Fact of the Day: Chinese Support Soviet-Afghan War

While minor in comparison to other sides in the war, but Maoists and China officially supported the Afghans rebelling against the Soviet-backed communist Afghanistan. Soviet-Chinese relations soured after the death of Stalin when a major shift in communist policy occurred between the two nations.

It happened before the Afghan war, but the whole point of Nixon's trip to China was to exploit differences between the two communist regimes.

And for history after 10 years in Afghanistan, the then Soviets got out with their tales between their legs. The present Yankie intrusion will end the same.
Afghanistan has NEVER been conquered. Can't idiot leaders learn from history?? Certainly not your present lunatic in that "White House", should be renamed the LUNATIC ASYLUM at 1600 Penn. Avenue.
