. Now its fuul ahead on that old Idea???
