They succeeded in turning Afghanistan into the shithole it is today. It urks me that people unironically try to blame the US for this, and just ignore the fact that the Soviets were going around bombing people indiscriminately.

Still better. Only the country side was in mayor problems.

Untill the soviets got rekt and the muhj decided to end the comie afghan goverment.

You do know the CIA baited them in?

And remember the soviet-afghan war was pure COIN.

Vietnam was a combination of conventional and coin battles.

And the soviet troops that were commited to afghanistan were in a limited maner.

Those are some seriously cherry picked images.
My dad was in Afghanistan in the early 70s (was travelling in India/Pakistan and wanted to check out the hash) and according to him the place suffered worse poverty than India. He said the people were decent though, treated you with respect even if they didn't want your money, unlike the Pakistanis and Indians.

It was mostly the cities that had it better, the country side almost looked the same.

>the soviet union coincidently collapsed shortly after the withdrawal from Afghanistan

>The only long term consequences in the united states of the withdrawal from Vietnam was some angst and a shitload of cheap, right wing action movies from carolco and golan globus..usually starring chuch norris.
