Afghanistan: 'Graveyard of empires'

Afghanistan has been called the 'graveyard of empires' - a land that has never been conquered by a foreign force.

Russia's red army spent a decade there and returned to the Soviet Union broken and defeated.

As the US sends more troops to Afghanistan, it could learn from the former Soviet Union's experience there.
