    Was the invasion a “blow to the US” as said in the course, or did the US want trouble in Afghanistan?
    Carter and Brezinski started aiding the rebels in the summer of 79, several months before the USSR invasion on 25 Dec. The administration supposedly wanted to make trouble in Afghanistan although the invasion wasn’t connected to the funding of the rebels and it caught many in the administration by surprise.

    The funding of the rebels was greatly expanded under Reagan to truly cause real harm to the Soviet occupation.
