Afghanistan - Soviet invasion of 1979! "Jihad: Afghanistan's Holy War" (Dec.1996)
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

"On Christmas Eve 1979 the Soviet armed forces invaded Afghanistan. Over the next ten years one million Afghans were killed and approximately four million fled the country. The war in Afghanistan was largely ignored in the West -- the trickle of information that left the country came from Western journalists and filmmakers who entered Afghanistan illegally, ignoring Soviet threats of arrest and execution." journeymanpictures
