That may not have been on of our better maneuvers, selling military supplies to China, following the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. In retrospect, instead of arming, training and supporting the mujaheddin in Afghanistan, maybe we should have backed the Kremlin.

Anyway, neither policy has helped us in the long run.

Thanks TSgt Joe C. for letting us know that on January 24, 1980 in an action obviously designed as another in a series of very strong reactions to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, U.S. officials announced that America is ready to sell military equipment (excluding weapons) to communist China. The surprise statement was part of the U.S. effort to build a closer relationship with the People’s Republic of China for use as leverage against possible Soviet aggression.
