Made In Iran. Of Course Where Else?

I won't write the spoiler, just read the last paragraph on page two.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Taliban militants used a heat-seeking, surface-to-air missile to attack a Western aircraft over Afghanistan for the first time last week, coalition military sources say.

The attack with a weapon thought to have been smuggled across the border with Iran represents a worrisome increase in the capability of the militants that Western commanders had long feared.

The sources said the Taliban attempted to bring down an American C-130 Hercules airplane flying over the southwestern province of Nimroz on July 22.

The crew reported that a missile system locked on to their aircraft and that a missile was fired. more

The beginning of the end for Russia in Afghanistan was the arming and training (CIA) of the Taliban in the use of stinger missiles.
Once the Taliban had been supplied and trained in the use of heavy mortars by the CIA the Russians were forced to abandon their ground campaign and took to the air with massive helicopter force, the rest is history.

America, do as I say not as I do.
