ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion of the relationship of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 to the recent involvement of the U.S. with the country. The 10-year war that followed the Soviet invasion in 1979 led to several events including the collapse of the Soviet Union, the emergence of Islamic guerilla fighters, and Al Qaeda's terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 against the U.S.
