Quote:He was overthrown by a communist leaning guy then as this communist
leaning guy begins to appease and allow the people to have more say in
government (DEMOCRACY) the people choose islamic laws so this appeasing
to religious extremism causes the Soviet Union to overthrow this guy and
replace him with another communist.

Exactly, you will find your precious Soviets were the ones to fuck up Afghanistan (even though it wasn't as good as you are claiming), not America. (well.. Soviets first, America later).


And I never said dictatorships/monarchies etc.. are always bad. I don't know where you're getting that from.
Given the right person I would prefer a dictatorship over democracy any day.
BUT because the key part of that "the right person" is often so so rare with dictatorships it's not favorable as the only way typically to get rid of a dictator is through coup or revolution (see Islamic world, Africa, Middle East, Fiji for proof of that).
