Afghanistan War :
The Soviet Lesson Not Learned
This year, Christmas Eve falls on the 3,000th day that U.S. forces have been in Afghanistan, as well as the 30th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of the very same nation. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan was a disaster and they proved that you cannot win the hearts and minds of the Afghan people through troop surges, and continued occupation.
It is critical to note that while we do not view this as an occupation of Afghanistan, it is clear that the people of Afghanistan view our presence as just that. Please watch this extraordinary video, and then read my blog post on Huffington Post and Daily Kos where I explain further how you can help pressure Congress to end this war of occupation.
