I thought the same Oct. 7, 2001 when the bombings of Afghanistan started, less than a month after 9/11. With the logistics involved in long distance war I would assume it takes longer to plan and execute.
Unless it was planned in advance of course.
I wonder if the outcome of the Winter War was one of
the few glitches ever to occur in the POO's great plan
for Europe. Just look at the map...Finland would have
been a natural western frontier of the USSR.
The Winter War will puzzle me forever & beyond.
And dito on the U.S. and Afghanistan.
We knew it as soon as we saw what looked very much
like the controlled demolition of the towers, didn't we..?
