Khost

*

Khost. A province in the far eastern reaches of Afghanistan, it’s long been a hot-zone of violence.  It’s a place with a long and interesting history, a place that’s never been conquered, a place of death and destruction.

The Soviet Union entered Afghanistan on December 24, 1979. A ten year war ensued, a bitter conflict between a conventional army and an asymmetrical group of Afghani warriors. No matter the amount of soldiers, air support and artillery, the Soviet Union was doomed to fail. Losses were heavy, and on February 15, 1989, the Soviet Union finally withdrew from Afghanistan, defeated.

In the eighties, Khost was home to a fierce band of warriors . . . the Mujahideen.

On March 21, 1983, Ronald Reagan had this to say about the Mujahideen:

“To watch the courageous Afghan freedom fighters battle modern arsenals with simple hand-held weapons is an inspiration to those who love freedom.”

Little did anyone know, two decades later the United states would be fighting these same people, now labeled the Taliban. Another war, one which is currently on-going, and again the people have yet to see defeat.
