Rumble: The Russians Are Back in Afghanistan!

(Shortly after the Northern Alliance chased the Taliban from Kabul)

We are driving in a convoy from Bagram airport to the capital. There is a huge traffic jam, as one of the bridges on the road was bombed, and a tank is stuck in the middle of the by-pass. There are probably twenty Russian military trucks in front of us. I get out of the car, and see they are all from Emercom, the Russian Emergency services.

I find their convoy leader and joke: "So, you Russians are back in Afghanistan, hey? Let's hope you will be more successful than last time you guys were here! Hahaha".

They did not think it was funny.
