RIP Charlie Wilson

Charlie Wilson may be dead, but is not gone: he can be visited along with thousands of national heroes memorialized at Arlington National Cemetery. Wilson will be buried with full military honors, which befits his enormous contribution to the expulsion of the Soviets from Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Without Afghanistan, how much longer might the Soviet Union have lasted?

What the world owes to Charlie Wilson.
