    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Archival footage:
        -Zbigniew Brzezinski: conversation about Afghanistan threat, and the "God is on your side" speech.
        -Jimmy Carter: 1980 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan statement.
        -Ronald Reagan: swearing-in ceremony, "the Bible tells us" speech, and the "condemn aggression" statement.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Charles Cogan (CIA): We never considered that the Soviets would actually back out of Afghanistan and negotiate their way out. It didn't seem a credible thing for them to do, because we didn't think that they were at all disposed to do that. So, naturally, when we talked with the Pakistanis, we pressed them always to continue the pressure."

      • Vasily Safronchuk: (Soviet Foreign Ministry): The Afghans wanted us to introduce a limited contingent of Soviet troops to guard military bases. They just couldn't cope with the Mujahedeen themselves. At first they spoke about a battalion, then about a brigade. They kept insisting and pushing for Soviet troops but we kept refusing and refusing and refusing.
