Quotes: Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan
We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would...That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Soviets into the Afghan trap ... The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter "We now have the opportunity of giving to the Soviet Union its Vietnam War."
Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Adviser to Jimmy Carter, talking in 1998
