Unease over US exit in Afghan valley where Soviets were routed

Thirty years on, former mujahideen fighters recount the days of battling the Red Army in Afghanistan after the Soviet Union invaded the country in December 1979.

Top Secret: 1 of 3 Soviet bunkers believed to have stored nuclear weapons

A tour of one of three Soviet bunkers which were presumably used to store nuclear arms, in the Polish village of Podborsko.

Polish archaeologists and scientist are certain that the facilities, which during Soviet times were officially reported as warehouses for communications troops, were in fact used to store nuclear weapons.

The top secret facilities were equipped with the most advanced security systems, including the protection from shockwaves.

The massive bunkers were built by the Soviet Union in the 1960s, in the midst of the Cold War.

GONZO: Deplatforming the Mensheviks (E2)

GONZO heads up the California coastline towards Silicon Valley, witnessing much of the economic activity along the way that makes up the fifth largest economy in the world. When it is 5 o’clock, Max and Stacy stop in for a rest at a winery in Paso Robles to ask about the issues around agriculture and whether or not Trump’s trade war has impacted business. Before crossing into San Francisco, they stop in at Monterey to talk to economist Constantin Gurdgiev, who explains that modern America is eerily similar to the Soviet Union where dissent is suppressed, opinions are de-platformed and not all voices are allowed to be heard. The disconnect between reality and rhetoric gets wider and wider as a result of refusing to hear alternative ideas. GONZO then heads to San Francisco for the next leg of their journey.
