Photographer's Note

This little hand made wall-rug depicts well the invasion of Afghanistan by its giant and powerful neighbour, the super power of the time, the USSR.

The brave Afghans fought US's proxy war, sacrificed more than a million lives, hundreds of thousands got maimed and disabled and their infrastructure was completely destroyed. The result: they defeated one super power and has been occupied by another one instead!

Lesson to learn: do not fight other nations' proxy wars, and do not start infighting among yourselves once you have defeated an agressor as this will weaken you and you will be invaded by those who instigated you to fight for their cause: you will eventually lose despite defeating your enemy!

P.s: I have placed this picture in "Pakistan", though I should have put it in "Afghanistan". I am not sure whether it was made in Pakistan by Afghans living there or was it made in Afghanistan. I don't know either when was it made!
