In 2000 I specially bought a book published by frank cass a publishing company which went out of business titled VIETNAM AND AFGHANISTAN COMPARED (2) my review is attached (3) to summarise (4) USA suffered far more casualties than USSR and finally withdrew (5) calling this act defeat or victory is a POLITICAL PROPAGANDA TERM (6) USSR also fought a war in Afghanistan , suffered Far less casualties than USA suffered in Vietnam and withdrew (7) to call it defeat or victory again is a subjective political and propaganda term (8) now the greatest reason for soviet failure was not afghan war but the famous Saudi crude oil price halving that crashed the USSR economy (9) Borer the author of book I reviewed claims that WHILE USA SURVIVED THE VIETNAM WAR AND RETAINED ITS SUPERPOWER STATUS VIETNAM WAS NOT A USA DEFEAT WHILE USSR DID NOT SURVIVE AFGHAN WAR SO IT WAS A USSR DEFEAT (10) now this assertion of Borer is also questionable since (11) Russia reformed itself and today represents a far more strategic challenge to USA than USSR (12) interestingly 200,000 USA veterans have killed themselves since 1990 and more people die of opium overdose in USA in one year than all 60,000 Americans who died in Vietnam #Vietnam and #Afghanistan Compared-Super Powers Defeated Vietnam and Afghanistan Compared-Super Powers Defeated via @academia
