Question by : How did the Afghan-Soviet war bring about the Soviet Unions collapse?
How did the Afghan war bring about the Soviet Unions collapse, i’ve always heard the Soviets kept fighting a war they couldn’t win till they were financially drained and destroyed economically. Is that a true assessment? How is America doing differently in the Afghan war? Is America benefiting financially, or prospering economically regardless of the war?

It was a big factor. the USSR already had a bad economy and was running out of money fast, then they decide to have a war with a country and kept pumping money into the war and wound up running out of money even faster
