Trump defends Soviet Union's 1979 invasion of Afghanistan

"Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Afghanistan made it Russia because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan. Russia. So you take a look at other countries. Pakistan is there. They should be fighting. … But Russia should be fighting. The reason Russia was in, in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia. They were right to be there. The problem is it was a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt. They went into being called Russia again as opposed to the Soviet Union."

The Wall Street Journal editorial board reacted strongly to Trump's comments in an op-ed Friday: "Right to be there? We cannot recall a more absurd misstatement of history by an American President. The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan with three divisions in December 1979 to prop up a fellow communist government."

He is right in the sense that the US should not have to clean up everyone elses problems around the world.

Particularly ones that are not really possible to clean up like Afghanistan. Which needs political solution by the people involved not a military solution from the other side of the world.

The Pakistani Government views Afghanistan as safe territory to escape to if they get nuked by India.
As long as Pakistan has nukes pointed at India, India will have nukes pointed at Pakistan.
As long as India has nukes pointed at Pakistan, Pakistan will keep the region the way it is.

I dont think its correct to pretend that Afghanistan was a paradise before the US got involved.
But we certainly made it even worse and looking at places like Syria its obvious we are not as good as Russia at policing wars between sand niggers. We are too soft I think.

india has nukes?

Joshua Sanders

Yeah India and Pakistan both have over 100 nukes.

India being much bigger than Pakistan would survive a nuclear conflict much better.
Pakistan on the other hand would retreat in to Afghanistan if they got nuked. Thats why they keep it the way it is. We pay them 3 billion a year as well to behave themselves.

Can you leaggly own guns and trucks in India and buy rural land too?

Juan Long

I would guess you cant buy guns but you can buy land. Since India was basically created by the Britsh it probably follows British laws pretty closely.

Caleb Green

Yes, but India is ruled by a bureaucracy that's nearly impossible to maneuver without breaking the law somewhere.

So it's right for USA to be there, even though it will bankrupt them.

Except the problem with Trump’s statement regarding that is the Afghans didn’t start doing terrorism in the Soviet Union till 1985 a whole 6 years after the Soviets started invade Afghanistan

It's your job and you asked for it and stabbed the rest of the west in the back to gain it. You wanted to be the only superpower on the planet, don't start complaining to us that you can't hack it anymore.

Obviously, you have NO CLUE why we are in Syria, or why Russia & Turkey are there.

You also have no idea what our Dept. of Defense wanted to accomplish there, or what Russia & Turkey are going to accomplish, especially now that piss-tape blackmail chump trump has bent to putin's will again.
