Afghanistan - Cold War

The Reagan doctrine was to overterm the communism everywhere. He started stepping up the funds to the Afghan resistance, he asked the Saudis to give the money to mudjahedins. The Russians suddenly found themselves in something like the Soviet Vietnam. Vaughan thinks that if Osama bin Ladin is still alive, he’s in one of these caves they built in 80s. The Russians didn’t want the islamic regime near to their border. Brzeziński told Reagan to keep on funding the mudjahedins.
