Afghanistan: 'Graveyard of empires'

Neave Barker reports on lessons US could learn from Soviet's experience in Afghanistan.

    Afghanistan has been called the 'graveyard of empires' - a land that has never been conquered by a foreign force.

    Al Jazeera's Neave Barker reports from Moscow on the lessons to be learned.
