December 26,1979: Soviet forces invade Afghanistan. They will withdraw in 1989 after a brutal 10 year war. By the way, a 1998 interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser, reveals that the CIA began destabilizing the pro-Soviet Afghan government 6 months earlier, in a deliberate attempt to get the Soviets to invade and have their own Vietnam-type costly war. He justifies this with the comment, "What was more important in the world view of history? The Taliban or the fall of the Soviet Empire? A few stirred-up Muslims or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the Cold War?" [The book, Le Nouvel Observateur, 1/98, Mirror, 1/29/02] The US and Saudi Arabia give a huge amount of money (estimates range up to $40 billion total for the war) to support the mujaheddin guerrilla fighters opposing the Russians. Most of the money is managed by Pakistan's intelligence agency, the ISI. [Nation, 2/15/99]
