The Su-25 Frogfoot
By SOF

The Soviet Union was facing a problem in the 1970s. The United States was deploying the A-10 Thunderbolt, which was designed to carry out close-air-support missions, which could decimate the large tank formations that the Soviets were counting on to smash NATO.

According to a report by National Review Online, John F. Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, wrote in his report, “Despite the drawdown of U.S. and Coalition forces [from Afghanistan], our mission there is far from over. With almost $18 billion appropriated but not yet spent in the pipeline, and probably another $6 to $10 billion promised annually for years to come, Afghanistan reconstruction should still be relevant to every U.S. taxpayer and policy maker.”

SELOUS SCOUTS’ LAST MISSION: KILL ROBERT MUGABE
By Tim Bax

It was late 1979, and the internationally-brokered peace talks between the Rhodesian government and the two leading terrorist factions, Joshua Nkomo’s Zimbabwe People’s Revolutionary Army (ZIPRA) and Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army (ZANLA), were well under way. It was clear that the talks would culminate in a “one man, one vote” election being held, resulting in black majority rule and the birth of a new country, Zimbabwe, rising out of the Rhodesian ashes.
