History Is Ironic

This is irony only an old Cold War Warrior like me can appreciate. The helicopters in this video are the Soviet MI-35, commonly known as the Hind helicopter. In the 80's when the Soviet Union was fighting in Afghanistan they were the scourge of the mujahadeen, delivering death from above. Now 20 years later our pilots have trained the Afghanis how to fly them and they are now an integral part of their air forces.

Hopefully they will continue to be the scourge of the Taliban.
