      Don’t worry about the Russians. They have lived much worse times that these, and always recover. You should worry about your head-chopping, “moderate” terrorist friends.

      At least, that’s what your State Department is doing –with your taxes, of course.

  3. US had Viet Nam, you guys had Afghanistan. Either way, it sucked for the guys in the field. Politicians need to spend time in uniform before they should be allowed to send troops into harms way.

  4. Its a pitty that the west did not see the necessity to fight the islamists together with the sovjets. As a result those barbarians where supported with money and weapons. The situation is now that half europe is in danger.
