    I would like to know why did the USSR invade Afghanistan in 1979? Pres. Carter was really angry that he boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics.  The Americans at the time were angry.  I want to know would American athletes have been threatened?

    Afghanistan was a USSR friendly nation and then when the Iranians kicked the CIA out of Iran they started moving into Afghanistan because they wanted spy bases in countries next to the Soviet Union.

    The invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 was to kick the US out of Afghanistan and to make sure they stayed out.
