Having trained soviet troops in Afghanistan and now that Pavel is doing the same for U.S troop I wonder if he reflects on the irony of this and how bizarre lifes twists and turns are? Or does he just get on with it? I suspect the latter(thats a compliment!)
He was interviewed a while back on Fox and the interviewer commented on the irony of how he is now training his former "enemies". He commented that it is interesting how history goes in circles. Sorry I don't have the exact quote. It was a great interview, I was impressed by his composure and intellect.
