Arrow Afghan istan



The Democratic Republic of Afghanistan was formed after the Saur Revolution on April 27, 1978.. The government was one with a pro-poor, pro-farmer and socialistic agenda. It had close relations with the Soviet Union. On December 5, 1978, a friendship treaty was signed between the Soviet Union and Afghanistan. On July 3, 1979, United States President J C signed the first directive for covert financial aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.. Due to the interminable nature of the war, the conflict in Afghanistan has sometimes been referred to as the "Soviet Union's Vietnam War" or the "Bear Trap"...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQ7vm1MGxMs
