    • If a single US soldier was shot from an enfield, it’s a maximum. Western soldiers in that shit hole are diying from IED, 90%. They have a overwhelming advantage in firepower, skill, number, technology and tactics, meaning that almost 100% of firefights with the scum end badly for the latter

  1. “It’s an Italian plastic anti-tank mine. it was used to undermine Soviet and Afghan armored vehicles.”

    UNDERMINE? Seriously, undermine? Go back to school.

  2. I remember reading about all this back when I was young and I always felt that Russia was wrong in what they did but I now wish they had prevailed. The world might be a better place now if they had. Unfortunately we are now mired in the same place with our troops bleeding on the same ground for people that truly have no desire to become civilized.

    • Actually, the pro-soviet gov (with many sov funds) built all the “modern” infrastructure of the country, raods, bridges, schools, hospitals, water/electricity. Soviets helped the population too, building infrastructure at local scale. The civil war, the talibans, screwed all this work.

    • If by respect you mean ending their dreary existence in that shithole…then sure. Soviets inflicted far more of that respect than the Americans ever did.

  3. When you think about it, the western world condemned Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. The outcome might be different today if the western world did not arm and finance Soviet opponents. The twin towers still might be up and there would be less islamic terrorism today if the West did not interfere.

    • Well, duh, given how shitty some of these images are, a little photoshop to make them presentable was probably required after scanning.
