Kosovo..... The other version of a silver lining in this story; that is, the democrats created the situation in Kosovo and it appears a democrat will be in the white house when Serbian and possibly Russian tanks roll into the place.

Anybody who knows anything about the beer and hotdog concessions for that one, let me know.

@gungasnake,
Another plain wrong prediction: fancy another try.

If wrong it will be only that Russia still remembers their humiliation when they attempted to bend Afghanistan to their will. If enough Russian leaders do remember, I think it is unlikely they will take on a Balkan war that would likely be much much worse.

Yes: invading Afghanistan is a dumb idea: you wouldn't catch America trying that.

@Fountofwisdom,
Well Afghanistan didn't bomb USSR buildings and murder almost 3000 innocent Soviet citizens. And the USSR was attempting to subject Afghanistan to Soviet will rather than free Afghanistan from an oppressive ruling group, install some semblance of self rule, and allow the Afghan people to be able to choose their own destiny.

The US may have been naive and wrong headed in thinking the mass murder of US citizens warranted response and even more so that they should target bad guys instead of innocent Afghani citizens and/or could leave Afghanistan better than it was.

But there were very different motives involved here. The USSR got no support, well wishes, or assistance from the Afghani people. The US has.
