Some BBC commie stuff about Afghanistan. Claims that:

*Pakistan enables the insurgency through safe havens, training etc. Without this support the insurgency would be doomed.

*Russia supports the Taleban with weapons, propaganda to destabilize the US effort. Putin - who will save us from Sharia law. :lol:

*Taleban fail to take and hold ground, now more focused on terrorism than before.

*Despite the religous focus of the insurgency it might morph into a drug producing operation because there's money to be made here...

Even Alexander didn't fully subdue Afghanistan. Nothing new.

Doesn't surprise me. He is a scum bag gangster despot. He'll do anything and everything he can to thwart his perceived enemies and promote his own power.

Looks like a simple strategy to me...Sometimes "support" is exactly what's needed to help insure destruction.... His best hope is for them to keep the fight going and perpetuate a meat grinder for other regional aspirations they might have.... It has little to do with thwarting the US... In fact it's probably exactly what the US prefers.... a political solution would certain turn into a Taliban victory eventually.

Maybe its payback for Syria...

The officer in the video claims the Russian efforts have picked up about the same time as stuff in Syria happened. I'm assuming he talks about Trump bitch-slapping Putin with some Tomahawks...

Putin's main problem is the fear of Islamic foolishness gradually taking over his southern states.

That's why he's in Syria.... he sees correctly that the US is far more interested settling old scores with tyrants then they are with supporting marginal Islamists... He wants to insure Islamists have a meat grinder to jump in there too... While his goals are somewhat at odds with the US, it's hardly a face to face confrontation... same with Afghanistan...

Just as the US did when Russia occupied Afghanistan.

Reminds me of what Churchill said about the Italians in WW2:

"It's only fair. We had them the last time."
