    One proposition I have read is that Bre
    zhnev was genuinely a close friend of the
    leader of Afg and the guy got assassinated and Brezhnev
    just flipped in rage for revenge for the death of his friend.
    I don’t know the validity of that story. With Afg which produces 70%
    world’s opium it all always revolves around dope. Why isn’t the
    US napalming the poppy fields? On other hand opium is 85% financing of whole country’s infrastructure if you can call it that.
