This picture taken in the early 80s shows the premier groups of the Afghan anti-Soviet resistance fighters with their primitive arms in the eastern parts of the country. The Afghans repulsed the then Red Army 1979-1989 invasion with a huge human cost and with the material aid of the western wolrd, above all, the United States. Easy estimates say that around one and half million Afghans were killed in their fight against the Soviet soldiers. AFP PHOTO (Photo credit should read /AFP/Getty Images)
