In the 1980's the U.S. government trained, financed, and armed the Mujahideen Islamic guerrillas of Afghanistan to resist the Soviet invasion of their homeland. Today that training and those sophisticated weapons have come back to haunt the United States in what is being called "blow-back." While the CIA was busy training the forerunners of today's hated Taliban, others were waging a different type of warfare. Vincanzo Sparagna and Savik Shuster were two journalists working for the monthly Italian magazine, Frigidaire.

In 1983 the mischievous pair decided to have a bit of fun at the expense of the Soviet occupiers of Afghanistan. Sparagna and Shuster printed a mock version of the official Red Army newspaper, Red Star, and distributed it in Afghanistan right under the noses of the Soviet occupation troops, including this drawing portraying a rugged Soviet soldier kneeling in the snow of Afghanistan, breaking his Kalashnikov rifle over his knee, while yelling: "The war is finished! Let's go home!"

This design is perfect for people interested in the Soviet-Afghan war, the Cold War, propaganda, and military History.
