She's right. If it weren't for us, the Soviet Union would still exist, and the Soviets would have figured out a way to enroll al Qaeda as part of its evil empire.

Well, technically, if you consider Afghanistan Al Qaeda's home base, she's right.

Mr. Rob - she has a good point. WE stopped Soviet imperialism. They had an agenda to expand SW to the Araian Sea. THEY wanted Iraq, Iran, etc. India used to be a close ally. they went after Afghanistan as a stepping stone. they went after SE ASIA.

Bo is historically corret, demonstrably.

She's right. We sold them Stinger missiles in the 80's which gave them a defense against Soviet air superiority.

I think she was referring to USSR's occupation of Afghanistan. If US didn't supply afghanis with stingers, Soviets would've never left.

I THINK she's saying that we are the reason that the Soviet Union fell apart, and was thus unable to finish the job of conquering Afghanistan.

That's right. They should appreciate us. The Soviet Union was intent on absorbing their neighbors, and they had zero tolerance for Islamic extremism. Afghanistan, home of Al Qaida, would still be Soviet territory were it not for our military aid to the mujahedeen.

If it wasn't for the U.S., Afghanistan and many of the people who make up Al Qaida would be licking Soviet boot.

Well actually there were 7 prior plans prepared, Preparations A through G, they all failed. Then they devised an 8th and on the hole, Preparation H seemed to work.

Exactly. If the Russians won, Afghanistan would be a breakaway state right now, far worse than it currently is. Hindsight being what it is, 20 years ago Russia was the enemy. Now terrorists and radical Islam is the enemy of all mankind.

Huh?

Al-Qaeda is not a sovereign nation. How could they have come under the control of the USSR? Sure, we backed the mujahadeen but only as a means of sticking it to the Soviets.

Thanks for the clarification -- the title of this post had me scratching my head there for a moment. It sounded like the implication was that Al Queda and the Soviet Union would have been in cahoots had it not been for us -- and knowing how both those groups hate each other guts (score one point for the commies) this just did not compute.
Thanks for clarifying Bo's real comments.

The only Hollywood star (at least I seen) that visited Reagans coffin while lying in state, in the capital rotunda. (I`m not talking about the service.) She took the time to stand in that huge line, unlike Kerry who cut ahead of everyone and stepped over the ropes with his photographer for a photo op.
