IMO the Soviet's lost in Afghanistan due to our supplying the opposition but mostly because Gorbachev did not have the tenacity to win at all cost as did Stalin or Kruschev. They would have laid waste to the whole country as happened to Germany in WWII. Fortunately for the Afghan people that did not happen. Unfortunately for them the Taliban came to power which was more repressive than the Soviets.
