    .NOT having to drag you teepee around on two sticks behind your horse (riding horses had never occurred to them until they saw the Spanish do it) following herds of buffalo

    Horses had become extinct in the Western Hemisphere 11,000 years prior to the Spaniards reintroducing them to the New World.

    The Havoc program was started prior to USSR’s Vietstan experience. Preliminary designs were submitted in 1977. No doubt lessons learned in Afghanistan were incorporated into the production versions. Paris airshow debut for the Mi-28A was in 1989 the year Russians left Afghanistan.

    This is what happens when you let a faction, left or right, takeover the education system. Revisionist history, political indoctrination, and a restructuring of language is the end result. The only recourse is for taxpayers to hold the schools accountable. Now that the NEA and AFT unions have stated that they will teach CRT no matter what, the battle is really on.


    I have no problem with students being taught factual history, warts and all. I do have a problem with racism of any kind being advocated by the government. Get involved with your local school board etc, make your voice heard. (steps off of soapbox)

    Boroda is out Boroda’d by a left wing rag:


    Gorbachev’s decision to pull out of Afghanistan was primarily motivated by a desire to reach an accommodation with US imperialism, though growing internal pressure was an important factor too. The Afghan war was proving to be a quagmire, an endless drain of resources, while mounting Soviet casualties were arousing growing discontent at home. Gorbachev, representative of the younger, technocratic wing of the Soviet bureaucracy, wanted a rapprochement with imperialism to allow himself space for his top-down attempt to reform the outmoded Stalinist apparatus. In reality, it was too late. Such was the depth and extent of the decay of the planned economy, brought about bureaucratic mismanagement and the corruption of the ruling elite, the ‘nomenklatura’, all attempts to modernise the system from within were doomed to failure. It was soon to become abundantly clear, with the fall of the Berlin wall, that the bureaucratic system of Stalinism could no longer assure even the most basic social progress – economic growth, full employment and elementary social protection – within the Soviet Union or the satellite states of Eastern Europe. Is it any wonder, in this light, that the Soviet leadership abandoned Najibullah (who replaced Babrak Karmal in 1986) to his gruesome fate?

    You have to give credit where credit is due even when its one of Boroda’s factually challenged rants or alternative historical accounts. You know things are bad when one of The Onion satirical columns come true, “The Onion Predicted America's Middle Of The Night Pullout From Bagram In Afghanistan

    Nearly a decade after a satirical piece ran about 'slipping out' of Afghanistan, American troops unexpectedly cut the power at Bagram as they left.”

    Yup... Just like all our wars. Fuckin Taliban will behading collaberators before the last transport plane takes off.

    Yup. Any poor sod who had anything to do with us is a walking dead man along with his family., ala Saigon in 75.

    You are nothing. And your name is no one.


    Wherever you encounter Russians/Soviets - you miserably run with tail between legs.

    Laugh out loud now that did make me laugh. You do prove the old adage " Two wrongs don't make a right", take your parents as an example. Good enough for the ad hominem crowd?
